Is The Gentoo-Based Calculate Linux Faster Than Other Distributions?

Calculate Linux 15 has the Linux 3.18 kernel, KDE 4.14.12, Mesa 10.3.7, GCC 4.8.5, LLVM 3.5.0, and X.Org Server 1.16.4 by default on an EXT4 file-system. Calculate Linux 15 was tested on the same Intel Haswell Xeon + AMD FirePro system as used in the other Linux distributions, of course.
