At Phoronix we have posted a new article. A link to this from your
site's news section would be greatly appreciated.

Title: Ubuntu 13.04 Will Improve Gaming On Open-Source GPU Drivers ( -at -)
Direct Link: http://www.phoronix.....php?view=18417
Summary: "While still a ways from being comparable to the proprietary
graphics drivers in terms of features and OpenGL performance, the
open-source GPU drivers found by default in the forthcoming Ubuntu 13.04
release are a big improvement over the out-of-the-box graphics drivers
found in earlier Ubuntu Linux releases. The Ubuntu desktop is also
faster thanks to improvements to its Unity desktop environment and
Compiz compositing window manager. In this article are Linux gaming
benchmarks looking at the performance of Fedora 17, Fedora 18, Ubuntu
12.10, and a preliminary Ubuntu 13.04 development snapshot. In this
first article, the OpenGL performance of Intel and Radeon graphics are
being benchmarked."
