    Default Sandy Bridge Become Quicker With Linux 3.3, 3.4

    Phoronix: Sandy Bridge Become Quicker With Linux 3.3, 3.4

    With the release of the Linux 3.3 kernel being imminent and the Linux 3.4 kernel drm-next already offering lots of changes, here are some Intel Sandy Bridge benchmarks comparing the Linux 3.2 kernel to a near-final Linux 3.3 kernel and then the drm-next kernel that's largely a 3.3 kernel but with the DRM driver code that will work its way into Linux 3.4.

    y ivy bridge and haswell will make middle class laptop graphic cards obsolete.
    the only thing missing is dafault vaapi support for gstreamer , vappi, flash, html5/vp8.

    Default speed up in Ubuntu 12.04

    I thought that major performance speed up in kernel 3.3 is thanks to RC6 support, isn't it? And Ubuntu 12.04 has backported RC6 support for Intel.

    How many more speedups can intel squeeze out?

    Now i'm really wondering how the linux performance compares to the windows performance since they seem to keep improving the linux version all the time.

    that is very unlikely, it can be said of AMD's Trinity, and future APUs but Intel will probably continue to lag around the bottom end of whatever the current generation at the time will be. Particularly given I doubt they'll be competitive by Ivy bridge and by the time Haswell comes out, AMD will have had time to completely optimize GCN and we have yet to see where Kepler stands.

    well ivy bridge is close to liano. there are only 10-20% missing. trinity ofc wil daramatically increase the performance from ca. 6570 to 7750 this summer, while intel will reach that level with haswell in spring 2013.

    Ivy Bridge might be close to Llano, however it will be competing with Trinity, and the rest of the 7xxx series lineup, and I seriously doubt Haswell which will be competing with Trinity's Successor and the 8xxx series lineup, unless they've rearchitected their GPU , will go much past Llano.

    yes amd will always be 1 generation ahead. but haswel will be a mega step forward. they are almost only focusing on the gpu.
    while ivy bridge gives ca 20-50% performance boost, haswell is going to add 50% and more to ivy bridge.

    okay lets just say for a moment that you're right and somehow Haswell does manage to pull off a big boost (I don't trust that given Intel's GPU history). Even so It'll still be at a major performance loss versus whatever the current Midrange at the time is. Plus the kinds of people who go for midrange discrete graphics in a laptop aren't going to be going for intel gpus anyway.
