Open-Source Graphics Performance With Unvanquished
Phoronix: Open-Source Graphics Performance With Unvanquished
Unvanquished remains one of the most advanced open-source, cross-platform games available that comes free with an advanced OpenGL 3 renderer. For those curious how it performs for Intel and AMD Radeon graphics on Ubuntu Linux, here's a number of benchmarks using the latest release.
I know im being dumb but i can never get this to work on Linux Mint 15 or 16. I tried the deb's but no, I tried the wget's but no.. I tried various versions but no. Then i tried to compile but no. The PPA didnt work either.
This was a few weeks ago the last time I tried to be fair.
Can someone post how to install this and have it working on Linux Mint 16 with a 3.13.8 Kernal easily or its not worth the effort.
Michael, you printed the High graph twice. I assume the second was supposed to be the frame times.
Have you updated your Mesa? Especially, have you compiled it with --enable-texture-float, so that you actually have OpenGL 3 support?

so the best card at the moment is an HD6870. anything better (like a 6950, 7850 and newer) has worse performance ....
I thought radeonSI was near feature parity with r600. Isn't Ubuntu 14.04 shipping with backports for the llvm 3.5 patches to get GLSL 3.3 on radeonSI so it runs at GL 3.3? If so, these results are abysmal considering the drivers been in development for over two years. One fourth the performance of outdated lower powered hardware?
Something has to be wrong, because Xonotic has similar performance requirements on its ultra presets, but my 7870 can do 30 - 40 fps at 1080p with that. I'm DLing Unvanquished 26 now to see how it runs under PTS.

Same situation here... Radeon HD 5850 1GB VRam, Kernel 3.13.7(3.14 cannot work with compositing effects don't know why!), KDE 4.12.4, whole X.org (Xserver 1.16 rc1) and Mesa stack from pontostroy repository daily git updates, latest ucode-amd and firmware packages 2014-03-19, opensuse 13.1 x64.

But why does compositing raises almost at double the framerates at 3D graphics with r600g driver?
Michael can you run some benches with compositing on or off in various 3D tests for OSS drivers?
