Phoronix: Linux 3.0, 3.4, 3.10, 3.12 AMD Kernel Benchmarks
How does the Linux kernel performance compare if simply bouncing between some of the recent long-term kernel releases? Well, to try to answer that question on Phoronix today we have benchmarks of the Linux 3.0.101, 3.4.68, 3.10.18, and 3.12.0 kernel releases tested from an AMD Opteron system with Radeon graphics.
They're there, nothing has changed, it all depends upon the specific test profiles as whether min/max information can be obtained.
I don't think min/max is representative of the experience someone might have when playing the game using the given kernel/drivers. I think a better alternative would be to show the 1st and 3rd quartiles (or, really, just use box plots instead of bar charts).
