Fedora 16 vs. Ubuntu 11.10 Performance Benchmarks

Phoronix has pit Fedora 16 against Ubuntu 11.10 in a no-holds-barred-all-out-fight-to-the-death benchmark brawl.

This is a comparison of the 64-bit performance of Ubuntu 11.10 vs. Fedora 16 in an out-of-the-box configuration. When it comes to these benchmarks, what's worth noting is that Fedora 16 and Ubuntu 11.10 are both on GCC 4.6.x and the EXT4 file-system. Some of the important differences though is that Fedora 16 is on the Linux 3.1 kernel while Ubuntu 11.10 is on Linux 3.0 and Fedora 16 has a more recent (both user and kernel-space) graphics stack.
