Ubuntu does remain faster at code compilation due to Clear Linux shipping with various CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS by default to optimize the performance of the generated binary at the cost of slower out-of-the-box compile times.

The latest Clear Linux build is running the C-Ray ray-tracer a few seconds faster than it did last year or currently on Ubuntu.

With encoding benchmarks, Clear Linux 19950 is slightly faster than where it was with Clear Linux 12410.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is booting slower than Ubuntu 16.10 at least according to systemd metrics, likely due to the changes that occurred with Ubuntu 17.10 in switching to GNOME from Unity. Clear Linux meanwhile is booting faster now at the end of 2017 than 2016.

Even as the Linux kernel has gotten larger, Clear Linux 19950 is handling the kernel booting stage slightly quicker than last year while Ubuntu regressed. Ubuntu's kernel takes approximately one second longer than Clear.

Firmware initialization is a half-second quicker with the newer Clear Linux.
