    Xfce and Unity have the same color, same true about the other 2 red items.

      It is, but you have to use suspend fullscreen compositions option. I also tried this in Ubuntu and I had equal FPS in both environments using nVIDIA binary blob.

        I can second that. I thought KDE was meant to automatically suspend compositing, but I've found several times it was necessary to do so manually (Alt+Shift+F12).

          I wondering, did you notice he compare nVidia driver running on $470 GPU with Catalyst driver running on $180 GPU?

            What's wrong with a nice rainbow-colored chart? Or at least *easy* to distinguish colors? These charts are very difficult to read, they only say "have a closer look at kwin".

              yeah.. really.. especially considering AMD card costs ~160$, Intel graphics are integrated in CPU, and GTX is just a high-end card for ~500$

                lol.

                still though, i would buy an nvidia card over AMD every single time (of similar costing cards). ~ no having to screw around with AMD's crappy blob or their somewhat poor support compared to nvidia's blob.

                    Did you notice radeon reach 90% of catalyst performance for Xonotic fullhd details low? This is amazing - first decent game without bottlenecks at good raw performance!

                      Very interesting results. I was expecting the performance of all non-compositing window managers to be the same, and it clearly isn't for AMD hardware with both the closed and open-source drivers.

                      Does anyone have a clue why?
