The timed HMMer search was virtually identical between Arch and Ubuntu.

Switching to a series of disk tests, Arch Linux with its default EXT4 file-system really came out in front. Arch 2009.08 did much better than Ubuntu 9.04 with the 32 threads of 64MB writes under the Threaded I/O Tester.

Arch Linux did even better when looking at the latency when performing disk reads. Ubuntu 9.10 will be the first Canonical release that switches to using the EXT4 file-system by default.
