Zenwalk, Sabayon, and Alpine Linux were much slower than the rest in Himeno while the optimized Clear Linux distribution came out barely ahead of Fedora 23 for squeezing a first place finish.

Of course, the optimized distributions with more aggressive compiler flags like Clear Linux will lead to slower compile times.

With the C-Ray multi-threaded ray-tracer test was a situation where Clear Linux, Antergos, and Void Linux was much slower than the rest.

But the optimized Clear Linux distribution did win by a long shot with the Smallpt OpenMP path tracer due to its default CXXFLAGS.
