    Phoronix: KDE/GNOME Wayland vs. X.Org Radeon Linux Gaming Performance

    As we hit the end of 2021 for those wondering about the X.Org vs. (X)Wayland gaming performance difference for both GNOME Shell and KDE Plasma, here are some fresh benchmarks using the latest open-source Radeon graphics driver stack and desktops on Ubuntu 21.10.

      Wayland is not only faster, but more secure and power efficient. Eat this xorg fanboys.

        I find it interesting how my experience with Wayland in games is just the opposite of the Phoronix benchmarks, and it's not just about FPS.

            I did not expect to see that much variance in some of those tests.

              Maybe because the results he said yesterday were different.

                sounds like you have a lot of things to say

                  ...those are completely different benchmarks, and the results don't contradict anything said here or there. The Wayland sessions for KDE and GNOME both appear to outperform their X counterparts.

                    If he compares the bars, he can see similarities, and that can be the cause of the different expectation that he talked about.
