Good evening All,

After having messed around a bunch with some GT 1030s and a GTX 1050 on both Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10, running with the same app_config, on the same hardware under the same conditions I have discovered some dramatic runtime differences for the GFN tasks.

GFN-13 on GT 1030 (time per task, 3 tasks at a time)
Ubuntu: 10 seconds
Windows: 15 seconds
Result: 50% more throughput on Ubuntu

GFN-13 on GTX 1050 (time per task, 4 tasks at a time)
Ubuntu: 8 seconds
Windows: 12 seconds
Result: 50% more throughput on Ubuntu

GFN-14 on GT 1030 (time per task, 3 tasks at a time)
Ubuntu: 38 seconds
Windows: 50 seconds
Result: 32% more throughput on Ubuntu

GFN-14 on GTX 1050 (time per task, 4 tasks at a time)
Ubuntu: 18 seconds
Windows: 25 seconds
Result: 39% more throughput on Ubuntu

GFN-15 on GT 1030 (time per task, 1 task at a time)
Ubuntu: 145 seconds
Windows: 158 seconds
Result: 9% more throughput on Ubuntu

GFN-15 on GTX 1050 (time per task, 1 task at a time*)
Ubuntu: 93 seconds
Windows: 102 seconds
Result: 10% more throughput on Ubuntu

*there was only a single task tested for GFN-15 on Ubuntu with the GTX 1050 while running just one task, but it had super high CPU usage, so I doubled it to 2 concurrent tasks, then 4, and time per task stayed the same.

While this information may apply just to me, if anyone is thinking of throwing some GPUs at Stream's server, it may be worth the switch to Ubuntu to do so.

That's impressive, dual boot is in order so its seems.

Thanks for that.
