First up are a few basic graphics tests, but nothing particularly exciting as the UHD Graphics 630 aren't capable of running many modern games, etc.

With the basic GLmark2 reference benchmark, Clear Linux was the fastest which doesn't come as too much surprise since they are using the latest Mesa 17.3-dev Git code by default and are always aggressive in their carrying of various performance patches. Antergos 17.10 meanwhile was noticeably slower than the other tested distributions.

With the ParaView scientific visualization software, the results were much closer between these distributions though Clear Linux still had some wins.

The GpuTest results were a mix as well but basically no unexpected surprises.
