With SQLite there was a significant jump from 12.04 to 14.04, that aside from kernel upgrades transitioned from the CFQ I/O scheduler to deadline, though with 18.04 it's transitioned back to CFQ. Ubuntu 18.04 does deliver slightly better performance than 16.04 and the earlier releases.

With FIO random reads, this Intel Sandy Bridge laptop backed by a solid-state drive hasn't seen much difference when it comes to random reads...

Though sequential reads are up slightly on the updated 16.04 and 18.04 releases.

While sequential writes are largely in line with past Ubuntu LTS releases.

FS-Mark is indicating a small regression compared to 16.04, which may be partially attributed to the Spectre/Meltdown mitigation work.
