A computer based on an Intel Alder Lake processor was tested on different operating systems. And it turned out that the system works the slowest in Windows 11. But the indicators in Linux turned out to be significantly higher.
Testing was carried out on a computer equipped with an Intel Core i9-12900K processor. Also in the configuration was an Asus ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WiFi motherboard, 32GB of DDR5-6000 RAM, a 500GB WD Black SN850 SSD, and an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card.
For testing, we used Windows 11 Pro, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with Linux 5.18 kernel and Intel Clear Linux (build 36580). During testing, more than a hundred tests were carried out, including graphics rendering, music and video transcoding, and other tasks. Some results look like this:
Clear Linux was the leader in 55 cases, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS in 19 cases, Windows 11 was in third place (16 results), and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with the Linux 5.18 kernel took 13 wins.
In general, Windows 11 was slower in most tests, although, of course, these are test benchmarks and not real everyday workloads. All results are available here.
