CachyOS is committed to delivering high-performance computing to its users. Our installer detects the microarchitecture of your machine and uses optimized packages for x86-64-v3 systems, resulting in a significant performance improvement of more than 10%.
All packages in CachyOS are compiled with Link Time Optimization (LTO) and optimized for the x86-64-v3 microarchitecture. We are constantly working on expanding our repositories and adding a x86-64-v4 repository which will be filled over time. The GCC compiler is optimized using Profile Guided Optimization (PGO) and LTO, and certain packages are further optimized with BOLT, a post-link optimizer.
CachyOS comes with several performance enhancements. These enhancements are designed to improve the overall user experience. These include
At CachyOS, we take security very seriously. That is why our software includes the following security features:
Ananicy-Cpp is a shell daemon that manages process IO and CPU priorities with community-driven rulesets for popular applications. This tool is primarily designed for desktop usage and is a complete rewrite of the original Ananicy in C++, providing lower CPU and memory usage. Additionally, Latency_nice has recently been included to help the scheduler make decisions about which tasks receive lower or higher latency.
