Next up are some windowed tests.

Interestingly for the triangle GpuTest case, which is largely limited by video memory bandwidth, GNOME on Wayland was still much faster than the desktops on the X.Org Server.

For the last of the tests today for addressing the test requests of Phoronix Premium subscribers were Unigine Valley runs. Except for MATE 1.10 acting up with Unigine Valley, the full-screen performance was close between the full-screen test while in the windowed mode Xfce 4.12 had a lead for running Valley. GNOME on Wayland wouldn't run with Unigine Valley in this configuration.
