Hey,

So I stumbled across this bench marking software on some gaming boards I am a part of this evening - and lo and behold it has a native Linux client. My Sager notebook performs alright - how does your system hold up?

http://unigine.com/download/

Also I am curious - would someone who also multi-boots with Vista and 7 mind running the benchmark on all three and seeing how they compare?

My scores -

37 and 44 FPS? If so nice! What driver version are you using?

And a week really isn't that old...

Yep: those P-T-S benches are surprisingly good & repeatable. Must use the "terminal" commands version as the PTS-gui locks up my system. I'm using the 190.xx NV driver.

BTW: I score ~ 16 sec in superPI: no big deal tho my CPU doesn't appear to want to leave 800 MHz. GOOGLE-Earth does make it work!

Looking at your stats, do you have Vsync turned on cause it looks like they are both stopping around 60 fps?

Haha I was wondering if you had it turned it on, cause it looks like it is.

Go into your terminal and type sudo nvidia-settings and check opengl settings to see if its on.

It wasn't on, so I turned it on. Do I have to restart X if I do?

To be honest I don't really know, but restarting X is probably a nice fail-safe.

Significant drop in performance it seems. Maybe it's because the program didn't force compiz to quit this time.

Gents:

I recently updated to KK_9.1 giving a different NV_190.xx driver ... generally speaking my PTS scores are **down** about 10%.

For example my unigine: tropics/sanctuary --> 35/41 down from 37/45.

~Jeff

um... was he using the correct driver?

oh... he was...



(Running the latest stable nVidia driver on both Linux (190.42) and Windows (195.62)).

latest from nvidia website for Gforce GTX 260: 190.53
latest for windows: 195.62


Im beginning to wonder the reliability of the test.

Know any other cross platform bench-marking softwares out there? I'd be more than happy to give a few others a try... From what I can see though Unigine is a solid company and the benchmarks are professionally done.

it's not the benchmark program. It's the driver.

the repos is just to make your life easier.
If you want latest driver you go to the nvidia website. If you dont do the same on both systems then it's not a fair outcome. The outcome will be similar as it is now, but not as much.
All in all you aren't really putting the system to the test but the drivers. And we all know how great the driver support is ^^


So if you got your windows driver by the windows repo, then fine... do the same in ubuntu, but if you got it from the nvidia website do it on both systems.

Both drivers where gotten from the nVidia website and the test was run using the latest (stable) driver on both platforms.

I enjoy Ubuntu/Linux much more than Windows myself - but in the case of 3D the numbers speak for themselves. Linux just can't compete quite yet.

If you're running the test on Windows, make sure you go into the settings panel and change the rendering method to OpenGL, otherwise it isn't fair test.

~JeffThis test should not consider Ubuntu/Linux' performance.

Second Life runs faster on Linux on my machine than Windows 7 by almost 50%.

Of course I ran it on Windows using OpenGL... Check the link I posted a few back. It details everything, in short though with this bench mark my Windows 7 averaged around 100% higher FPS than Ubuntu did on the same settings...

Benchmarks/videos of the second life running quicker?

~JeffNot possible to prove it since I no longer use Windows.

If you don't believe me then that's fine, even though these two benchmarks do not reflect real-world performance (3DMark is the same - it's score does not provide an accurate measure of how well your games/software will run).
