Seven Versions Of WINE Benchmarked
Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 9 December 2007. Page 6 of 6. 5 Comments

The performance in the fourteen 3DMark 2001 SE and 3DMark 2003 tests were fairly consistent in the releases between WINE 0.9.44 and WINE 0.9.50 -- generally only swaying a few frames in either direction -- though the performance overall has slightly declined and we were surprised by a few of the results. Specifically, we experienced a drop in performance with the vertex shader and pixel shader performance and in the 3DMark "Battle of Proxycon" and Ragtroll tests. As aforementioned, we had kept the same WINE configuration during testing and are only looking at the graphics performance. We will be providing more WINE benchmarks in the future, and you can discuss these results in the Phoronix Forums. You may also be interested in our WINE benchmarks from October comparing Ubuntu 7.10 to Windows XP.
