That's an interesting result. They ran the tests on the very lovely, and very expensive, System76 Thelio Major with:

 

CPU: 3990X

RAM: 4 x 32GB DDR4-3000 memory

GPU: Dual Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics cards

Motherboard: Gigabyte-rebranded-System76 motherboard.

 

And also, AMD themselves recommend Clear Linux for top performance.
