    From my experience, one gets the maximum framerate with LXDE and XFCE (with the compositor disabled), on Linux.

    Compiz of Unity, etc, reduce performance.

    Also, by uninstalling, or disabling buntu's apport (crash reporting tool), programs start faster, and probably run faster.

    To disable apport:

    sudo nano /etc/default/apport:

    enabled=0

    and then, reboot.

    So, I think some benchmarks with Lubuntu, or Xubuntu (with the compositor disabled), would be interesting.
    See the 6 way benchmarks from earlier in the week.... Unity and compiz no longer have the overhead they once did.

    But is still open question - how intel os drivers work on other distros (other kernel&xorg&sof compilation and configuration)?

    How come "Intel Haswell HD Graphics 4400 Are Great" but HD Graphics 4600 aren't? What's so different? Also, has there been any benchmarks/comparisons of Intel graphics with AMD APU?
