While the Ubuntu results weren't dramatically different between the releases tested on this Ice Lake server, going from Clear Linux 34630 back in May to Clear Linux 35470 in ending out the year was showing quite a difference especially in HPC workloads.

Though it didn't pay off in all cases.

Intel's Clear Linux is known for its aggressive defaults, compiler tuning, shipping AVX-512 optimized packages, and countless other tuning. These strides made in 2021 show they are not done with their relentless optimizations.

Optimizing the OpenJDK Java performance is one of the areas Intel has aggressively pursued optimizing.
