Ran some benchmarks and wanted to share.
Compared Windows 10 vs Garuda Linux benchmarks using Geekbench 5. I get slightly better single-core performance in Linux (1332 vs 1212), slightly lower multi-core performance (5748 vs 5842), but HUGE boost in Linux with the Turbo button (6406 vs 6091).
It's the Turbo mode that's really surprising me.
Vulkan test varies a lot from run to run but gives about 61000 in Linux vs 58000 in Windows.
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10750H CPU @ 2.60GHz
GeoForce GTX 2060
Only test that ran slightly lower in Linux is the multi-core test, which is also the most important. Error margin perhaps? I'll run it again.
Ran twice more, multi-core 5926 and 6009 (without Turbo).
I'm happy to say that Garuda beats Windows in performance across the board according to Geekbench! By a noticeable margin.
