With the asmFish chess benchmark being hand-tuned Assembly, there is no real difference in performance though openSUSE Tumbleweed and Clear Linux did have very slight advantages against the other operating systems benchmarked.

The Y-Cruncher pi benchmark had a slight lead with Debian while the Windows Server releases tested were well slower.

The XZ test profile now works on Windows, using the official Windows release. The performance of Windows Server 2019 with XZ file compression was slightly ahead of Debian 9.6 and an improvement over Windows Server 2016.

The Zstd test profile for Windows is also new and saw comparable performance to the Linux distributions under test while Ubuntu 18.04 LTS won this particular benchmark.

The FLAC audio encoding performance with the latest Windows Server release was also comparable to the Linux distributions.

In the case of LAME MP3 encoding, the tests on Windows were much better than five of the Linux distributions but the Windows Server 2019 performance and that of Clear Linux were easily the fastest.
