Linux (Ubuntu) has once again beaten Windows 11 and this time by a reasonably large margin. The comparisons on this occasion were done on AMD's 3D V-cache based Ryzen 7 5800X3D octa-core CPU.
When Alder Lake was announced last year, Microsoft and Intel touted the special Windows 11 optimization it came with. However, the performance lead is slowly fading away against Ubuntu and Linux.
The Linux kernel version 5.19 could pack hefty gains over version 5.15 according to new tests done on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS against Windows 11 Pro. The comparisons were made on a Ryzen 6000 PRO mobile PC.
The latest comparison between Windows 11 and Linux shows the Microsoft OS struggling to hold its lead against the rival's distros. This is unlike last time, when Windows 11 was often better.
When Intel and Microsoft stated that the 12h Gen Alder Lake architecture is optimized for Windows 11, they probably didn't lie as suggested by benchmarks run on both platforms using a Core i9-12900K.
Ubuntu's upcoming 21.10 distro is far ahead of Windows 10 and 11 in performance in some of the applications as per a report. The performance is especially impressive in CPUs-intense workloads.
