    Unity 6.8 poor performance

    Hi, I'm playing around with the 12.10 on my Q6600 OC'd to 3.0ghz and I've noticed that Unity is really sluggish. Now I know my CPU is getting a little long in the tooth but it shouldn't have problems with Ubuntu. I thought Unity 6.8 was supposed to increase performance? Would installing the AMD proprietary drivers help anything? Thanks.

    First of all, the Unity performance does NOT depend on your CPU.
    What GPU do you have?

    Replacing the open-source radeon drivers with the proprietary one's should make a big difference in speed...

    On my acer aspire 1410 I get 20 seconds from gtkperf using 100 test rounds.

    How does this compare.

    Unity itself seems a little slower but applications like games seem to run much better. I am using the proprietary ATI drivers on an HP DV6 laptop.

    On my Intel based box, see signature, I get using gtkperf 3.1 with the default OpenGL CCSM setting on 12.10; 4.6 on 12.04. Removing the default settings, gtkperf is 2.89 on 12.10. (Didn't test for 12.04.)

    I would say Unity keeps getting quicker, at least with Intel video graphics.
