Python 3.11 Performance Benchmarks Are Looking Fantastic
I'll be back around with even more Python 3.11 benchmarks closer to release, but already these performance numbers are extremely enticing after not seeing much in the way of significant performance optimizations on recent Python 3.x releases. It will also be interesting to see if the likes of Intel's Clear Linux can push the Python performance even higher.
When taking the geometric mean of all the Python benchmarks I carried out for this article on the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, Python 3.11 Beta was about 41% faster overall than the current Python 3.10.4 stable release or 45% over the aging Python 3.8 series. All the individual benchmark data can be found via this OpenBenchmarking.org result page.
