Intel HD Sandy/Ivy Bridge Linux Graphics Performance On Ubuntu 13.10

With most of the exciting Intel Mesa open-source Linux graphics driver updates being now about Haswell or Bay Trail (Valley View), it's been a while since last publishing any benchmarks of previous-generation Intel "Sandy Bridge" and "Ivy Bridge" graphics results with the latest open-source driver code. Changing that, today are benchmarks of several different Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors when running Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.11 kernel and Mesa 9.2.

The focus of this article is to give an updated look at where the Intel HD Graphics performance currently stands for Sandy/Ivy Bridge hardware as lately on phoronix most of our Intel Linux benchmarks have been about Haswell. From an ECS Z77H2-A2X system with Ubuntu 13.10 x86_64 on the OCZ SSD, we changed out the CPUs for an Intel Core i3 2120 with HD 2000 graphics, Core i5 3470 with HD 2500 graphics, Core i5 2500K with HD 3000 graphics, and a Core i7 3770K with HD 4000 graphics.

There are the obvious core and clock differences between the four Intel CPUs used for today's testing, but these numbers are mainly for reference purposes. If you want to compare your own Linux system's OpenGL performance against these Ubuntu Linux numbers, it is a very trivial process. With the Phoronix Test Suite installed you simply have to run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1310088-SO-INTELHDGR83 to get a side-by-side look at how your system performs against these four different Sandy/Ivy Bridge processors in a range of Linux-native 2D and 3D performance benchmarks.

Let's get a look at the Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge performance expectations under Ubuntu 13.10!
