Continuing on from yesterday's Linux 4.4 To 4.7 - EXT4 vs. F2FS vs. Btrfs Benchmarks comparison, here is a wider look at mainline file-systems on the Linux 4.7. File-systems tested on the NVMe SSD included Btrfs, EXT4, F2FS, XFS, and NTFS.

Each of the five file-systems were tested on the same NVM Express SSD from the Linux 4.7.0 mainline kernel and using the stock mount options. The NTFS support was powered by FUSE. For a future article will be a look at non-mainlined file-systems, including ZFS On Linux.

So for those that wanted to see XFS and NTFS in yesterday's comparison, here are the latest numbers from the current Linux 4.7 stable kernel.
