Intel Linux Driver Performance Still Slower Than Windows 7


Intel Haswell benchmarks between Windows and Linux are still forthcoming and will hopefully be published next week. It's taken some time due to single-handedly already running many Haswell benchmarks and then most recently by losing the Windows disc and having to order a new Windows 8 DVD. Having a clean Windows installation still on an ASUS Ultrabook with Intel Core i3 "Ivy Bridge" processor, this week I did some new tests of Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu 13.10.

Windows 7 x64 was tested with its latest GL4-capable Intel Windows driver that was version 15.31.9.3165 and was released in May. On the Linux side, Ubuntu 13.10 x86_64 was tested in its current development state with the Linux 3.10 kernel and Mesa 9.1.4. The Ubuntu Linux installation was then upgraded to the Linux 3.11 Git kernel and Mesa 9.2-devel.
