[Phoronix] Running Intel's Clear Linux On AMD EPYC Rome? Still Significant Performance Uplift Over Ubuntu

Source: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...me-clear&num=1

The current AMD EPYC 7742 2P benchmarking that is happening at Phoronix is an interesting Linux/BSD operating system performance comparison. That's in the works while so far are some Ubuntu and Clear Linux numbers. Yes, Intel's open-source Clear Linux platform does run fine generally on AMD hardware -- including the new AMD "Rome" processors -- and generally does still run damn fast. Here is a look at Clear Linux on this 128 core / 256 thread server with Clear Linux against Ubuntu 19.04 as well as the upcoming Ubuntu 19.10.

Also applies to R9 3900X , https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...-distros&num=8

For first place finishes, Clear Linux came out in first place 37% of the time. On most Intel systems meanwhile we commonly see Clear Linux lead by ~60%+, but still this Intel-optimized Linux distribution performs very strongly on AMD Zen 2. Also keep in mind during this testing that Clear Linux had to be tested with the Corsair Force MP500 while all other Linux distributions were tested with the newer (and faster) MP600 but Clear not currently working with that newer driver due to its power management adjustments. Debian 10.0 came in second with first place finishes 16% of the time and openSUSE Tumbleweed winning 11% of the time,
