    Default Linux 3.2 Kernel Benchmarks

    Phoronix: Linux 3.2 Kernel Benchmarks

    Following last week's release of the Linux 3.2 kernel, here is a round-up of Linux 3.2 kernel benchmarks. Also included are a new set of kernel benchmarks comparing the 3.2 kernel to older releases while running Intel's blazing fast Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition CPU.

    Default Explanation???

    Could someone explain/give a hint as to why there is such a dramatic fps boost from the 2.6.39 to 3.0 kernel for some games?

    Default It's will or without bigalloc?

    It's will or without bigalloc of ext4 (cluster mode)? Because it's important feature, mainly on ssd.

    I think there were some video driver changes that make the difference.

    The benchmark pages says

    2.6.39-020639-generic
    3.0.0-0300-generic
    3.1.0-030100-generic
    3.2.0-030200-generic

    Is there any reason for not using the up-to-date kernels like 3.0.16/3.1.8 or is that just some weird Ubuntu naming scheme?

    Ubuntu tends to backport changes + their own patches to kernels rather than use the latest version.

    I think it's more likely he took those versions from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
    Those are vanilla + basic ubuntu patches, afaik. Hence EoD_'s questions stands.
