Our latest benchmarks from the ASUS S56CA-WH31 Intel Ultrabook is comparing the performance of this Ivy Bridge laptop between Fedora 18 and a recent Ubuntu 13.04 development snapshot under various workloads.

The ASUS S56CA-WH31 is the laptop/ultrabook powered by an Intel Core i3 3217U "Ivy Bridge" processor with HD 4000 graphics that was used for the Windows 8 vs. Ubuntu Linux Intel OpenGL benchmarks and is also going to deliver some results from Windows 7 SP1 with Fedora and Ubuntu and other configurations later today or tomorrow. In this article are just some quick and early Fedora 18 vs. Ubuntu 13.04 comparison results for reference purposes.

Full system details on this Core i3 Ivy Bridge system from ASUS along with all of the software package details for Fedora 18 and Ubuntu 13.04 can be found on OpenBenchmarking.org within 1304042-PTS-INTELASU12. Both Ubuntu 13.04 and Fedora 18 were tested when cleanly-installed, updated at the time of testing, and using the stock packages/settings.

All testing was handled in a fully-automated, standardized, and reproducible way using the cross-platform open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.

Ubuntu 13.04 at the time was using Mesa 9.0 but "Raring Ringtail" final will be using Mesa 9.1, just like Fedora 18. More HD 4000 OpenGL benchmarks will come in the next Windows vs. Linux article from this ultrabook.

With both Linux operating systems using GCC 4.7.2 as the compiler, there isn't a huge difference for many of the computational tests.

Though there are some slight performance differences between the platforms...
