7-Way Linux Distribution Comparison For Summer 2016
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 23 June 2016. Page 5 of 5. 32 Comments

Antergos and Clear Linux were competing for first place with the Redis benchmarks followed closely by Debian and Ubuntu.

Now to sum things up, if taking a look at the overall result view:

While the results were mixed, we can see Clear Linux easily has the most green (wins) while Scientific Linux 7.2 had the most red (losses). This latest round of results isn't too surprising compared to our other recent comparisons. Scientific Linux 7.2 tends to be slower than other modern non-LTS/enterprise distributions due to the older kernel, older GCC compiler, and more conservative settings. Meanwhile, Clear Linux continues to drive on the performance front with new innovations, aggressive defaults, and other improvements done by the team at Intel's Open-Source Technology Center.
