The now-defunct Nexuiz open-source game continues to be a reliable cross-platform OpenGL test. With this first test, Windows 10 is about 32% faster than Ubuntu 15.10 with the updated graphics stack.

OpenArena performs at close to the same speed for each operating system.

With the very demanding Unigine Heaven benchmark, the HD Graphics 530 obviously struggle and end up being close to the same speed between the competing operating systems.

While Unigine Heaven showed the performance close to the same, with the modern Unigine Valley test the Intel Windows 10 stack is much faster.
