    Phoronix: OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Delivers Some Performance Improvements

    For some workloads, the recently-released Apple OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" operating system is faster than its predecessor, OS X 10.8 "Lion". Here are some comparative benchmarks from the Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display and Intel Ivy Bridge 2.3GHz Core i7 processor.

    I want to see Ubuntu 12.04 LTS thrown into the mix.

    Would be nice see OS X 10.8 vs Ubuntu 12.10 vs Windows 8 shootout!

      This is a head-scratcher, isn't it? "Linux hardware reviews, Benchmarking, and Gaming", or "My Latest Apple Toy" ?

        On what hardware? Michael's already said there's a few problems running linux on the macbook. And why does it make a difference anyway?

          On page one, the comparison chart....

          The 10.7 mbp has 1024mb VRAM and the 10.8 mbp has 512mb VRAM.

          sup wit that? Did you buy two?

              *facepalm* You're seriously complaining? Really, this article is a problem to you? My god some people on these forums just have nothing better to do than to complain about content that is FREE TO VIEW and completely OPTIONAL; you are under no obligation to view it. He has the hardware, he has the OS, he has the tools, and he has the time. Why not benchmark it? So what if it isn't open source? Its not like he filled the entire front page of Apple stuff. That's like saying somone buys a flatbed truck for construction purposes but you decide to bitch at owner for going off-roading with it because that wasn't the intended use for it.

                Exactly. That's why I keep my adblock turned on. I don't care about apple crap.

                  Then why'd you read and comment on the article?

                      And you (or them anyway) are proud of that? The article isn't bad, its fine - just not open source related. I really don't see the big deal when this happens every once in a while.

                        I'm surprised so many of you are not so creative and lose point of the article and just want to complain about Apple while not adding any value.... I clearly laid out the OpenBenchmarking.org ID in the article and basically invited you guys to run some comparative benchmarks on your own hardware. I thought by now the discussion would have at least turned to remarks by independent users running tests how their $1000 Linux PC notebook is beating a $2100 rMBP or some discussions at least a bit more technical.

                          You need an Apple blog for this stuff, because nobody running Linux gives a rats ass about it.

                            How another operating system on another hardware compares is useless information.
                            I would like to see you benchmark Linux on the same hardware.

                              As I said in the articles, Linux doesn't run well at all on the hardware right now. It's more or less a broken mess.
