Ubuntu 12.10 Is Faster With Intel Hardware


While benchmarks have already indicated ARM performance improvements in Ubuntu 12.10, early testing of this "Quantal Quetzal" release has also revealed that Intel hardware is benefiting too from performance optimizations for this Linux operating system update due out in October.

In this article are benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS vs. Ubuntu 12.10 2012-08-13 on a CompuLab Intense-PC. The Intense-PC, which will be reviewed on Phoronix in the near future, comes from the same Israeli manufacturer that put out the Fit-PC2 and Tegra 2 Trim-Slice. The Intense-PC is based upon Intel's Ivy Bridge micro-architecture with their compelling integrated graphics found on a low-power Core i7 processor. The hardware making up the Intense-PC is quite interesting while being within a very small form factor. The PC is also Linux-friendly and shipped with Linux Mint.
