Intel OpenGL Performance: OS X vs. Windows vs. Linux
Phoronix: Intel OpenGL Performance: OS X vs. Windows vs. Linux
As mentioned last week when publishing the OS X 10.8 vs. Ubuntu Linux benchmarks, a large Intel OpenGL driver performance comparison was being carried out at Phoronix. The comparison is now compete and here are the results when comparing the Intel HD OpenGL graphics performance under Apple OS X 10.8, Microsoft Windows 7 Pro, and Ubuntu Linux 12.04/12.10. The results of this Intel OpenGL gaming performance comparison are quite interesting, but reveal some troubling Linux facts.
OSS-driver Team son of a lesser god even in intel?
So far for the many praises on Intel about their friendliness on open source.
They have the tech and SW know-how to make their HW go 50% faster and openGL 4.0 compliant, but they use it only on Windows...
Maybe I'm a little bit harsh, and Ok, great job to the OTC, but just like for AMD: couldn't the OSS-driver team be helped internally more?
IP to defend? on AMD side maybe, but come on, on HD3000....
Anyway, it slowly and constantly progresses. At least there's a hope , unlike the perspectives on future we had 5 years ago.
And the collaboration with Valve should pay
