Here s my Xanmod LTS-RT release version ;

cat /proc/version
Linux version 5.10.131-rt72-xanmod1 (root@mascote) (gcc-12 (Debian 12.1.0-7) 12.1.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils for Debian) 2.38.90.20220713) #0~git20220805.05dbafe SMP PREEMPT_RT Fri Aug 5 23:27:53 UTC 202

The performance improvement will be on new AMD/Intel chips. If you have a fairly old machine, you won’t notice any changes.

My latest laptop ( Intel ) which is a year old seems to run the same as yesterdays kernel but it isn’t a $5000. dollar laptop either.

Yeah, most of the new kernel updates these days are for bug fixes and new hw support. If you want some performance improvement, maybe spend some time on the file systems you’re using, services that you bring up, software (including DE/WM) you’re running, etc.
