Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 28 December 2014. Page 4 of 4. 9 Comments

The Furmark performance was unchanged for the Core i7-4790K over the past year.

The Pixmark synthetic tests of GpuTest also show rather flat performance year-over-year for Haswell.

These Intel HD Graphics 4600 Haswell results weren't as exciting as the open-source Radeon results and its massive gains, but at least the results were steady and in numerous cases there were measurable OpenGL performance improvements to find this year compared to the end of last year. This year much of Intel's focus has been on getting ready the Broadwell and Cherryview graphics support, among making other improvements to their graphics driver code-base. Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has also started work already on enabling Skylake graphics under Linux.

Stay tuned for some Intel Ivy Bridge benchmark results that will go back further in time. The latest Intel Windows vs. Linux comparison is also coming. If you appreciate all of the Linux benchmarking done at Phoronix, please consider subscribing to Phoronix Premium.
