Benchmarking Deepin 2014 With DDE 2.0 Using Linux Games

This weekend marked the release of Deepin 2014 as a Chinese derivative of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS featuring the new DDE 2.0 desktop. Here's some benchmarks of running some OpenGL Linux games on Deepin 2014 compared to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS when testing a few different desktop environments.

The Deepin Desktop Environment is written using Google's Go language and makes use of heavy HTML5. DDE also uses Compiz as its compositing window manager. As in the past some desktop environments / window managers have impaired the full-screen Linux gaming performance, I ran some simple Linux gaming benchmarks on Sunday to see if the Deepin 2014 performance differed at all from upstream Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Ubuntu 14.04 was tested with the stock Unity 7.2 desktop using Compiz, GNOME Shell 3.10.4, and Xfce 4.10 all from the stock Trusty Tahr archive.

Deepin 2014 ships with all of the same major packages as Ubuntu 14.04 like the Linux 3.13.0-30-generic x86_64 kernel, xf86-video-intel 2.99.910, GCC 4.8.2, etc, but its Mesa version is bumped ahead slightly to Mesa 10.1.3 compared to 10.1.0 in stock Ubuntu Trusty without the stable release updates. All of the benchmarking for this brief Deepin Linux gaming comparison was done from an ASUS ultrabook with Intel Core i7 processor and HD Graphics 4000.

All benchmarks for this brief comparison were done using the Phoronix Test Suite and the results can be found on the following page.
