openSUSE 13.1 Linux Performance Benchmarks

Unlike the open-source graphics drivers constantly improving, for most platforms/CPUs there aren't any broad performance changes in moving from openSUSE 12.3 to openSUSE 13.1. However, some systems/architectures have advanced for different workloads with changes made between Linux 3.7 and Linux 3.11 along with the GCC 4.7 to GCC 4.8 compiler.

Overall there's benefits on both the graphics and computational side to find out of openSUSE 13.1 during my initial testing thus far, namely due to upstream Linux kernel / Mesa / compiler advancements. Stay tuned for additional openSUSE Linux benchmarks shortly.
