ubuntu 20% faster than winblows

benchmark was open source

https://openbenchmarking.org/result/2404186-NE-FRAMEWORK98&sgm=1&sor&swl#results

With the Framework 16 laptop one of the performance pieces I've been meaning to carry out has been seeing out Linux performs against Microsoft Windows 11 for this AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS powered modular/upgradeable laptop.

The Framework 16 review unit as a reminder was configured with the 8-core / 16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS Zen 4 SoC with Radeon RX 7700S graphics, a 512GB SN810 NVMe SSD, MediaTek MT7922 WiFi, and a 2560 x 1600 display.

It was tested on Windows 11 and Ubuntu both. The same Framework 16 AMD laptop was used throughout all of the testing for looking at the out-of-the-box performance across Microsoft Windows 11, Ubuntu 23.10, and the near-final state of Ubuntu 24.04.

Out of 101 benchmarks carried out on all three operating systems with the Framework 16 laptop, Ubuntu 24.04 was the fastest in 67% of those tests, the prior Ubuntu 23.10 led in 22% (typically with slim margins to 24.04), and then Microsoft Windows 11 was the front-runner just 10% of the time... If taking the geomean of all 101 benchmark results, Ubuntu 23.10 was 16% faster than Microsoft Windows 11 while Ubuntu 24.04 enhanced the Ubuntu Linux performance by 3% to yield a 20% advantage over Windows 11 on this AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS laptop.

        usually 2x to 2.5x the time
        pretty known issue too

          More like 1.2x the time these days, unless you have severe brain damage and decided to spend your money on a laptop with an Nvidia GPU.

            maybe on your ancient troonypad where groups of transfolkx wasted hundreds of hours trying to make an optimized performance profile to improve the battery life from 30 minutes to 36 minutes for their 2 decade old machines
            anything somewhat new (7th gen and above) the difference is brutal
            >bbbut tinkertroony these five billion configs unique to your hardware and youll manage to improve it by .000000000001% !!!!!!!!!!111
            no thanks

            My (not Chinkpad) laptop is only about 4 years old, and I didn't touch a single config file for power management.
            Why do Wintoddlers pretend to know what they're talking about?

            I have a novideo laptop and my battery lasts longer on Arch than it used to when it still had W10

            Really? Then the situation has improved even more than I thought.

            I didn't do anything special to my distro either, like getting Optimus to work was a bit of a pain but everything else worked OOB so I didn't touch power settings or anything kek (I did disable screensaver and useless shit like that but I do that on all of my machines). I also need to disable wifi power saving or my wifi will cut all the time lmao, known issue on most MSI laptops apparently. I could probably save a bit more battery by running the screen @60Hz rather than native 120 too

            same basically, I bought mine early 2020

            I have a laptop with LMDE and my battery lasts about equally as long, because CPU is used less, but I also haven't optimized it for low power (apparently, there are apt packages you should install for longer battery time), so it evens out.
            It's enough.

            I'm on xfce
            I used to get around 3 to 3:10 on battery with light usage (min screen brightness, web browsing, watching israelitetube), now I get 4 hours and some minutes with the same usage
            yeah it's one of those thin laptops with a dedicated gpus in it (i5 9300H + 2060) so the battery inside is tiny and doesn't last long in any case, and it doesn't matter since I use it plugged 95% of the time, but heh, it's still a small improvement

            That's almost 133%, not insignificant.
            W10 is just taking too much resources doing things you don't need (or want) as a user.
            All things being equal, it will therefore always lose out.

    installing windows 11 is actually installing a vm running the OS. this has been confirmed: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/options-to-optimize-gaming-performance-in-windows-11-a255f612-2949-4373-a566-ff6f3f474613

    windows is slow and is the worst offender in terms of battery usage of any OS ever made, this is already proven
