# Discrepency between Windows and Linux versions

Firstable thanks to all, this is a great software that I like to use when I switch components on my computer.

Two questions:

1.
Is it normal for the same computer to score differently under Linux and Windows? My linux benchmark constantly scored roughly 10% higher than Windows 10 benchmark using the same dual boot computer.

2.
Recently I tested the same system with overclocked RAM. However, this time the memory bandwidth under Windows 10 is 10% higher than that reported under Linux using geekbench4 software. The linux version didnt report much increase after the overclock, but Windows reported 10% increase in bandwidth. Whats causing this discrepency ?

Hi crunsoft,

Thanks for posting. Are you able to provide links to the benchmark results you are getting?

Thanks,

Hi johncho,

Thanks for posting the results. It is possible for the operating system to affect the result of a benchmark slightly.

Your power plan could also play a factor. When you ran the benchmark on Windows, the power plan was set to "Balanced". Could you try setting it to "Performance" and then running the benchmark again?

Warm regards,

Hi,
Balanced and Performance power plan in Window didnt make any difference in scoring results.
