Linux v Windows: Which is FASTER? - Software Drag Racing!


Retired Microsoft operating system developer Davepl races Linux against Windows on the latest Threadripper CPUs to determine once and for all which system is actually fastest under maximum load.

Davepl develops a multicore prime sieve capable of solving the primes to a BILLION in under a second - or dozens of times per second on the "big" CPUs!

All the code can be found at in the PrimeCPP_PAR folder.

All profits from the sale of Dave's Garage mugs go to Autism Reseach:
