    Default Fedora 7 to 10 Benchmarks

    Phoronix: Fedora 7 to 10 Benchmarks

    Earlier this week we published benchmarks of all Ubuntu releases from 7.04 to the release candidate and had found the performance degraded with time, at least with the test system we used. As part of our testing to explore this issue, we had repeated many of the same tests on Fedora with all of their releases going back to Fedora 7. Has Fedora's desktop performance degraded too? Read the article to find out.

    Hot damn! Ubuntu 7.04 and 7.10 had some secret sauce. They were 2x faster than any other Fedora or Ubuntu made since.
    Did they forget to `apt-get install secretsauce' in newer versions of Ubuntu?

    This is indeed very very strange. Now I'm really interested in two things:
    1. What is the secret sauce?
    2. How did the other distro's do compared to 7.04 (e.g. Suse)?

    until then:
    the sauce is a lie
    the sauce is a lie
    the sauce is a lie

    What's wrong with audio encoding?? The Ubuntu 7.04 and 7.10 packages have SSE2/3/4 optimization enabled?

    Such a loss of speed is very important, it sound like a major bug.

    Can you do the same tests with the 64bit kernel (perhaps more optimization for newer processor than the 386 one)

    Maybe you should test the 64-bit systems, too, as they use other compiler flags - the "wav to mp3" test took 34s on a 2.6 Ghz Intel - 16s, the ogg one. Both on Fedora 9.

    Ubuntu 7.06/7.10 has some incredible results.

    Pretty weird indeed for Ubuntu 7.04/7.10 did better than all the Fedora releases and the Ubuntu 8.04 and the 8.10RC

    There has had to be some sort of optimization set in the Ubuntu 7.x releases...

    no offense michael, but those 7.04 test results look quite fishy to me. should a speed regression, that heavy, pass mostly unnoticed?

    Or the T60 in the test has some serious hardware problems. My Thinkpad R31 (P-3 1GHz, 512MB, Ubuntu 8.10) is only slightly slower than the T60 :

    Code:
           R31         T60
    LAME  133.07s    120.83s
    OGG   84.40s     69.81s
    FLAC  62.13s     56.19s
    Link to the complete results of the audio-encoding suite for my R31 :

    What where the file systems used in the tests? Also what mount option did the have?

    The tests with Ubuntu 7.04 are odd. Those packages have something different.

    Everything was left at their defaults.
