    If Michael configured his benchmark environment so that KWin compositing would not be automatically enabled on log-in, the Xorg results likely would look different.
    These are games, I would expect compositing to go away the minute I switch to full screen. Or does Michael test them in windowed mode?

    Nvidia ?

    I wonder how will kwinft and kwin-lowlatency look in these tests. I think problems with Hitman were because it failed to request compositor to disable for some reasons.

    I hope a kwin developer takes a look at these graphs. It appears that KDE always scores lower, even if it looks margin of error. Most likely there's some weird frame timing bug or some strange interaction between the compositor and the game being composed.

    Especially with Hitman 2. I have a strong suspicion that if we can figure out and fix whatever kwin is doing strangely with that game, all of the other results will get a nice uplift.

    And a personal anecdote, with dual monitor on Xorg, I pretty much have to disable compositing (alt+shift+f12), otherwise I get huge frame drops or low FPS. Not sure why this is the case, but I wonder if these graphs are indicating this issue I experience too.

    It moves quickly so if you haven't tried it in a year it might be quite different.

    Gnome Wayland is faster but meaningless if I cannot use Freesync 144hz on my monitor. Until then X.Org it is for gaming.

    well on these, we saw X kicking, but it was mostly with productivity workloads..

    It would be nice to have the same power consumption and temperature graphics( on this bench), so that we could have a picture on them..

    Now, I was left with the impression that Xorg works nicely for productivity and Wayland works better for Games o.0

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

    Maybe because the results he said yesterday were different.
