Intel HD Graphics On Linux 3.15 Brings Few Changes
Phoronix: Intel HD Graphics On Linux 3.15 Brings Few Changes
Now that we have run the Nouveau open-source NVIDIA tests on the Linux 3.15 kernel and discovered there were no real performance changes for this latest Linux kernel, after finding some Radeon regressions in Linux 3.15, now our attention is on Intel and their Haswell-based HD Graphics. Fortunately, the Intel numbers are slightly more interesting than the Nouveau data.
Where are the Iris benchmarks?
With a lot of Desktops now shipping with Iris, is it possible for you to obtain a machine that has an Iris Pro 5200 and do comparisons. Being a "SteamBox" focused GPU such benchmarks are going to become very important.
For instance, I bought a 4750R and a 4770R in the Brix Pro and found that the 4750R is a lot faster because it can trubo boost and has better heat management than the 4770R.
