    64 bit does not help much, at max i saw a diff of 0.5 fps in the minimum fps. Too low to really gain something visable.

      My Windows install is a bit "fresher" than my Ubuntu install, since I rarely touch it these days. That could be causing the slow numbers. Also, on Ubuntu the demo does tend to run a little choppy at times while on W7 it's "smooth" for most of the time.

        This drop in performance seems to be only effecting the ATI cards. On Nvidia cards the performance is almost identical.

          Hi,

          I did some benchmarking

          Config:
          GTX 285 1GB
          QX9650 @ 3 GHz
          Archlinux 64bit

          Tested at:
          1024x768, window
          1280x720, window, 8xAA
          1280x1024, fullscreen, 8xAA
          1920x1200, fullscreen
          1920x1200, fullscreen, 2xAA
          1920x1200, fullscreen, 4xAA
          3840x1200, fullscreen

          Screenshots below:

            Not bad... much better than I expected.

              I tried to do apples to apples comparison. Dx10 in win7 x64 is faster and scores a higher score, but only due to peak fps. Avg fps is still slower and there is much more micro stutter in win7. Not to mention min fps in win7 is 6 fps for dx10 and dx 11.

                there is some problems right now particularly on the ATI/AMD side with this demanding Unigine demo. From the Radeon HD 5000 "Evergreen" graphics cards that we have tested, all that is displayed using the Catalyst 10.4 drivers found in Ubuntu 10.04 are psychedelic colors.
                So I filled a bug report about this and they say they are going to fix it "as soon as possible". We'll have to wait and see. But I'm quite surprised by this prompt response. I wonder if the fact that the bug was being spelled out in this Phoronix article has anything to do with it .

                  The fact that we could reproduce the bug in house made a big difference too... makes it a heck of a lot easier to fix
