    Default Ubuntu Now Often Leads Windows 7 On Intel SNB Graphics Performance

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Now Often Leads Windows 7 On Intel SNB Graphics Performance

    Most of our recent Windows vs. Linux performance comparisons have been done using Windows 8 (e.g. AMD Kaveri: Windows 8.1 vs. Ubuntu Linux, SteamOS vs. Windows 8.1, NVIDIA GTX TITAN: Windows 8.1 vs. Ubuntu 13.10, etc). However, for changing things up a bit and looking also at the state of mature graphics drivers, being benchmarked today is the Ubuntu 14.04 Linux performance with the latest open-source Intel HD Graphics driver code compared to Windows 7 Pro x64 with its latest Intel graphics driver when using HD Graphics 3000 "Sandy Bridge" hardware.

    How about on Ivy Bridge and Haswell?

    How about on Windows 8.1?

    Read the last part of the article.


    I know that it's difficult to benchmark source engine games but how about just take the Linux 3.13 + Mesa 10 platform (since it performs the best) and let it run HL2: Lost Coast Benchmark once and do the same on Windows? The Standard Deviation seems to be small most of the time anyway. Or maybe run both tests twice. That shouldn't take long and would still give people some interesting information.

    Nice to see. Especially that when current Linux is under the development version is usually
    on pair or higher than Windows. Great work done here.

    My Gentoo, Sabayon and Ubuntu graphics performance is about the same.

    EDIT: tested just with Xonotic tough

    So Ubuntu is now competitive with a ten-year old OS?

    Nope, it's competitive with a 5 year old OS on 3 year old hardware.

    Just for curiosity's sake, where did you get the idea that Windows 7 is 10 years old?

    ...not to mention that W7 and not W8.x , is the favorite Window$ by Window$ gamers.

    So, yeah, this is great news !

    The time we won't need any more Catalyst in GNU/Linux, even for gaming, is very close.
    At this rate , i hope for total performance equality RadeonXXXX vs Catalyst and RadeonXXXX vs W7/8.x , if not BETTER performance, in one year at most (in special with all progresses in last year, i believe it's credible to hope for it).
