Things are back to normal: Ubuntu 21.04 is faster than the latest build of Windows 10

Ubuntu 21.04 wins Windows with AMD Ryzen 9

A little less than a month ago we wrote an article motivated by another in which they claimed that Windows 10 was faster than Linux. The headline was misleading, as we explained in its day, because what Linux were they talking about? Linux is the kernel used by many operating systems, and the test was done on a computer that, among other things, used the Intel i9 processor and the Linux distribution was Canonical's last stable with a kernel that was still under development. Now they have done another test, but with Ubuntu 21.04 and the AMD Ryzen 9.

The first important detail is that this time a processor made by a company that gets along with Microsoft has not been used. In other words, Intel can make Windows look better in benchmarks than Ubuntu, but AMD is supposed to treat them all the same. The result? The tables have been turned and the winner is Ubuntu in the same percentage in which Windows 10 won in the previous test.

Windows 10 loses against Ubuntu 21.04 on a computer with AMD Ryzen 9

We would be being hypocritical if we did not give a piece of information: this time it was Windows 10 who has participated in a preview version, specifically Windows 10 Pro Build 21370, right now in the hands of "Insiders". In the other corner of the ring has been Ubuntu 21.04 with Linux 5.11, both operating system and kernel already in their stable versions.

In general computing, Ubuntu 21.04 has won in 63% of the tests, taking the rest Windows 10. The previous test gave the Microsoft system as the winner in 61% of the tests. You have all the details in the middle of Michael Larabel, which you can access from here!.

Personally, I would like to see a test without cheating or cardboard (without Intel, come on) with both operating systems in stable versions. Ubuntu would probably keep winning, and if not, how about Arch Linux? It is compared with the one compared, the user experience On modest computers, the one that doesn't make us wait many seconds for a program to open will always be better on Linux. Or that's my opinion.
