Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu 19.10 vs. Clear Linux vs. Debian 10.1 Benchmarks On An Intel Core i9
Intel's Embree ray-tracing kernels on the Core i9 7980XE saw similar performance roughly between Windows and Linux. To some surprise, Intel's own Clear Linux wasn't the fastest with Embree but Debian 10.1 tended to carry a lead.
While with Intel's SVT-AV1 video encoder, Clear Linux returned to the front.
Debian did pull out another upset in the Intel SVT-HEVC test.
