Michael Larabel from Phoronix tests out FreeBSD 12.1 on one of AMD’s latest Ryzen processors, the Threadripper 3970X. He tests out some benchmarks against Windows and Linux Machines with the Phoronix Test Suite, consisting of Golang benchmarks, DaCapo, Renaissance, GraphicsMagick, and some others. Check out the full report at the link below.
