    Why don't you benchmark bsd open source graphic stack?

      Why do you limit it to open source?

        Probably because it's embarassing.

        Probably because Nvidia blob works exactly the same everywhere.

          For whom?

          How do you know, if you do no benchmarks?

            For them. Consider that their opensource drivers are ports from Linux's ones, and they lag behind quite a bit.

            Because NVIDIA driver is the same everywhere, performance will be the same driver-side.

              Exactly. Binary blobs aren't interesting to me in this case. They should perform the same. I want to see how bsd implementation of the Open Source graphic stack compares to Linux.

                As I said, it's probably going to be around "total crap", as they are living off old backported drivers.

                Once they make wrappers like these http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...-DRM-KMS-Layer things will finally get benchmark-worthy.

                  I know, but Michael used to troll a lot against Linux in the past when its drivers were far from perfect. That's why I wonder why he's so big-hearted when comes to bsd?

                    He's not being big hearted, your anti-BSD worldview is simply coloring intention into his not benchmarking BSD's graphics. Michael basically only benchmarks the BSDs at all when they do a release, and even then only usually FreeBSD. Besides outside of people like you who intend to use it to troll the BSDs the situation for FreeBSD just really isn't that interesting right now on the open source side, as we know that Radeon is going to perform like crap due to lacking dynamic power management and with Intel he can currently only benchmark up to Ivy Bridge (although the situation is likely to change quite a bit with the release of FreeBSD 11, particularly if linuxkpi makes it in). So as a result the real answer is that it simply isn't worth his time.
