Linux 2.6.23 Kernel Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 8 October 2007. Page 2 of 2. 5 Comments

These are just our very initial benchmarks from the Linux 2.6.23 kernel and by no means can any definitive conclusions be drawn. From these common Phoronix benchmarks, the performance difference was minimal with only a very small performance boost in RAMspeed. However, thanks in large part to the new Linux scheduler there are performance improvements in other areas not covered by these benchmarks (especially when multi-tasking). Once we have tested this kernel more thoroughly, we will be back with additional information. Have you tried out the Linux 2.6.23 kernel or one of the testing releases? Tell us what you think of it in the Phoronix Forums.
