When running some OpenGL performance benchmarks this week of the Radeon driver using “drm-next” code that’s set to be merged into the Linux 3.8 kernel, some significant performance improvements were discovered thanks to AMD’s code contribution. Curious to see if the Intel graphics performance is likely to change, I also ran some drm-next Linux benchmarks from an Intel Sandy Bridge system…
Recently I showed off some Intel DRM benchmarks from the Linux 3.3 kernel along with what will be in the Linux 3.4 kernel via drm-next. These results indicated some performance improvements on the side of Intel Sandy Bridge hardware, but how do the new kernel and Linux 3.4 impact the discrete Radeon graphics? Here’s some benchmarks covering that side of the graphics table.
