I agree! that's why I say not as performant. Clear Linux and Gentoo both beat it in benchmarks, but it's by such a small margin you don't notice until doing things like rendering a picture of a BMW. I've been using Arch as my daily driver since sometime around 2010/2011 and it's been great performance-wise.
