AMD Threadripper 25% faster on Ubuntu than on Windows

AMD Threadripper

If you own a AMD Threadripper, and you also use Linux, you are in luck. And it has been shown in a series of benchmarks that this beast of processing yields an average of 25% more in Ubuntu than in Windows in the synthetic tests it has undergone, which is fantastic news.

Specifically, for the tests, an AMD Threadripper 3990X with 64 cores and 128 threads was used. Regarding the tests, the suite of benchmarks has been used Phoronix Test Suite from which I already commented here. Thanks to it, it has been possible to compare both platforms with various performance tests, since it is a code that adapts to different operating systems (something that does not happen with other tools that are not available natively on both systems to compare).

Thanks to these Phoronix tests, it was possible to evaluate this AMD Threadripper 3990x equipped with 128GB of DDR4 RAM and an AMD Radeon RX 5700XT graphics card. Regarding the operating system, the version has been specifically chosen Ubuntu 21.04 and Windows 10, both 64-bit.

The normal thing would be that in some tests one operating system wins and that in others another one wins, balancing the results. And even if an operating system wins in most tests, the differences are minimal, as is often the case in other comparisons made in the past. On the other hand, that has not been the case here, and Ubuntu wins with an average of 25% performance over Windows, which is outrageous ...

Ultimately, Ubuntu 21.04 beat Windows 10 in 82% of the 79 tests performed. That hints that Canonical's system is a very good option when it comes to HEDT (High-End Desktop) systems.
