    Phoronix: The Performance Impact Of Fedora 19 Updates

    With Fedora more liberally pushing down package updates compared to Ubuntu Linux and other fixed-release distributions, how has the performance evolved since the release of "Schrödinger's Cat" in early July? Here's some benchmarks showing how the Fedora 19 performance has evolved with a newer kernel and other changes...

        Only if your video drivers suck. (AMD)

          Nvidia's GPU's are faster on Linux then Windows even on the old shitty Xorg server

            On the AMD driver bashing note:

            I Have been using a HD6950 without issues using the Catalyst Drivers, With this I was able to Play Various Windows Games via Wine and Native without an difference in end user experience compared to the Binary Nvidia Blob (GTX660)
            Please think before posting and just don't just tag along with the crowd. Dig in and test yourselves. IF you do have issues share and let us all work together to resolve them

            I will also admit that the Catalyst Installer has been a lot more user friendly and first time successful than the Nvidia's installer time and time again on Debian Testing.

            What have you guys experienced?

              The crowd? I'd say what's widely known http://askubuntu.com/questions/17863...raphics-driver The 'legacy' chipset bollocks, the requirement of Xorg 1.13 or older bollocks. We could go on.

              On the subject - does a regular user stand a chance in noticing such performance changes?

                Well as you can see there is a small across-the-board advantage for updating your cat. I really like this method of small constant improvement in Linux.

                But the actual performance difference here is so small that i really doubt anyone can notice.
