Fedora 19 vs. Fedora 20 Beta Benchmarks
Phoronix: Fedora 19 vs. Fedora 20 Beta Benchmarks
With this week's release of Fedora 20 Beta, I have carried out some benchmarks comparing the performance of Fedora 19 to this latest development release.
Depends on the changes made in the kernel. Kernel changes that bump performance could be better memory management, DPM, or PCI-E changes, or there could be a few others but those were just off the top of my head.

The case with that one benchmark suite where f19+updates is massively faster than f20 seems odd; do you have any time to try and get a bit more detail there? I'd have to assume it's something wonky with the test setup or the benchmark itself, but it's possible there's something more to it...
Michael, check the Reaction Quake graph b/c the line graph doesn't agree with the bar graph. The bar graph indicates that fps is nearly constant while the frame draw times are all over the place.
