Phoronix: Intel Haswell HD Graphics 4600 vs. AMD Radeon Graphics On Linux
Already published on Phoronix have been Intel HD Graphics 4600 benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux from the Intel Core i7 4770K "Haswell" processor and compared against previous generations of Intel HD Graphics. Being benchmarked today is the Intel HD Graphics 4600 on Linux compared against various AMD Radeon graphics cards using both the open and closed-source graphics drivers.
Great article! Its nice to see how the OSS radeon gfx are fast approaching speed parity with the closed-source solution. One thing that would be interesting is a compatibility test between OSS & Closed Drivers on Radeon. On Ubuntu 13.04, I tried the OSS drivers on my 4670 card, and was very dismayed that many games were just not compatible with it (ie. would crash or just not load), especially many of the HiB games as well as many Wine games.
Beautifu, thanksl! I know you don't have an a10-6800k handy, but i would be nice to compare Haswell against with the Radeon HD 7660D from the AMD APUs, perhaps against the a10-5800k. Same thing: open source and closed source, for Catalyst
It is great to see how the open source stack progressed for AMD, though Intel is ways ahead (it is fast, and rich in features, I think that made my choice for my next processor, since I only need moderate graphics, and an APU is enough - i5 haswell seems to hit the spot for me).
