Intel HD Sandy/Ivy Bridge Linux Graphics Performance On Ubuntu 13.10

Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 8 October 2013 at 12:24 PM EDT. Page 6 of 6. 6 Comments.

The 2D GtkPerf benchmarks -- like the QGears2 results -- are much less interesting than the OpenGL results. With the SNA acceleration back-end that's to be the default in xf86-video-intel 3.0, the Intel 2D Linux driver situation is in fairly good shape.

Again, if you want to see how any of your Linux system's compare against these 2D and 3D performance results today for this updated Sandy/Ivy Bridge round-up, with the Phoronix Test Suite simply run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1310088-SO-INTELHDGR83.
