With the latest Linux graphics driver code, only the Core i5 2500K and Core i5 3470 of the tested hardware able to run above 30 FPS at 1920 x 1080. Thank god the HD 4000 Ivy Bridge and Haswell graphics are much faster and tend to deliver a much better experience for casual Linux gamers.

The Core i5 2500K "Sandy Bridge" tends to do better than the Core i5 3470 "Ivy Bridge" CPU due to the i5-3470 using the low-end HD 2500 graphics instead of the HD 4000 graphics on the higher-end IVB CPUs.

With Prey at 1920 x 1080 the i5-2500K and i5-3470 were lucky to pass a 30 FPS average.
