    Default Intel Iris Pro 5200: Windows 8 vs. Ubuntu Linux Redux

    Phoronix: Intel Iris Pro 5200: Windows 8 vs. Ubuntu Linux Redux

    Earlier this month I published benchmarks of Intel's Iris Pro 5200 graphics when comparing the Intel driver performance between Windows 8 and Ubuntu Linux. The test results found that there were some performance wins for Intel OpenGL on Linux after the very latest open-source driver optimizations were made, but there are still some losses. In this article are a few more Windows 8 vs. Linux benchmark results for the Haswell Ultrabook with Iris Pro graphics.

    Wow, the level of parity is remarkable - I'm so glad I upgraded my desktop to a Haswell system

    Its not bad. I kinda wish it was closer with the newer workloads/games (ie: Unigine demo), but its pretty damn good.

    I'd try kernel 3.12-rc which has eDRAM support for Iris Pro

    Yeah, look at the normalized results:

    http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...dows+8+Pro+x64

    The most favorable results show linux 75% faster, and the least favorable show windows 25% faster. I don't think you can ever have perfect parity, but clearly, Intel Open Source drivers are first class citizens ...

    Will windows bloat affect these results at all?

    Say the win8 driver is faster, but win8 has bloat so its a bit slower.. but still a competative overall.
    Is/could this be happening?

    What "bloat" does win8 have? What are you on about?
    Yes many do not like win8 because of metro and all, but under-the-hood, win8 is superior to win7 in terms of performance.

    tl;dr: As long as you don't hit into an OpenGL 3.2 or higher feature, Linux is on par with Windows, and can be even faster.

    Amazing.

    Default Why only Ubuntu? Iwant Arch or Manjaro too

    You asked which distros would we ike to be benchmarked too?
    i think it would be easy to add Manjaro RR but with versions or builds or Sabayon or Fedora
    Even 32 and 64 bit versions of Ubuntu

    deb + rpm + Arch + Gentoo are rhe 4 big branches and it seems only deb does exist here

    No need for HDD Multisystem at a any big USB3 pendrive with a
    Manjaro ISO
    Sabayon ISO
    Ubuntu ISO
    Suse ISO

    And install and run the Phoronix suite from other USB3 at each Live ISO
