    Default Fedora 13 Alpha Benchmarks

    Phoronix: Fedora 13 Alpha Benchmarks

    Following the release of Fedora 13 Alpha this week we delivered Intel graphics benchmarks looking at the performance of an Intel Atom Netbook using the very latest kernel, DRM, and Mesa packages that Fedora is known for carrying. There are regressions in the Intel stack worth noting, but in this article, we are continuing in our Fedora 13 benchmarking by looking at the general system performance of the Linux desktop.

    Do you still have the results from Alpha 1 on previous Fedora releases?

    It would be interesting to compare how much performance has changed from Alpha to Alpha for each release (the debugging arguments would be the same for all of them)

    +1 This should be done, would be like comparing apples to apples.

    Hi,

    It's very easy to misinterpret these benchmarks and just to clarify again, Fedora has extensive debugging options (compared to other distro devel branches) enabled during the pre-release which has a very significant impact on performance and since debugging options help in gathering more information when Fedora gets bug reports, this is the trade-off.

    So take performance impact benchmarks with a pinch of a salt or even more than a pinch :-)
