would you think the bad rsults in cpu-intensive bentmarks is due to this?
the more cpu-intensive, the worse it gets.

Just the inability to install a game. You can install games on Linux using a program, such as Wine, but it is far from an optimal situation.

Who said anything about Linux ? Demand more from software people and hardware companies ! Opensourcing driver code would be a good start ! or the proposed BSD rosetta driver architecture.

I suppose if you were comparing Intel to AMD,but it was a Win7 vs. Win8 slide,you think they would be using the same configuration with AMD CPU's in both systems.
EDIT- I guess I'm looking past the fact that Win8 has more efficient schedulers that would allow more CPU usage to go to the game,however with just one FPS result listed,it is hard to tell because 2 of those games are only a few FPS difference.

An even better benchmark is, y'know, the actual programs, even if the Linux benchmarks are more fair (And yes, I read them because I run Linux so it applies to me) it still doesn't show real world performance, which is whats most important in the end.

If I run WinRAR, lame, oggenc, GCC and handbrake as CPU intensive loads (Other than games), then I'll check those. If they're faster because Intels compiler cheats...Well, they're still faster, aren't they? It's completely stupid that Intel goes via the CPU brand rather than the flags, but still, what can ya do?

In terms of price performance, it actually is...Athlon II quad and a roughly 9600GT level GPU for ~AU$200 (Including decently fast RAM) would be hard to beat on the used market.

Also, that's what he was referring to, not the performance as a whole.

the more cpu-intensive a workload is, the more the borked win7 scheduler comes into play.

im installing win8.
I've long been using Linux for anything that runs on it and uses my CPU, Linux's CPU scheduler is far superior.

VMWare? Don't you mean wine? True enough though, RAGE is going to Linux in 2012 apparently, but other than that the only games I run in wine are ones that actually run better in Linux than Windows. (Sims 3 is a great example here, there's the occasional small graphical glitch that happens for a split second, but other than that it runs quite a bit faster and lags less)

ICC is a biased compiler, but that doesn't mean you should disregard any applications that are compiled using it...Look at real world applications only, and those that either are the same as something you do or are a program you use, that's the most realistic you can get and it's the only way to gauge a CPUs performance.

No no no no I didn't mean codename, I mean like "Phenom" or "Athlon".

My knowledge on that subject is a bit limited, but I would assume you would need an alternative to DX to get it to work. Or is that an alternative itself? Google helps nothing in this situation.

I would love to debate your claim, but that's a little hard to do when I completely agree. I'm just saying that if you must use benchmarks, Linux benchmarks are the best to use.

Wow, no replacement for Direct X, what a shame.

Direct X API is allot of the reason games aren't progressing.
