"The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X is performing faster on
Linux than Microsoft Windows 10. When carrying out more than 80
different tests on Windows 10 compared to five Linux distributions,
Windows 10 was beat out by the open-source competition. However, the
performance loss for Windows isn't as dramatic as we have seen out of
earlier generations of Ryzen Threadripper HEDT workstations. Here are
those benchmarks of Windows 10 compared to Ubuntu 19.10, CentOS 8, Clear
Linux, Fedora Workstation 31, and openSUSE Tumbleweed."
