    Phoronix: Fedora 26 vs. 27 Beta Benchmarks, Wayland vs. X.Org Gaming Tests

    For your viewing pleasure this weekend are our first benchmarks of the current state of Fedora 27 post-beta with a variety of different workloads. Additionally, from the latest Fedora 27 packages is a fresh gaming comparison with GNOME Shell running on Wayland versus the X.Org session.

    Is this a typo?

    In some cases the X.Org performance is still a few frames faster, but nearly as bad as it previously was when there was greater overhead to XWayland, some performance issues addressed in the Mutter compositor, etc
    Oh, wait, an actual typo in the page names:

      The title is misleading. It's X vs. XWayland.

        Yeah, but everyone and their dog knows that no game runs native on wayland anyway.

            Perhaps you weren't asking it the right questions.

              I'm on Ubuntu 17.10 and running Wayland most of the time these days. Benchmarks show xwayland as fine for gaming but the subjective experience still tells me something is wrong on xwayland because I get obvious stuttering which doesn't show up in benchmarks. It's not game breaking, but it's noticible. Also, the increased input lag of xwayland is very annoying in first person shooters. I often switch back to Xorg when I play those kind of games.

                Can other people confirm this input lag phenomenon ? That's extremely important for gaming. I already feel there is some input lag under X, if there is even more with Xwayland, it'll temporarily (for how many years ?) make our platform even less viable for gaming.

                  Well, I did get Teeworlds-git running natively on wayland (it uses SDL2), and it seemed a lot smoother than when running on XWayland.

                    Yes, when on Wayland, there is a noticeable input lag that makes your gaming very disappointing. Can't play CS:GO with it.
