DragonFlyBSD 5.3 Offering Some Performance Improvements
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 9 October 2018. Page 4 of 4. 2 Comments

The N-Queens performance was slightly faster with this newest BSD operating system state.

The GIMP performance appeared to be noticeably slower on DragonFlyBSD 5.3.

The Python performance is at least slightly faster.

The PHP performance is also looking up on DragonFlyBSD 5.3-DEVELOPMENT ahead of DragonFlyBSD 5.4 stable.

In many of the benchmarks there are nice performance improvements, but also in some there are several cases of slower performance at least on this Intel Xeon E3-1280 v5 system... Anyhow, when the DragonFlyBSD 5.4 release nears I'll be back with more benchmarks and on a larger spectrum of hardware tested. Those interested can find additional test data from this current run via OpenBenchmarking.org.
