as i remember i didnt installed any driver for integrated graphics,only have nvidia adrivers for gtx 760,version 37.0.1 is working normaly 38.0.1 and 39.0 are crashing when i open youtube,where i can see if drivers for integrated graphic are installed??in programs-uninstall program i dont see them.

 

You could try the test build. Does it make any difference?

The only optimisation I could imagine happening for AMD processors is this flag. I don't see how that'll make any difference on AMD CPUs, I'm confident ICL will still generate faster code for AMD CPUs that MSVC will.

I've made sure to not use any flags that put AMD users at a disadvantage :-) in fact AMD users should benefit from all the flags I've used.

Test build is available here, final build either today or tomorrow

If you think it's worth it, I could run a Phenom II X4 945 head to head with a Core 2 Quad Q6700 and see if WF behaves noticeably differently on them. Be a bit of a weekend project though tongue.gif

you can't change the memory cache now. You can put the disk cache in a ramdisk (imdisk is the best, setting allocation dynamic and 1Go) for the best improvement. thumb.gif

Based on Wikipedia's entry on browser benchmarking, I decided on the following tests:
  1. Futuremark Peacekeeper
  2. Octane 2.0
  3. Speedbattle
  4. Wirple

First test system using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with updates slipstreamed in. I didn't tweak very much, and only installed Waterfox 40.0.2 on it. I set the browser to auto-clear cache, cookies, etc on exit so there wouldn't be any "browser cruft" slipping in when I would rerun the browser on each test.
  • Phenom II X4 945 at stock 3.0 GHz speed
  • 4 gigs DDR2-800
  • Samsung 931BF monitor (native resolution 1280x1024)
  • eVGA Geforce 9800GT, full specs below from the nVidia System Information section:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit (Service Pack 1)
DirectX version: 11.0
GPU processor: GeForce 9800 GT
Driver version: 341.81
Direct3D API version: 10
CUDA Cores: 112
Core clock: 600 MHz
Shader clock: 1500 MHz
Memory data rate: 1800 MHz
Memory interface: 256-bit
Total available graphics memory: 2303 MB
Dedicated video memory: 512 MB GDDR3
System video memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 1791 MB
Video BIOS version: 62.92.69.00.30

What I found was that the nVidia-supplied video driver is absolutely needed to run WebGL (Windows 7's built-in WDDM driver is insufficient), and it does improve HTML5 benchmark results.

Image-heavy segment follows - first batch is with the Windows 7 WDDM driver as of 2009:




Second batch is with the most recent released Geforce driver 341.81:




Next set of test results will be with a Core 2 Quad Q6700 after I transplant the GPU into it and get 4 gigs into that as well.

anyone else having issues with playing 4k video on youtube with waterfox? all versions including last one 40?
when I open 4k video on edge for example, win10 it plays smooth.
but within waterfox is chopy and freezing all the time.
any idea?

Waterfox is horribly slow for me on Facebook. i basically have to use Chromium for Facebook and WF for everything else.

Thank you MrAlex. Waterfox 40.0.2 is working well on the 2 computers I have installed it on.
One was from the downloaded installer and the other I ran the update.
No issues so far.

Glad I'm not the only one, I've mentioned it before, it really ticks me off since I have to switch to Chrome which I hate using.
