Well, those were the most interesting results for this BSD vs. Linux benchmarking from the Xeon E5 v4 Broadwell-EP test system on the MSI X99A WORKSTATION motherboard. If you want to see even more test data, head on over to Feel free to carry out your own BSD vs. Linux benchmarks with the Phoronix Test Suite and share them with us via OpenBenchmarking if so inclined. See my earlier BSD testing article for more of my qualitative thoughts on the latest BSD OS releases.
