    The above was with driver nvidia-current.

    Below is with nouveau-firmware.

    Both test cases done with lighdm and ccsm on.

    According to gtkperf, nouveau renders approximately 12 second increase in performance.

    If you're going to compare nouveau to nvidia in 2d perf then you should check & see if nvidia is using 'Adaptive Performance'
    If so then set nvidia to 'Prefer Max..' first, then rerun test
    (if nvidia is on level 0 at start of test in adaptive mode then generally won't upclock till the scroll test

    (while I don't put much stock in gtkperf at least here nvidia in Max is about 50% faster than nouveau. (11.13 vs. 5.81 on a fairly old 8200m laptop

    Very well.. I will try/do that. The reason I drew these compares is to attempt to document my declarations that unity is faster than normal. Also .. I do not know of any other testing tool that will adequately test Unity3D performance so then I have to assume that gtkperf results lends credence to some reasonable facsimile thereof. Simply running system monitor and taking eye_shots of compiz effects does not adequately present any hard data - and then now gtkperf is questionable? So how do we aquire an adequate , comprehensive and trustworthy chart of Unity 3D performance?

    Savings of another 7 seconds to complete that test with Max setting nvidia-current.

    Here are gtkperf results with SNA initialized on Intel graphics.

    I don't see it as faster than Unity in 12.10:

    GtkPerf 0.40 - Starting testing: Thu Jan 10 15:42:52 2013

    GtkEntry - time: 0.02
    GtkComboBox - time: 0.76

    GtkSpinButton - time: 0.05
    GtkProgressBar - time: 0.15
    GtkToggleButton - time: 0.35
    GtkCheckButton - time: 0.06
    GtkRadioButton - time: 0.09

    This is about the same I get in 12.10, 3.80 or so.

    Here are the non "sna" results. Also I think that this test is unique to raring.

    gtkperf with "uxa"

    GtkRadioButton - time: 0.61
    GtkTextView - Add text - time: 1.88
    GtkTextView - Scroll - time: 0.38
    GtkDrawingArea - Lines - time: 4.96
    GtkDrawingArea - Circles - time: 5.35
    GtkDrawingArea - Text - time: 5.97
    GtkDrawingArea - Pixbufs - time: 1.70

    Gosh, you have about the same quickness as my Dell netbook, mini-10n. Unity is okay there but I don't do graphic design with such a slow box. <smile>

    I must apologize for being off topic on myself. That test refers to another machine (intel graphics) running a test requested in another thread .. so I had thought I would put the results here. it is a little slower than other boxes I have but it is 64bit intel and I like to experiment with it.

    Re: Unity faster than normal?

    I'm guessing the increase in speed for some people is largely driver improvements.

    I'm seeing the same slowdowns with the Unity Plugin and the Dash that I have seen in the past. Dash is missing the first character(s) I type sometimes (Synapse doesn't miss anything, on the same hardware), and window movements/animations are dropping more frames than Compiz+XFCE. My GPU isn't benefiting from the driver improvements we've seen recently.
