Title: Ubuntu 13.04 Will Improve Gaming On Open-Source GPU Drivers ( -at -)


Direct Link: http://www.phoronix.com/vr.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."
