    Default Intel Linux Driver Performance Still Slower Than Windows 7

    Phoronix: Intel Linux Driver Performance Still Slower Than Windows 7

    Benchmarks published this week on Phoronix showed that Ubuntu 13.10 can outperform Apple OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" with regard to OpenGL performance. However, when compared to Microsoft Windows, the open-source Intel Linux driver continues to come up short.

    Stop using ubuntu to test the drivers.
    It was already proved that Xmir reduce the performance, then why you still use the worst DE for testing the drivers?

    maybe because is the future?!

    until brings all features like windows mesa drivers will be a "little" worst than windows. the evolution says Mesa intel needs one more year to catch up windows on perfomance

    In looking at the OpenGL frame latency, Ubuntu Linux required more time to prepare each frame than Microsoft Windows 7.
    Would using straight Mir or Wayland increase the performance at all? I was thinking that maybe they would require less time to prepare/render each frame than X.org

    Default Ubuntu does not want to be Linux

    It is slowly deprecating itself out. Unity, Mir, and others, Ubuntu is becoming it's own unique enclave.

    Phoronix should recognize this and stop benchmarking with Ubuntu.

    Or, stop calling Phoronix a Linux website - and start calling Phoronix an Ubuntu website.

    And before the flames come my way, I'm not trying to ostracise Ubuntu. Ubuntu is ostracizing Ubuntu. I'm just recognizing it. They don't want to be with us. It is what it is.

    Phoronix must start using the most advanced real Linux destro -=Fedora=-. As they have a GPU-drivers PPA (debian), they must have another for Fedora (rpm).

    Isn't Ubuntu much more user-friendly both to install and use than other distros? GNOME-buntu here . The reason I use Ubuntu's because I know that most other computer illiterate people will prefer it. I do use MATE 1.4 btw.(1.6 sucks)

    It certainly makes sense. I really don't care which LINUX that Larabel chooses to use, but at this point it's fairly obvious that Ubuntu wants to go off and do it's own thing. It doesn't want to be a Linux. Would Larabel constantly benchmark and use Android as his base and then still claim to be a Linux site? Technically, he could get away with it. He could also get away with using MacOS as his base and calling his website a BSD website. But people do not run around calling MacOS "BSD", they don't run around calling Android "Linux", and Ubuntu is putting itself in this same category. It's not Linux. It's Ubuntu. It's not BSD, it's MacOS. It's not Linux, it's Android. It's not Linux, it's Ubuntu.

    I use Fedora specifically because of Fedora's graphics stack, BTW. So I would have a preference in that direction, but any Linux that actually wants to be a Linux is just fine.

    I'll give you an example: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTQxNTc

    Canonical submitted 15 patches to Mesa for Mir.

    WHEN HAS CANONICAL EVER PUT FORTH PATCHES FOR MESA OR XORG OR ANY OTHER PROJECT?!?! WTF!

    Now sure, I'm confident that one patch happened 4 years ago blah blah blah, so what? Canonical is notoriously uninterested in being an upstream partner like Redhat, Arch, Mint, Debian, Gentoo, and (I do honestly mean to name every one of them but I know I'll make the post unreadable). But you get the point.

    Now that it suits Canonical they submit patches? WTF. They're leeches. They're parasites.

    They so rarely contribute back to the projects that they take advantage of, that it was actually a headliner:

    And here's how it opens:

    While Canonical is known -- and commonly criticized -- for not investing in making heavy, low-level upstream Linux contributions,

    No, you benchmark the most used distro, since thats the one people care the most about.

    Don't like it? Come up with a more popular distribution.

    Meanwhile: *buntus are still the best compromise around. You can always use Xubuntu and disable compositing, you know.

    To the post above: Fedora isn't better either in terms of gaming peformance. The DE/WM does it, not the distro.
