    Default Image Quality: Intel Ivy Bridge vs. Radeon Gallium3D

    Phoronix: Image Quality: Intel Ivy Bridge vs. Radeon Gallium3D

    Aside from all the Linux gaming news this week, the past few days were also particularly exciting due to Intel's launch of the much-anticipated Ivy Bridge processor line-up. There were launch-day Linux benchmarks of the Intel Core i7 3770K on Phoronix plus many more articles are currently in the publishing pipeline...

    I agree comparing image quality is something that's not very interesting. But I'd love to see opengl performance comparisons for windows 7 and linux. I know that previous Intel drivers were significantly better on windows than on linux, but now times have changed, so a new comparison is something that we should definitely see.

    And I'm sure other people will also be interested in other articles.

    The Win comparison is already mentioned in the articles...

    - A comparison of the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge OpenGL graphics performance under Microsoft Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Linux.

    1) Render
    2) Save the rendering in a lossless format
    3) Use a image diff'ing tool

    Only if you really have a point to make about rendering differences product of something like a bug or overall testing for regressions for example . Of course, the comparison is legit as long as you take care that the renderings are THE SAME (same shaders, textures, and such) ... maybe apitrace could help with that?
    Otherwise than that, this entire article is simply a waste of time for readers (if no point is made)

    Regards.

    It's already doing that and you can look at a image diff by running the result through phoronix-test-suite analyze-image-delta, etc.
