Well in those games catalyst may perform same as windows but in steam games I can see big differences between them. There should be some real games like cssource,csgo,dota2,trine1-2
who cares about xonotic and openarena..................
Not only native vs native benchmarks also native vs wine - 3 columns - would be great
Where we probably would watch sometimes that wine performs better than native GNU/Linux and a little bit worse than native MS WOS 8.1
Can anyone explain why the high-end NVIDIA cards (GTX 680) perform particularly good on Linux?
CPU limit hit.
And linux is in general a little bit faster when it comes to cpu performance...
... but just a guess
Interesting as Ubuntu 13.10 ships with pstate disabled. Wonder if the results would have been different if the driver had been enabled instead of ondemand.
I wouldnt consider any AMD card with less than 800 shaders for gaming purposes. Spend the money and get a card with at least 800 shaders.
I run xfce4 as my desktop system on a very old gentoo installation. It is fully updated, but the time that I originally installed was a looong time ago. I've got a lot of cruft built up.
EDIT: It is still true, even in todays day and age, that when buying hardware for linux you have to check compatibility first. For now the r600g driver is better than the radeonsi driver, so get something that can use r600g.
