Fedora 21 vs. Ubuntu 14.10 Development Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 2 October 2014 at 03:04 PM EDT. 1 Comment
With the very latest development packages for Ubuntu 14.10 and Fedora 21, here's some new Linux benchmark results when running from the Core i7 5960X platform and using the new MSI X99S SLI PLUS.

The MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard played well with both Ubuntu 14.10 and Fedora 21 that are powered by the modern Linux 3.16 kernel. As a quick comparison just for kicks I ran some benchmarks using all of the same hardware and the stock settings for each of F21 and Ubuntu Utopic on this system with the latest packages as of yesterday~today.

You can find these benchmark results via 1410025-LI-FEDORAUBU02 on OpenBenchmarking.org.

It's worth noting though that Fedora 21 during development stages enable a lot more debug options than Ubuntu Linux, which can lead to lower performance... However, overall Fedora 21 still had a nice showing and competed against the Utopic Unicorn. As each distribution is closer to its respective release will be plenty more benchmarks with a diverse selection of hardware on Phoronix. If you wish to run your own Linux distribution performance benchmarks you can easily do so with the open-source Phoronix Test Suite automated benchmarking system.
