OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 Performance Benchmarks Against Other Linux/BSD Distributions
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 21 August 2016 at 10:52 AM EDT. 5 Comments
OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 was released last week and since then many Phoronix readers have inquired about benchmarks of it since it's the first major GNU/Linux distribution using the LLVM Clang compiler by default over GCC.

Thus in continuing my recent BSD and Linux OS performance comparison, here are results of OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 out-of-the-box compared to many other distributions using the same Xeon Skylake hardware platform.

But as you can quickly see from that overview table, OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 didn't win any of the tests but did lose four of the tests. GCC is still packaged and available on OpenMandriva Lx for those wishing to use it over Clang. If you want to dig into the data more, see this result file.
