Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu 19.10 vs. Clear Linux vs. Debian 10.1 Benchmarks On An Intel Core i9
Comparing the NVIDIA graphics/compute performance between Windows and Linux remains one of the most boring comparisons... Simply as when using the latest binary drivers from NVIDIA, the performance for years now has been on-par between Windows and Linux thanks to their largely shared code-base. So no real surprises from these results. The only differences tend to come for gaming where the quality of the game port to Linux ends up making a large difference or when needing to run through SteamPlay/Wine. For those interested in gaming results, those cross-OS numbers will come in their own article with that not being the focus of today's more HEDT focused testing.
Golang's HTTP performance was actually the fastest on Windows but the Microsoft OS lost out in the other benchmarks of this popular Google-developed programming language.
Where Intel's Clear Linux platform begins kicking into high gear is with the Java benchmarks where it tends to dominate over other Linux distributions as well as Windows 10 thanks to Intel OTC's relentless tuning. Debian 10.1 did pick up a few wins in the Java tests.
