First up are some synthetic memory benchmarks via the popular Stream program.

To much surprise, Windows 10 tended to be at the top of the pact when testing the Stream Linux binary via the Ubuntu user-space environment on Build 14316. Though Stream is a very basic test, so let's continue on.

Via the more-demanding Fhourstones benchmark, Windows 10 was now in last place but not by a wide margin at all. Windows 10 with this Ubuntu user-space was actually quite competitive with Ubuntu 14.04 and the other Linux distributions in computational performance.

John The Ripper performed close as well when using this Ubuntu user-space on Windows 10.

With the x264 video encoding benchmark, when running under Ubuntu Bash, Windows 10 came in first but it was by a very narrow finish.
