Intel Iris Pro 5200 vs. HD Graphics 4600

After several weeks of testing the Linux-friendly System76 Gazelle Pro Haswell laptop, we've now been using the System76 Galago UltraPro for a wide variety of Linux testing as its powered by the Core i7 4750HQ CPU with Iris Pro 5200 graphics. In the preview article for this System76 ultrabook we ran some early comparative tests while in this article are some direct Ubuntu 13.10 comparison benchmarks between System76's two Intel Haswell laptops. What's most interesting to see with these results is how much faster the Iris Pro graphics are over HD Graphics 4600.

Intel Iris Pro Linux Graphics Yield Some Wins Against Windows

For the past few days at Phoronix we have begun looking extensively at the Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics under Linux, since receiving the System76 Galago UltraPro. The Iris Pro 5200 are the new high-end Intel Haswell graphics that have 128MB of embedded video RAM on the die, which should yield a nice performance boost when properly implemented within the Intel Linux driver. Already our testing has found the Iris Pro performance on Linux has doubled with open-source driver improvements since Haswell's launch. Now we're out today with our first Intel Iris Pro OpenGL gaming benchmarks between Ubuntu Linux and Microsoft Windows 8 for this Intel Core i7 Ultrabook.

Intel Iris Pro 5200 Graphics

While we have delivered tons of Intel Haswell coverage on Phoronix -- more than 100 stories on the latest-generation Intel processors and graphics written by your's truly -- one of the areas not yet covered have been the high-end Iris Pro Graphics with integrated eDRAM. We haven't been able to run any Linux benchmarks of the Iris Pro due to lack of hardware, but System76 is said to be soon sending over a review sample of their Galago UltraPro with Iris Pro Graphics 5200. In the meantime, however, a Phoronix reader has graciously lent us remote access to his Iris Pro system for Ubuntu Linux graphics testing.

NVIDIA's Linux Driver On Ubuntu Is Very Competitive With Windows 8

In recent days on Phoronix I have published benchmarks showing Windows 8 beating Ubuntu Linux for Intel Haswell performance and the Radeon Gallium3D driver losing to AMD Catalyst Legacy on Windows. As some good news for NVIDIA Linux users, the performance on Ubuntu Linux can beat out Microsoft Windows 8 on modern GPUs. However, the strong Linux performance can only be found if using the closed-source NVIDIA driver and not the open-source Nouveau alternative.

AMD Radeon, NVIDIA GeForce Linux Comparison For July 2013

At the request of many Phoronix readers, the Linux performance benchmarks to share with you today are the results for an OpenGL performance comparison between a dozen different AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards on their latest proprietary graphics drivers when running a slew of Linux games, including Valve's Team Fortress 2 benchmark, Unvanquished on its OpenGL 3.x renderer, and the new GpuTest workloads.

AMD Radeon HD 8670D Preview On Linux

This past weekend I delivered benchmarks of the AMD A10-6800K Richland APU under Ubuntu Linux. This mild upgrade over AMD's Trinity APU ran faster on the CPU side and overclocked well, but how do the graphics performance under Linux? In this article are benchmarks of the Radeon HD 8670D running the Catalyst Linux driver on Ubuntu and compared to the previous-generation Radeon HD 7660D APU graphics.

15-Way Open-Source Intel/AMD/NVIDIA GPU Comparison

When running Fedora 19 with its updated open-source Linux graphics drivers, 15 different Intel, AMD Radeon, and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs were compared when looking at the open-source Linux OpenGL performance. The tested graphics processors span from the Intel HD Graphics 4600 "Haswell" integrated graphics to the AMD Radeon HD 7950 "Southern Islands" graphics card to the vintage Radeon X1800XL.

Intel Haswell HD Graphics 4600 vs. AMD Radeon Graphics On Linux

Already published on Phoronix have been Intel HD Graphics 4600 benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux from the Intel Core i7 4770K "Haswell" processor and compared against previous generations of Intel HD Graphics. Being benchmarked today is the Intel HD Graphics 4600 on Linux compared against various AMD Radeon graphics cards using both the open and closed-source graphics drivers.

Intel Haswell HD Graphics 4600 Performance On Ubuntu Linux

After delivering the Intel Core i7 4770K Haswell benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux this week already, which focused mostly on the processor performance, in this article are the first benchmarks of the Haswell OpenGL Linux performance. Testing was of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 graphics core found on the i7-4770K, which under Linux is supported by Intel's open-source driver.

Intel HD 2000/2500/3000/4000 Linux OpenGL Comparison

For seeing where the current OpenGL driver performance stands for Intel's open-source Linux graphics driver on Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors, the very latest Linux kernel and Mesa development code were tested across four different processors to stress the HD 2000, HD 2500, HD 3000, and HD 4000 graphics capabilities atop Ubuntu.
