    It would then make the benchmarks inaccurate.

    No, it wouldn't. It would show what sort of performance you can expect on Windows vs what sort of performance you can expect on linux.

    I'm not saying these benchmarks are of no interest. It's nice to see how linux driver performrance compares to windows driver performance. But I'm more interested in seeing how Windows performance more generally compares against linux performance.

    Linux driver performance vs Windows driver performance? That's an easy one. On Linux, glxgears runs at 300 FPS. On Windows, Dota 2 runs at 40 FPS. Clearly the Linux driver is more performant.

    That sounds right. It's not even relative to the card used. Just any AMD card gives those numbers. Amazing, really.
