Windows 10 vs. Linux - Intel UHD Graphics OpenGL Performance

This latest-generation i7-8700K CPU can only run Unigine Heaven at 1280 x 1024 at 17 FPS under Windows 10, but it is interesting to note Intel's Clear Linux can run this OpenGL benchmark at 16 FPS while Ubuntu was down at 11 FPS.

With the Unigine Valley benchmark even at 1280 x 1024 the frame-rates are similarly low, but the ordering remains the same with Clear Linux delivering several more frames per second than Ubuntu while Windows 10 remained a bit ahead of these tested Linux distributions.

The Xonotic open-source first person shooter game can at least run at 1080p with low quality settings with ease using the Intel graphics on both Linux and Windows. Clear Linux was 4% faster than Ubuntu while Windows 10 Pro in turn was just 2% faster.

But when upping the graphical settings, Linux was finally running slightly ahead of Windows 10. Clear Linux was on top while Ubuntu was just a few frames lower but still well above 120 FPS.
