How Ubuntu Intel Graphics Changed In One Month

Here's a look at how the open-source Intel Linux graphics performance has changed in Ubuntu 12.10 when comparing benchmarks results of Ubuntu Quantal development snapshots from the end of August to the beginning of October.

As some tests and validation being done for Randaberg and various new benchmarking features, I happened to have some results of Ubuntu 12.10 2012-08-23 compared to Ubuntu 12.10 2012-10-08 from an Apple mid-2011 "Sandy Bridge" Mac Mini system with Intel Core i5 2415M processor.

As there may be some curious to see how much the Intel Linux OpenGL performance changed in just a little over one month, here's some of the results below while the rest of the OpenGL performance benchmarks can be found on OpenBenchmarking.org along with the system logs and other information.

Among the packages that changed between the two Ubuntu 12.10 development snapshots was an upgraded Linux 3.5 kernel, going from Unity 6.2 to Unity 6.8, moving from an X.Org Server 1.13 pre-release to final, xf86-video-intel 2.20.4 to 2.20.9, and migrating from an older Mesa 8.1-devel snapshot to Mesa 9.0-devel.

There's some Intel OpenGL Linux performance improvements during this time while there's also some new Linux performance regressions. Continue on to 1210086-RA-INTELUBUN19.
