Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 21 May 2019. Page 5 of 5. 11 Comments

I've also been testing RHEL 8.0 on the EPYC 1P Tyan server and a Gigabyte EPYC board and it's been working out well throughout all of my testing this month.

If looking at the geometric mean of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.0 performance, the Dell PowerEdge EPYC 2P server comes out to 54% faster than RHEL 7.6. RHEL 8.0 on this particular AMD server platform was faster than Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and even Clear Linux but behind Ubuntu 19.04 with its Linux 5.0 kernel.
