Ubuntu 13.10 Can Outperform OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" On Intel OpenGL
The first Nexuiz test run with the DarkPlaces engine show that while Apple has improved their GL stack greatly for Mavericks and supports much of OpenGL 4.1, the open-source Intel Mesa driver with its OpenGL 3.1~3.3 support is more performant. With Mesa 9.2 on the same Apple hardware, the Intel HD 3000 graphics were up to 79% faster on Linux.
Xonotic is also noticeably faster on Ubuntu 13.10 Linux over the current Apple OS X 10.9 Mavericks developer preview.
