AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X Linux Performance After Three Years
In a small portion of the workloads the "2023" performance was slower than the at-launch performance for this Threadripper 3990X workstation.
The SVT video encoders is one of the areas that is performing more slowly on a modern Linux software stack than in 2020.
Like SVT, the x265 video encoder was also slower when running on the 2023 Linux software stack.
With a three year newer GCC compiler and all of the compiler work in that time, many of the workloads are compiling slower now on GCC 12 than with GCC 9 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Compile times with newer compiler versions are often slower but at the benefit of increased language support and often faster run-time execution.
