    Default 2D Performance Is Improving For Ubuntu 13.10 XMir

    Phoronix: 2D Performance Is Improving For Ubuntu 13.10 XMir

    While the OpenGL gaming performance on XMir/Mir was recently made faster thanks to composite bypass support being committed, the feature doesn't help out non-full-screen applications for rendering faster. To see where the current 2D Linux desktop performance is on Ubuntu 13.10 when using Intel graphics and enabling XMir and the Unity System Compositor, here are some new benchmarks...

    So before this devolves into the usual mess...

    I am impressed by the improvement. If it is also stable and eliminates screen tearing, I may start using this soon.

    I would still like to see what the performance of steam apps under xmir is, anyone have a benchmark yet?

    Those results looks really nice. XMir is really close to pure X from performance point of view and we have access to native Mir where performance should be better than X and tearing will gone.

    it seems that at this time XMir is more mature than XWayland, would like to see XMir running rootless.
