Intel Xeon Platinum 8380 "Ice Lake" Linux Performance One Year After Launch
Intel's Clear Linux continued to lead in most of these Linux benchmarks on the Xeon Platinum 8380 Ice Lake server.
Upstream PHP continues delivering nice performance improvements out of their annual major releases.
See this result page with dozens of benchmarks carried out across the Ubuntu / Clear Linux / CentOS Stream operating systems on this Xeon Platinum 8380 dual socket server. When taking the geometric mean of all the old vs. new results, Intel's Clear Linux remained in front and was 3.2% faster overall with the geometric mean for all the benchmarks conducted. Going from CentOS Stream 8 to CentOS Stream 9 yielded a 5% geo mean improvement with the more significant version bumps between Stream 8 and Stream 9. Ubuntu 22.04 LTS meanwhile on this Ice Lake server was offering around the same performance as seen with Ubuntu 21.04 last year, which was slightly ahead of the Ubuntu 20.04 LTS series.
