Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux Gaming Performance - tech
(hx) 03:42 AM EST - Feb,14 2017 - Post a comment / read (1)
The chaps overa t Phoronix have posted an article comparing gaming performance between Windows 10 and Ubuntu Linux on Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 and 1080 GPU's. It seems like not so long ago we were hearing from Valve, that they anticipated their Source engine based games to, in many cases, perform better under Linux than they do in Windows. The results today, however, show that performance under Linux in modern titles has not lived up to this promise. Here's an excerpt:
Overall, these NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060/1080 Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux gaming benchmarks ended up being quite interesting. In many of the higher-profile games ported to Linux by independent studios, the performance under Linux was only 60~70% of the Windows 10 performance. That's even for games that were released for Linux more than one year ago and has seen driver optimizations, post-release patches, etc. Most Linux gamers who dual-boot complain of newer Linux games performing slower than Windows and this is largely confirmed by our results.

But not all hope is lost. As shown with some tests like Total War: WARHAMMER and Metro Last Light Redux, there are also good ports that perform very close to the Windows numbers. Our tests like Unigine and OpenArena also show that Linux's OpenGL performance can meet/exceed the OpenGL performance offered on Windows.

The Talos Principle results were also interesting perspective and show hope for the future with the Vulkan performance coming out ahead of the OpenGL renderer. Additionally, the Vulkan Windows vs. Linux results were very close.

Steambox was/is a failure. Good idea but once the price tag was put on I think everyone realised it was all BS, including me. I tried to stay positive and considered one for a bit but just didn't make sense. Linux sucks, game devs for the most part couldn't give a shit about Linux. It's about Windows and that's it, sadly.
