Fedora 13 Alpha Benchmarks
Phoronix: Fedora 13 Alpha Benchmarks
Following the release of Fedora 13 Alpha this week we delivered Intel graphics benchmarks looking at the performance of an Intel Atom Netbook using the very latest kernel, DRM, and Mesa packages that Fedora is known for carrying. There are regressions in the Intel stack worth noting, but in this article, we are continuing in our Fedora 13 benchmarking by looking at the general system performance of the Linux desktop.
Do you still have the results from Alpha 1 on previous Fedora releases?

+1 This should be done, would be like comparing apples to apples.

So take performance impact benchmarks with a pinch of a salt or even more than a pinch :-)
