PC-BSD 8.0 was released last week and we took this opportunity to deliver a fresh set of *BSD benchmarks. In this article we have benchmarks of PC-BSD 8.0 x64 against Kubuntu 9.10 x86_64.
Starting our PC-BSD vs. Kubuntu benchmarking with LAME MP3 encoding, the Canonical OS came out slightly ahead of PC-BSD, but not by a very sizable margin.
PC-BSD 8.0 actually beat out Kubuntu 9.10 when it came to the 7-Zip compression performance by 14%.
Compressing a 2GB test file was much quicker under Kubuntu 9.10 with the EXT4 file-system than PC-BSD 8.0 with UFS.
