    Default 11-Way Linux, BSD Platform Comparison

    Phoronix: 11-Way Linux, BSD Platform Comparison

    Building upon last month's eight-way Linux vs. BSD operating system comparison, out today is an expanded 11-way OS showdown. The new OS test results available are for the Arch-based Manjaro Linux distribution, Debian GNU/Linux, and Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. The other competitors include PC-BSD, DragonFlyBSD, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Mageia, and openSUSE.

    In the Xonotic low benchmark, half of them are stuck at just nearly 60 FPS.
    Forget to turn off vsync?

    Agreed.. Half of the results are stuck at just below 60fps, and then there's one at 120fps. While PTS usually does what it can to disable vsync, it seems that it's possible that this game is still finding a way to sync to vblank.

    Nice test.

    Would be nice to see illumos, OpenIndiana, or OpenSXCE (OpenSolaris) and Windows 8 or 2012 thrown in the mix.

    Default And where are some competitors in last benchmarks?

    I fail to see 11 competitors in last benchmarks. Yet no comments. I can imagine BSDs were out of luck for gaming and multimedia due to crappy video drivers. But why there was no pgbench? Have all BSDs failed it as well? Or someting?

    This is a nice view of the results, sorted by efficiency and normalized

    Michael, if you are reading, I left a note on the last PTS release article's thread. There is a bug in the computation of geometric mean, where is it doesn't make sense when some of the tests are of the type "less is better"

    I too would be interested in more *BSD systems as well as some of the Illumos-based distributions.
