Qt/GTK Speed On Unity/KDE/Xfce/LXDE/GNOME/Razor
Phoronix: Qt/GTK Speed On Unity/KDE/Xfce/LXDE/GNOME/Razor
Shared earlier today were OpenGL game benchmarks under different Linux desktops. Now to complement those earlier results are 2D performance tests under Unity, KDE, GNOME Shell, Xfce, LXDE, and Razor-qt...
Performance of desktop environments
I would like to see benchmarks of Steam games (Half Life, Serious Sam3, Team Fortress 2, ...) for different desktop environments, especially Unity, Gnome, KDE and LXDE.
From my experience, Unity is the desktop that give the lowest fps for any OpenGL game.
As these games are mostly available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS, it may also be a good benchmark to compare graphics drivers for all 3 platforms.
