R Benchmark was also used for looking at this statistical-focused programming language. Clear Linux again came out in front, especially with the Core i9 7980XE system followed by CentOS.

With the Go programming language's benchmark when looking at its JSON handling performance, Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS is much slower than the rest but at least is competing with next year's Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. There's no clear winner in this particular test but is a toss-up between Clear and openSUSE Tumbleweed.

There's no clear winner either when looking at the garbage collection performance with Go on these six Linux distributions.

Tensorflow and Caffe were only tested on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Clear Linux 19110 due to dependency issues, but here we see Intel's optimizations continuing to pay off with much greater performance than what's found out-of-the-box on Ubuntu.

It was a similar dependency situation with Python's SciKit-Learn, but at least Ubuntu 18.04 LTS didn't have issues with dependencies but it did regress noticeably in speed while Clear remained on top.
