Fedora 30 Performance Is Moving In The Right Direction But A Lot Of Untapped Potential

In Firefox web browser benchmarks on each distribution, Clear Linux and Fedora were tending to lead in these cases -- some rather significant leads for Clear.

Lastly is a look at the geometric mean for the dozens of tests conducted successfully on all operating systems under test with this Intel Core i9 7980XE system. The complete data set of all the benchmarks run can be found via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file. OpenSUSE Tumbleweed came out as 2% faster than Fedora 30, Ubuntu 19.04 at 5% faster than Fedora 30, and Intel's Clear Linux was 15% faster than this newest Fedora release. Given all of the engineering resources being invested into Fedora by Red Hat, it would be intriguing if they would look at squeezing more performance out of Fedora as that ultimately will get back into Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Fedora 30 is slightly faster than Fedora 29, but as these results show and data on other systems coming up soon, there is plenty more that can be done on Fedora to squeeze better performance out of modern hardware.
