With Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at 1080p it would be tough to play the game fluidly with the current performance. Windows 10 Pro x64 was the fastest at a 40 FPS average compared to the Linux distributions at 35~37 FPS. Overall though not too bad and didn't anticipate the Kabylake Linux driver performing that closely already to Windows.

Windows 10 was also the fastest for Team Fortress 2 while Clear Linux was the fastest of the Linux distributions tested. Antergos results weren't available for the Steam Linux game tests due to library issues with how it interacts with the Phoronix Test Suite.

Unigine Heaven remains rather taxing on Intel graphics and Windows 10 Pro x64 was slightly faster than the Linux distributions tested.

Windows 10 Pro was also the fastest over the Linux distributions tested. Clear Linux continued the best as it could against the Linux distributions.
