Linux Still Yields Better Multi-Threaded Performance On AMD Threadripper Against Windows 10 May 2019 Update

The libjpeg-turbo benchmark saw Windows 10 performing nearly at pace to Ubuntu Linux.

Darktable was performing much better on Windows than Linux though that may be due to other software differences.

In the multi-threaded V-RAY renderer, Ubuntu had around a 16% advantage over Windows 10.

Ubuntu was performing much better with IndigoBench as well on Threadripper compared to Windows.

The Blender renderer also sided with Linux for the greatest performance on this Zen+ high-end desktop.

Windows 10 Version 1903 is offering some minor performance advantages over Windows 10 Version 1809, but in multi-threaded workloads particularly (Ubuntu) Linux continues offering much better performance than Windows. I'm in the process still of running similar tests on the Intel side for seeing if the performance improvements with 1903 are generic or AMD/Zen specific, among other forthcoming benchmarks.
