According to a new report by Phoronix, the Linux 5.16 kernel came with performance increases on laptops with AMD’s Ryzen processors and Radeon integrated graphics. Most tests show 5-14% better performance than previous Linux kernels, including Linux 5.16, 5.15 and 5.11.

Gravity Mark, Legacy, GLmark2 and many more tests were done on two different laptops. When running GLmark 2 and Xonotic tesdollars on one of the laptops equipped with Ryzen 5 5500U (Zen 2), the results showed a 14% performance difference compared to Linux 5.16. In two different tests, such as Xonotic and Unvanquished, a significant performance increase of 10-11% emerged.

Phoronix did further testing on another laptop equipped with the Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U (Zen 3), and the results are similar to the system with the Ryzen 5 5500U. Some tesdollarser like RealSR-NCNN and Waifu2x-NCNN did not take advantage of the new Linux kernel. However, small performance gains have been achieved in some scenarios and significant performance gains in others.

Some of the great performance results that Linux 5.16 provides are quite surprising. At the end of the day, it’s good to see extra performance gains for AMD Ryzen-based laptops. So for anyone running a Linux operating system and a Ryzen-equipped laptop, upgrading to Linux 5.16 may be a good option.
