    Definitely noticed that. I was a bit shocked/impressed as well. I mean radeon is pretty decent for an OSS gfx driver, but that result was surely, unexpected (for most people) i would tend to think.

    That's the big news! In some tests (Nexuiz, Xonotic, even OpenArena), the free driver is becoming really competitive. And some of the optimizations have still not landed...

    Probably they spend more time on PR than coding...

    No, they're not gnome devs and I'm not sure what you mean. Do you consider it's fair to compare desktops with differnt options?

    Thanks for the numbers. Looks like Unity's performance on nVidia is quite acceptable for gaming.

    Does seem to be any significant difference between Unity/Gnome/XFCE/LXDE/KDE on intel and non-free amd and nvidia. Only on the free drivers is there some issues....

    Composition doesn't seem to be bad unless your driver is bad.

    Default cool benchmark

    im suprised that unity is finally comparable now, amd and intel are of course being the bad ones (and i dont know why your using linux with their drivers anyways)

    kde looks to be on the decline just a bit, i have not noticed any difference between it and the gnome-shells really, but it just seems to be regressing just the slightest on nvidia cards

    not that it matters, i like kde because its the most fully featured, and can easily switch out to lxde if i want raw performance
    lukubuntu would be the best distribution ever...

    EDIT:


    ha ha, you were few minutes faster on posting exactly same thing I was thinking
    I wonder how much NVIDIA has paid Michael for those precise and fair tests in his article

    Also why test modern GPU with old, OpenGL 2.0 games when you got Serious Sam, TF2 and Unigine Heaven out there... WTF

    Feel free to publish some tests proving him wrong.
