XWayland Linux Gaming Performance With GNOME Wayland On Fedora 21
Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 25 September 2014. Page 3 of 3. 23 Comments

Xonotic also saw significant performance drops when running through XWayland on this latest Fedora 21 configuration.

The performance overhead of running on a Wayland session and going through XWayland for these older OpenGL applications is still very noticeable. More interesting will be to see how the native Wayland gaming experience compares as more software begins to work out-of-the-box on Wayland without any X11 dependencies. Stay tuned to Phoronix for our continuing Linux graphics benchmarks.
