With the CPU-based TTSIOD phong renderer, Clear Linux had a narrow but measurable victory over the nine other distributions while Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS this time was the slowest. Fedora, Solus, and Void Linux were other competitive performers in this benchmark.

With x264 video encoding, Clear Linux once again came out in front... Yes, Intel's Linux distribution on AMD hardware. Ubuntu 16.04.3 and 17.10 as well as Antergos 18.1-Rolling were notably slower than the others.

The ebizzy benchmark aims to resemble web-server workloads. On the Ryzen 7 1800X box, Antergos 18.1 had a narrow path to victory. The results on the Threadripper 1950X system were quite close among most of the distributions tested, but Clear Linux attained another win. Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS was noticeably slower on both systems than the others tested.

When it came to measuring the time needed to compile a Linux x86_64 default configuration kernel, CentOS, Clear Linux, and Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS were all nearly tied for first while Void Linux was the slowest.
