With the SciMark2 micro benchmarks, there wasn't much of a difference in performance though the results indicate a preference in the Clang compiler over GCC.

TSCP was causing Ubuntu 16.04 to hit CPU thermal throttling issues on the MacBook Air while ran fine on Ubuntu 17.10 and macOS. With this chess benchmark, macOS was running about 10% faster than Ubuntu.

While with C-Ray multi-threaded ray-tracing, Ubuntu was faster than macOS, in part thanks to this benchmark doing better with the GCC compiler.

Primesieve is also a winner on Ubuntu with GCC's OpenMP support working better than Clang's OMP support.

Ubuntu had a small win with the Stockfish chess benchmark.
