Coreprio Can Help AMD Threadripper Windows Performance, But Linux Still Leading Performance Race

With IndigoBench, Windows Server 2019 was oddly performing quite poorly while Windows 10 was faster than Linux for this proprietary software.

With Blender 3D modeling benchmarks, the NUMA Dissociater mode of Coreprio certainly helped with improved CPU rendering performance. However, Ubuntu 18.10 still had better performance than the tweaked Windows 10 setup. Windows Server 2019 performance here was similar to Windows 10.

Ubuntu also maintained a slight lead over Windows with the V-RAY renderer on the CPU too while the CorePrio software did appear to help out slightly.

The CorePrio utility did help improve the Threadripper 2990WX performance on Windows in a number of the benchmarks carried out. However, there were also some performance regressions. Separately, it was also interesting to see the Windows Server 2019 performance on AMD Threadripper 2 hardware. Windows Server 2019 did offer measurably better performance than Windows 10 in a few of the benchmarks, but it wasn't across the board gains and still not competing with the Ubuntu Linux performance.
