Phoronix: Linux OpenGL: Ubuntu 13.04/13.10 vs. Fedora 19/20
Under the microscope this Saturday morning are benchmark results comparing the Intel Haswell graphics performance of Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 13.10 Beta, Fedora 19, and Fedora 20 Alpha. The System76 Galago UltraPro with Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics was used to see how these four Linux distribution releases compare in their open-source OpenGL graphics/gaming performance.
That's a pretty impressive differance between recent versions. I wonder if it's the same for Gen1/2/3 Core CPU's as well on the same test!
Just shows that Ubuntu is exactly the crapware i always thought of it as.
Thanks for benchmarks! Thats exactly the problem. Even Debian Testing is currently 3.10.... :3
Also, there is something that you can't really benchmark - bugs. 3.10 still has a lot of bugs, which were all resolved in latest DRM kernel.
apt-get install -t experimental libgl1-mesa-glx
I don't get this obsession with default installations here on phoronix. It's trivial to upgrade the kernel or mesa. People act like if the GUI installer doesn't give you something by default, then you will never ever ever be able to run it on your distro.
But then the same people happily go through root canal surgery required to install and set up binary blobs and Steam and games under Wine.
