For the Stockfish chess benchmark there wasn't much change in performance with Ubuntu still running around 13% faster for this highly threaded benchmark.

XZ and Zstd file compression was a bit faster too on the new Windows 10 update, but still no match to Ubuntu.

With the single-threaded FLAC audio encoding benchmark is another case showing the single-threaded Windows 10 performance can at least meet or exceed Linux.

With the case of FFmpeg, it performed better on Windows than Linux for the Threadripper 2990WX box.

The OpenMP-threaded M-Queens was another rare case of a multi-threaded benchmark performing similarly under Windows and Linux.
