    Phoronix: Ubuntu 19.10 Is The First Time We've Seen (X)Wayland Gaming Performance Match X.Org

    With Ubuntu 19.10 it's the first time we have seen the Radeon gaming performance under a GNOME Wayland session match or exceed the performance found under the default GNOME X.Org session...

    I'm old enough to remember when Mir was going to be default on Ubuntu 13.10. Yeah, good times. We just passed the 6 year anniversary of the first of many missed deadlines.

    Anyway, good to see Wayland finally pulling it's own weight. Congratulations to a lot of developers who've put in a lot of hard work!

      It was inevitable that Wayland would one day reach this point, glad to see we are finally there.
      Great job to all involved!

        How is the input latency with Xwayland powered games?

        Is it possible to use accelerated Xwayland with Nvidia drivers yet?

          I remember 2007-2008 when Wayland was announced and we thought that in like 3-4 years it would replace X.Org and used by default. So if Ubuntu 20.10 ships with Wayland used by default then it's 13 freakin' years.

            We will be "there" when games will run natively on Wayland without expecting any form of X.
            Still, this is good news.

              I guess that many already do just by using SDL... ?

                So after 10+ years of development, you can barely show even 5% gaming improvement. I think it would be hard for anyone to claim this project as being a great success.

                  In theory. In practice every game I know that is SDL-based uses it over X11 and probably hasn't even been tested on Wayland. If Ubuntu finally and permanently switches to Wayland by default in 20.10 then things may start moving at last.

                    We would be there if Proton could be built without X dependencies

                    Not expecting native games doing so anytime soon.
