NVIDIA OpenGL: Windows 10 Pro vs. Ubuntu Linux Benchmarks

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

Published yesterday was a test of Intel Skylake graphics on Ubuntu 15.10 vs. Windows 10 with a focus on the OpenGL performance. In today's article is a similar cross-operating-system comparison but this time being featured are three NVIDIA graphics cards to see how the latest NVIDIA drivers are running.

Intel Skylake Graphics: Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux Performance

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

This article is an OpenGL performance comparison between Windows 10 Pro x64 and Ubuntu 15.10 when upgrading to the very latest open-source graphics driver stack. Atop Ubuntu 15.10 was the upgrade to the Linux 4.3.0 stable kernel and also switching to Mesa 11.1-devel Git using the Padoka PPA. On the Windows side, the latest Intel 20.19.15.4300 graphics driver was used for benchmarking this Skylake system.

Antergos, Manjaro, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora & OpenSUSE Performance Showdown

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

This is a larger and more interesting comparison than the Linux distro comparison of September plus the fact that all stable Linux distributions are now in use thanks to a lot of distributions having put out their Q4 updates recently.

OpenSUSE 42.1, Fedora Workstation 23, Ubuntu 15.10, Antergos 2015.10-Rolling, Debian 8.2, CentOS 7, and Manjaro 15.11 were all cleanly installed on the same system and carried out a variety of benchmarks to measure their out-of-the-box performance across multiple subsystems.

Linux

While the DRM-Next pull request hasn't even been issued yet for the Linux 4.4 merge window, AMD's Alex Deucher has already sent in some extra fixes for the AMDGPU DRM kernel driver.

AMD already sent in their Stoney APU support and various other improvements last month for their Radeon and AMDGPU DRM kernel graphics drivers. Sent in today by Alex are some fixes.

Graphics/Benchmarks

Following yesterday's article about openSUSE 42.1 Leap being tweaked for better out-of-the-box performance, I ran some benchmarks on the officially-released openSUSE 42.1 to compare it to the older benchmarks I did when Leap was still under development.

Linux 4.2 Ubuntu 15.10 HDD Tests: XFS Leads Over EXT4, Btrfs

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

With recently having picked up four Western Digital Black HDDs, I decided to run some fresh hard drive benchmarks with the most common Linux file-systems to see how the performance compares atop Ubuntu 15.10.

NVIDIA Benchmarks Of NWI's Insurgency FPS Game On Linux

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

The benchmarks are only for some NVIDIA GPUs this time around since while AMD Catalyst should run fine for this game considering it's using the Source Engine, the Catalyst driver is having issues. The game runs fine with the NVIDIA proprietary driver but on this Ubuntu 15.10 system when launching the game with Catalyst 15.9, the screen appears only briefly before returning to the desktop while the Insurgency game process remains alive. Due to that issue blocking the benchmarks from happening, it was just a NVIDIA comparison today.

An Initial Look At The Intel Iris Gallium3D Driver Performance

One of the most exciting developments in the open-source Intel driver space this year was the Iris Gallium3D driver taking shape as what's destined to eventually succeed their "classic" i965 Mesa driver. With Iris Gallium3D maturing, here's a look at how the performance currently stacks up to their mature OpenGL driver. The Intel Iris Gallium3D driver is designed for Skylake (potentially Broadwell too) support and newer generations while being a forward-looking driver and utilizes their mature NIR compiler support. Iris holds much more performance potential than their classic Mesa driver albeit the developers haven't really taken to performance optimizations yet but rather getting the driver up and running, eliminating test suite failures, and getting to the point of feature parity with the i965 driver.
