First up was the basic SQLite embedded database benchmark for getting an idea of the rough I/O impact between distributions. Starting things off, Intel's Clear Linux distribution was the fastest on both Ryzen systems while CentOS 7 and Solus 3 were the slowest in this case.

With CompileBench, Clear Linux was the fastest while CentOS 7 and Void Linux tended to be the slowest. Besides Clear Linux pulling in various performance optimizations and extra patches, as noted earlier, it did recently switch to using the Kyber I/O scheduler rather than no I/O scheduler for NVMe storage. Kyber is the recently mainlined I/O scheduler originally developed at Facebook.
