Re: [Fedora-marketing-list] Benchmark Vista / Fedora /Unbutu

I also read here http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/01/17/gameplay-only-gets-worse-with-vista/ about Vista driver´s problems that arent yet ready.
Anyways, I also think the aero interface would supose negative performance, so turning it off before playing would be ideal.

Interesting results, albeit, the UT2004 wasn't an Apples-to-Apples (pun
intended) comparison, as the Windows version was ran with the DirectX
renderer instead of the OpenGL one (as evidenced by the huge leap in
performance), which is the one used on Linux, it would be much more
acurate to see one with OpenGL on the Windows version. However the ATi
driver isn't what you'd call a speeder either, and it apparently isn't
so too in Windows, at least for OpenGL, nevertheless, these are
interesting results... Also was Aero enabled for the tests? Aero has a
DirectX context opened at all times, so DirectX apps will obviously run
faster than OpenGL (a secondary API running at the same time as Aero,
which might explain the poor OpenGL performance)
