    Phoronix: The Performance Of Fedora 20 Updated

    Fedora in general tends to have a more liberal update policy than Ubuntu and others when it comes to stable releases of software; new versions of the Linux kernel are shipped down to stable releases of Fedora, etc. With Fedora 21 not arriving until late in 2014, exceptions have been given to also ship new Mesa updates for Fedora 20 users to provide a more modern and updated hardware experience. For those curious how Fedora 20's performance compares to when it made its debut in December to how it performs now with all official stable updates, here's some benchmarks.

    Thumbs up The Best

    All things considered, Fedora is overall the best distribution.

    Default RadeonSI Performance

    Perhaps the most improved part of this kernel and mesa will be the performance of RadeonSI.

    It's workable with Mesa 9.2 but get a lot better in Mesa 10.1.

    Kernel 3.14 will hit Fedora 20 eventually, I have no doubt. Not sure about Mesa 10.2 though.

    RadeonSI performance improved handsomely, I can now play Portal 2 with full specs at FullHD resolution without a single slowdown on a HD7850.
