    Phoronix: Mac OS X 10.8 vs. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Performance

    Regardless of whether you're an Apple fan or not, by now you've likely heard the information about Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" that began making its rounds on the Internet since last week. But how's the performance of Mac OS X 10.8 and how will it compare to the competition on the Linux side, namely Ubuntu 12.04 LTS? In this article are our first benchmarks of the developer preview release of Mac OS X 10.8 compared to Mac OS X 10.7.3 and then Ubuntu 11.10 plus the latest Ubuntu 12.04 LTS development snapshot.

    The end result was also tested.

    Not surprisingly, OpenSSL has a very low performance on OS X. Is there a chance the Phoronix Test can be updated with Common Crypto?

    So we could see the security libraries Apple is working on and not the ones which are being phased out?

    Quite strange Nexuiz was so slow. I remeber an article in 2011 where intel linux graphics was almost on par with windows..... but not with sandy bridge if i remeber well. Would be very nice to have a Win vs Linux benchmark with intel sandy bridge IGP (on a PC not on apple hw).

    I'm waiting for a benchmark with Ubuntu 13.x with Wayland and Intel Graphics jeje.

    sna?

    How does this compare when using a more updated Mesa stack (rc2 is nice, but using git feels really up-to-date) and the --enable-sna flag for the intel driver? Looking at previous articles, it seems that it would squeeze a few extra fps, but not much. Still might be interesting.

    +1 to the battery benchmarks.

    one of the key aspects in notebooks is the battery duration, that has usually been usually less than good in Linux, and really good in OSX.
    Since Ubuntu 12.04 is focusing in battery duration, would it be possible to measure that?

    Thanks!
    Excellent point! I would also love to see this benchmarked.

    What about battery duration
