    Default Valve Source Engine Linux Benchmarks Are Imminent

    Phoronix: Valve Source Engine Linux Benchmarks Are Imminent

    I am now cleared to begin publishing Linux graphics benchmarks of Valve's Source Engine games on Linux plus other performance-related information from the Steam Linux client...

    If at all possible, can you also include Windows (and possible OSX) tests for comparison ?

    Due to the 100% Steam CPU bug which Valve still hasn't fixed (See http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410...6056740854031/ ), any benchmarks done right now are not really accurate. I could get a 20+ FPS difference by messing up with Steam process niceness, and that doesn't even fix the issue, it just lowers it.

    I would really like to see AMD windows vs linux benchmarks, especially on low-end hardware. I know people that say that they play TF2 (on windows) on hardware similar or lower than my AMD E-350, and the linux version with the very latest AMD drivers and with lowest graphics is unplayable.

    I'm definitely interested to see how old of an integrated Intel GPU can play these games at 30 FPS, since there are tons of cheap chipsets that include them. Making my own little arcade box for Steam would be a fun weekend project.

    If you're going to use Ubuntu, please make sure the latest updates (Undirect fullscreen windows) is enabled, or test in Gnobuntu, at least on some tests, please!
