When running Open Image Denoise, the Intel open-source software project providing a denoising library for ray-tracing and used by the likes of Blender 3D, Windows was keeping pace to the Linux metrics but this particular software package does not scale nearly as nicely as the others being tested. This was another example too of Windows 10 Enterprise offering better performance than Windows 10 Professional for this $3990 USD HEDT chip.

The Stockfish chess engine was an interesting and rather unique case in that the Windows vs. Linux performance was on-par from 16 to 128 threads.

With asmFish as the Assembly-tuned chess engine, Linux tended to perform better than Windows but at the 128 thread configuration actually matched the Clear Linux results.

With the proprietary V-RAY Next renderer, Linux was offering better performance each step of the way. Windows 10 Enterprise was also offering slightly better performance than Windows 10 Professional.
