    Phoronix: Windows 8.1 vs. Linux Benchmark Results Are Coming

    Coming as soon as later today will be benchmark results comparing the performance of Microsoft Windows 8.1 against Linux in various graphics-focused workloads for Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA hardware...

      This also reminds me of how every once in a while, there's an ad for MS products on this website.

        Great. It would be awsome Linux catalyst vs Linux free driver (plus dpm (with the flag set in performance) + mesa 10.0) vs Windows 8.1. Afterall, this does not happen every day. It is important to know than W8.1 brings improvements for AMD cards.

          Excellent news. Where do you get the time to do all those tests?

            Working generally all day (12~14+ hours) and doing so 7 days a week, plus the automated support of the Phoronix Test Suite is a big factor in being able to get tests done properly and accurately and reproducible.

                Give us CPU comparisons!
                Audio-video encoding, rendering etc...

                      GPU comparison using Steam games, like Team Fortress 2.

                        Disk-performance

                        Hi Michael,

                        I want to thank you for the effort you put into the work you post here!
                        Following up on your article of kernel 3.12 disk performance, some benchmarks comparing disk transaction performance would be nice.
                        I don't know how many cross-platform tools there are for doing such a comparison though.

                          It would probably be very interesting add Mavericks (Os X 10.9) to the equation, since it just got released and for free.

                          Apparently, Apple managed to improve power usage, as also optimize performances..

                            Except I don't have any worthwhile AMD or NVIDIA hardware on OS X systems for benchmarks.

                              Not sure if illegal or not, but in theory you could easily install Mavericks on a PC with an Intel CPU, just for the sake of making the tests
