    Phoronix: Clear Linux Rolling Out KDE Plasma Desktop Support, Plus Some Benchmarks Against GNOME Shell

    The performance-optimized Clear Linux distribution out of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center started out with Xfce as its lone desktop option and then added and moved over to the GNOME Shell as the default desktop. While GNOME Shell remains the default desktop choice for this rolling-release Linux distribution, KDE components have begun appearing in recent days.

    Looks pretty close in most cases, which makes sense. There are the obvious major differences in the GpuTest benchmarks, but I'm sure the resident trolls would say this is just a case of fake news or leftist PC gone mad.

        KSnapshot has been succeeded by Spectacle for quite some time now.

          nice comparison - I am sure the KDE Plasma/Kwin teams will sort that performance difference out in time.

            Will be interesting to see Plasma Wayland included in the next test.

              Were the tests done in fullscreen or windowed? And does it make any difference?

                ClearLinux with KDE! This was what I was waiting for a long time. I will try this as my next desktop. I'm currently on KDE Neon.

                  It makes a significant difference if compositing is blocked while the application is fullscreen — for this to be done, it needs to send a hint to the windowing system, but most modern games should do that out of the box. Of course, you could also disable the compositor yourself; IIRC, by default, Kwin lets you toggle compositing by pressing Alt+Shift+F12.

                    Amazing news! I don't know how to download the iso of this linux operating system yet!
