For some workloads the performance is quite close between the six Linux distributions under test...

But for a number of them, Clear Linux shoots ahead. Manjaro also tended to have a fairly strong showing as well compared to the other four.

For some of the workloads, running Intel's Clear Linux can really pay off due to its optimized defaults from kernel tuning to compiler flags.

But for many of the workloads there is small but measurable uplift compared to the other modern Linux distributions running on the Ryzen 9 5900X.

Clear Linux's extra tuning beyond just the "-O3" default implied by many of the upstream programs/benchmarks under test can really pay off.
