Tests show great performance of "Ubuntu on Windows"

The "Linux novelty" within Windows 10 has already caught the eye of those interested in measuring application performance; after all, there's no use having the tool if it doesn't behave well, does it? Let's talk about the benchmarks of "Ubuntu on Windows".

Ubuntu on Windows

The folks at Phoronix have made some benchmarks to ascertain the power of "Ubuntu on Windows" and show how efficient or otherwise it could be, and the results have been very surprisingly and positively surprising.

Test Summary

You can see all the tests with the graphs in the link at the end of this article, we will cover here in general what we could see in the benchmarks.

Basically, we compared Windows 10 with Bash, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 Beta and Intel ClearOS (a Linux distro from the company), although there are still bugs in Bash for Windows, like some functions that just didn't work correctly, as Aprgio Simes showed on this videoAfter a bit of work, as the folks at Phoronix reported, everything was set up correctly.

The hardware used in the tests was as follows:

– Intel Xeon E3-1280 v5 Skylake (3.7GHz base, 4.0GHz turbo)

– 16GB of RAM

– 120GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD,

– Radeon R9 290 (even if no graphic tests have been done)

– board me MSI C236A Workstation

Overall Windows 10 did well, winning in some comparisons and losing in others, just "losing the wash," if one might say so, when they crashed on these that somehow involved the file system, aside from that. The result was satisfactory, which shows that the port was successfully built, but also shows that the project has yet to evolve to perform better.

See you next time!
