Phoronix: Intel Sandy Bridge On Fedora 15 Is Decent
For those Intel "Sandy Bridge" hardware customers that may be trying out the recent release of Fedora 15, the experience is decent and is in much better shape than the troubling support in Ubuntu 11.04. It is not in tip-top shape as there are some recent optimizations in the Linux kernel and Mesa that haven't landed in Fedora 15 (at least not yet in the form of an update), but it's suitable overall.
Pardon my ignorance, or perhaps my blindness but what is "Linux" in the graphs?
"t0", leetspeak to gather new audiences?
Is there any chance to add WebGL benchmarks/tests to your suit?
WebGL experiments like Google Body Browser and ro.me are very interesting. They work fine in my Ubuntu 10.10 with Nvidia card and drivers.
As far as I know, there is no 'good' way at this point in time to get the WebGL results from the browser itself into the Phoronix Test Suite client in an automated manner without doing things manually or perhaps doing some ugly browser hacks.

Ubuntu 11.04 + Kernel 2.6.39 + Mesa compiled from Git + xorg-edgers PPA. From TFA and my guesses.

Thanks for setting the record straight, Michael!
So the mesa in updates-testing is pretty close to master, it must be some overhead in the Fedora kernel or mesa packages that is causing it to be slower.
I worked out why we don't get git-sha1, we just build a tarball straight from git then build that package from that, so we never get the sha1s.
