"We were using Arch Linux 2009.08 (x86_64) with the Linux 2.6.30 kernel, GNOME 2.26, X Server 1.6.3, the NVIDIA 185.18.31 display driver, GCC 4.4.1, and an EXT4 file-system. In comparison, with our Ubuntu 9.04 (x86_64) tests were the Linux 2.6.28 kernel, GNOME 2.26.1, X Server 1.6.0, NVIDIA 185.18.31, GCC 4.3.3, and an EXT3 file-system. Our test system was an ASRock NetTop ION 330, which packs an Intel Atom 330 CPU, an ASRock AMCP7A-ION (NVIDIA MCP79) motherboard with GeForce 9400M graphics, and 2GB of DDR2 memory.

"The benchmarks we ran for this quick comparison were World of Padman, Apache Benchmark, Ogg Encoding, timed HMMer Search, Threaded I/O Tester, PostMark, Dbench, GraphicsMagick, dcraw, and SQLite. With this testing we are just providing a quick overview of how -- in general -- Arch Linux compares to Ubuntu. If you would like to compare the performance of Arch Linux to other distributions or look at the performance in more detail, try out the Phoronix Test Suite."
