    XFCE 720p and 1080p exists

    I would like XFCE, 720p and 1080p tests too

    1080p monitors are the best selled and they are set at 1080p or 720p - less tahn 1/2 pixels -

    Of course higher resolutions give benchamrk results, but main ones are 1080p and 720p that is what "normal" people use.

      I am using XFCE with Compiz on 1920x1080, so yes this is a real use case.

        For those using Ubuntu 12.04: Unity 5.16 is in precise-proposed now and will land as a stable update later this month.

          I have installed v304.43 nvidia proprietary drivers in Kubuntu 12.04 and I've had problems with the "Xorg" process that took excessive consumption of RAM (about 400MB) and a while after overload CPU usage (50%). Did anyone have a similar problem?.
          In fact just installed the "nvidia" driver to experience, because with "nouveau" everything works fine on my GT430. With nouveau Xorg does not exceed 35Mb of RAM and 25% CPU usage with KDE effects enabled.

            So, is this your first time installing a more featured program that also needs more RAM to do the job? Of course nouveau will use more RAM, it doesn't do half the stuff the proprietary driver does.
            I have the driver installed on Kubuntu 12.10beta, but didn't notice the memory usage; wasn't paying attention either. It seemed to work just as fine as the previous version.

              hey man why not test the fastest DE out there, lxde? lubuntu instead of kubuntu

              hell even xubuntu would do. gnome and kde are the slowest ones.


              THIS ---------> "Where the frack is Doom3 test? "

              Doom3 is the most relevant app out there that you can use natively both in windows and linux... who cares about xonotblabla
              he tested some articles ago all DE vs unity and except unity mostly all DE performed the same, why clutter the graphs? kde4.9+rfw/lxde/xfce/gnome shell/etc perform the, michael just picked of that pile the most common KDE.

              well xonotic is quite a good game and use many recent techiques and is the same codebase for any OS, so if you wanna test OS vs OS is better to stick to software you can prove that behave the same in any given plataform.

              if you payed atention to the article or even read it is a windows vs linux on nvidia blob not what gpu is faster, so i don't get what you whine??

              doom3 is not a relevant test for an OS vs OS, if you actually put 3 neurons to work togheter you will see the reasons like:

              * is closed source so you can't know for sure if it uses the same renderpath in both oses or any other typical dirty hack to gain more FPS that is not present within the other OS
              * many driver especially on windows have many hacks to boost performance that trigger depending on the .exe filename that won't necessarily trigger on linux
              * neither xonotic and especially doom3 will put any modern gpu to its knees
              * this is not a game benchmark LOL is a driver level comparison of engines between 2 OSes, if you want game bench there are many specialized sites out there, you know


              if you wanna reply do it technically i won't bother in answer stupid replys

                Ok, but also many times I have used software with many more features but better optimized. A good example is given here: KDE/KWin vs GNOME+Unity

                I think you wanted to say "less". Anyway that's not the point. There is a difference between "more" use of resources and "excessive" usage of resources. The v304.43 "nvidia" drivers make my system slow and heavy, and after a while it is completely unusable. That is, there is something that is not working well.
                For clarification I say that in other versions of Kubuntu I had used different versions of proprietary "nvidia" drivers without problems. I asked that to know if it was a problem that only happened to me with that drivers version.
                Regards.

                  im not sure but it happended before so its possible, go to nvnews maybe there is faster to find an answer.

                  this kind of post will wake and supercharge every nvidia troll in phoronix[they are legion] cuz for them nvidia blob is the most absolute and pure form of perfection and only those seduced by the devil[AMD] will dare to propose the holy blob can fail hence starting the next troll holy shitstorm on phoronix

                    I'm still waiting for the test with a real desktop for perfomance. XFCE, LXDE...

                      Hahaha. Anyway I've been using ATI for many years in GNU/Linux, and it is a headache. With nVidia I have suffered less than with ATI. I clarify that I am not a troll or a fanboy, just tell you my experience. Clearly nvidia is not perfect too.

                        A sign that maybe nvidia's support really is good, despite not being open sourced?

                          All tests are run at 1920x1080 so that just leaves 720p and XFCE. In a recent article it was shown that xfce had about the same performance of KDE, so KDE was used in this test. Also, I don't think that 1280x720 is a common resolution for computer screens. I never saw a computer screen that supported it.

                            This was a well done bench. Just posting that.

                              Is it just me but are the windows 7 tests using the same SDD? the graphic shows 56GB under the windows 7 columns.

                                Maybe in windows PTS only reports the partition size and Michael only used a 56GB partition for this test?
