Michael Larabel of Phoronix tests various FreeBSD versions, DragonFlyBSD, and Linuxes on the latest AMD Threadripper 2990wx processor. Benchmarks such as compression, OpenSSL signing, GraphicsMagick, and Prime Number Generation were done. You may view the detailed report at the link below.
The past two weeks I have been delivering a great deal of AMD Threadripper 2990WX benchmarks on Linux as well as some against Windows and Windows Server. But recently I got around to trying out some of the BSD operating systems on this 32-core / 64-thread processor to see how they would run and to see whether they would have similar scaling issues or not like we’ve seen on the Windows side against Linux. In this article are FreeBSD and DragonFlyBSD benchmarks with the X399 + 2990WX compared to a few Linux distributions.
