    Phoronix: XMir Performance Measured On Ubuntu 13.10

    While the Ubuntu 13.10 desktop isn't using Mir/XMir by default, the packages are available within the archive for those wanting to test out the next-generation display server for Ubuntu. To see how the 2D/3D performance is when running under XMir with the Unity System Compositor, I ran some new benchmarks using this week's Ubuntu 13.10 release.

    So

    So Micheal, can you finally shut up your fuc*ing mouth and tell us Xmir is good without telling us Xwayland is extraordinary good compared to Xmir?! We already know that you are a Wayland fan, but you are really obsessive! Sorry for that, but i love truth. Cause i think love is truth an truth is love. Take care!

        i want to see some Xwayland marks using the new Patch Set's i think it will beat Xorg also Mir is a dead project on the Linux desktop why do you think Mark is acting like he is people only act like this when facing failure

          XMir is good enough now, what is still a poor idea is using it to run the whole desktop, even though the performance hit is negligible, it's pointless. Most of my complains against Canonical not even caring about their users will disappear the moment they drop that idea.

            did he change the article, in the current version at least you dont find the word wayland or xwayland?

            Is it possible that you are a bit sick. Fanboism syndrom or something?

                  Right now with SteamOS around the corner, Xmir isn't a good thing for Linux. Maybe down the road when it is equal to wayland in performance, but right now wayland is better. Micheal doesn't need to tell anyone this cause the benchmarks speak for themselves.

                    Awesome.

                    Now do these same tests on a mid-range computer made 3-4 years ago that doesn't have the latest and greatest hardware and that doesn't have everything compiled and tuned for performance. Then go ahead and try to tell me the difference is "negligible". $50 says the performance hit is going to be MUCH, MUCH more noticeable...

                      I've been testing XMir on my PC built in 2008 and the performance hit is also negligible. Here are the specs of that PC:

                      AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ 2
                      GeForce 9600 GT
                      6 GB RAM DDR2

                      In Unigine Heaven 3.0 running at Medium settings and fullscreen 1920x1080 XMir was slower than X server by literally 0.3 FPS and it had 9 points less. There is also that thing with GtkPerf being much faster on XMir than on X server with this PC. On XMir I get total time for all tests in the range of 8.30 to 9.10 seconds while on X this times go from 9.60 to 10.90 seconds.

                        Bestia is tearing vanished with xMir? With Xorg tearing is EVERYWHERE! (Try to run a "tearing test" video on Youtube if you can please)

                          I didn't see tearing in Unity when running on X server. XMir unfortunately has tearing on Nouveau drivers.

                          Nouevau doesn't have the precise vBlank in NV50 up to NVC0 and newer. Maarten Lankhorst from Canonical made a patch for that but it turned out that while it resolved problems on XMir it also halved the FPS on X server.

                            I have tearing with nvidia drivers on Ubuntu (GTX 460) but not much possiby because there is compiz there.

                            In the other hand in my legacy pc (ATi 2600 PRO) I run Xubuntu (which doesn't have compiz) and tearing is everywhere and I mean it!

                            Mir should fix those kind of problems. Thats why I am asking.
