- Intel Iris Pro benchmarks with the Linux 3.12 kernel DRM.

- An 11-way AMD Radeon GPU comparison using the open-source driver shipping with Linux 3.12.

- A 4-way NVIDIA / Nouveau GPU comparison.

- Linux 3.12 file-system results show performance boosts for the key Linux file-systems.

- Big AMD Radeon performaanace improvements that can be rather incredible and due in fact to an interesting change.

- Intel Core i7 Haswell benchmarks from recent kernel releases.

- Nouveau performance benchmarks from Linux 3.12 for this new kernel.

- AMD Catalyst benchmarks with the binary blob already working for this new kernel.

- AMD RadeonSI benchmarks for the new AMD GPUs.

- Intel Ivy Bridge benchmarks from Linux 3.12.
