  • I used geekbench 5. My CPU is AMD Ryzen 5 5500U. I tested a few prebuild kernels and custom compiled the fastest one.

    prebuild linux kernel:

    • singlethread: 1170
    • multithread score: 4604

    prebuild linux-zen kernel:

    • singlethread: 1156
    • multithread score: 4593

    prebuild linux-xanmod kernel:

    • singlethread: 1164
    • multithread score: 4594

    prebuild linux-hardened kernel:

    • singlethread: 1156
    • multithread score: 4841

    custom linux-hardened kernel:

    On laptop with Ryzen 5 5500U (12 threads) it takes 50 minutes and on desktop with Ryzen 7 3700X (16 threads) it takes 20 minutes. I use all threads to compile the kernel.

    It compiles way waster with Gentoo, because it has minimal config. I used the default config from Arch repos and modified it. It’s full of unneeded drivers, but I’m scared of disabling them. I already disabled wrong drivers a few times and had to use different kernel to boot.
