Intel SNA Performance Continues To Be Compelling
Phoronix: Intel SNA Performance Continues To Be Compelling
Due to the extreme pace at which Chris Wilson has been releasing SNA architecture updates for Intel's open-source X.Org driver, here are another set of benchmarks of Intel Sandy Bridge HD 3000 graphics when comparing UXA and SNA using yesterday's Git code following the xf86-video-intel 2.20.2 driver release.
Cool but a reference point would be nice.
It is great to see the relative gains that Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge whatever are doing. And much love to the dudes squeezing all kinds of performance out of it with a new software architecture.
I would however like to see some kind of baseline against the usual suspects in discrete gpus. Nothing fancy, just the bottom of the range from AMD and Nvidia to give it all some kind of perspective.
