Fedora 21 Through Fedora 23 Performance On An Apple MacBook Air
Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 29 November 2015 at 05:14 PM EST. 6 Comments
The latest Linux benchmarks I ran this weekend in welcoming the new Phoronix Premium subscribers participating in our Black Friday deal are some MacBook Air benchmarks on Fedora 21, Fedora 22, and Fedora 23.

From the same Apple MacBook Air with Intel Core i5 4250U Haswell CPU with HD Graphics 5000, 4GB of RAM, and 120GB SSD, benchmarks of clean installs of Fedora 21/22/23 were carried out plus with Fedora 23 having all stable updates as of this weekend.

These tests were mostly done for looking at Fedora's evolving performance. From a very different system, back in October I did Fedora 20 through Fedora 23 benchmarks. There is also this month's Antergos, Manjaro, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora & OpenSUSE Performance Showdown.

For the most part, there were no huge changes in performance.

The biggest improvements in performance were for some of the OpenGL graphics tests.

There are some slight changes in the compute tests and other areas.

You can see all of these Fedora 21/22/23 results via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
