Like Nexuiz, Warsow is currently failing on Ubuntu 11.04 (development) for this setup. On the plus side, this is the first test where the Intel Linux graphics performance under Ubuntu is actually faster than Mac OS X. The Intel Linux graphics are faster with Warsow until hitting the top resolutions of 1680 x 1050 where it falls below Mac OS X. Neither operating system though can provide a playable frame-rate for Warsow on this hardware and in the test profile's given game setting configuration.
For the last tests of this brief Mac OS X vs. Linux Intel graphics comparison, Mac OS X 10.6.6 is again still faster than Ubuntu 10.10. However, the Intel integrated graphics are too slow to be useful for Urban Terror.
While Windows 7 results are unavailable for this hardware, later in the week we do have results coming out comparing Intel's Core i5 2500K "Sandy Bridge" graphics performance under Ubuntu Linux and Microsoft Windows 7.
