AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X Linux Performance After Three Years
The most significant uplift from 2020 to 2023 with the latest (Ubuntu) Linux software was found with graphics tests making use of the Radeon RX 5700 XT (Navi / RDNA1) graphics card, Python benchmarks thanks to upstream performance optimizations, and then a random assortment of other workloads benefiting from the latest Linux stack.
Those interested can see all my benchmark numbers here.
If taking the geometric mean of the 135 different benchmarks run, the Ubuntu 23.04 + Linux 6.2 performance was 15% faster than 2020 with Pop!_OS / Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on the same System76 Thelio Major workstation. Overall the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X continues performing very well on Linux with its 64 cores / 128 threads and the System76 Thelio Major as well as held up extremely well for this hand-crafted workstation from the Colorado Linux PC vendor.
