Linux 3.2 To 3.8 Kernels With Intel Ivy Bridge Graphics

There wasn't much change in performance out of the Qfusion-based Warsow game.

When running the Xonotic first person shooter with low-quality settings, there wasn't much change in performance during the past seven Linux kernel cycles for the Ivy Bridge graphics hardware.

After moving to high-quality settings with Xonotic, there is an Intel HD 4000 performance boost between the Linux 3.3 and 3.4 kernels while the frame-rate has been flat-lined after that point.

Stay tuned for the Intel HD 4000 Mesa comparison plus similar kernel/Mesa historical version comparisons for the Radeon and Nouveau drivers.
