When comparing against Intel's Clear Linux, we are used to seeing that dominate in the majority of test cases given the emphasis on performance by the Intel engineers working on that open-source distribution. But increasingly with a seemingly diminishing effort by Intel focused on Clear, in some areas other distributions have been catching up.

For some of the storage tests, EndeavourOS and SalientOS were now ahead of Clear Linux along with Ubuntu.

Clear Linux tended to lead with the Radeon graphics tests while Fedora Workstation on Wayland was performing quite capable too.

In the demanding Unigine benchmarks where the Radeon RX 5600 XT is quite stressed, there isn't much of a difference between the tested modern Linux distributions.
