Steam for Linux

Real performance number Linux vs Windows
First my system spec:

I5 2500K
GTX 670
8 Gb ram

I was curious to test my machine in both OS, to see the performance difference.
I first try Euro Truck Simulator 2, it has both DX and Opengl support for Windows, and a beta client for Linux.

In DX on Windows i got 110 fps, in Opengl on Windows 60-70 fps, Linux performance 35-40 fps.
Then i try Unigine Valley, a very new benchmark, in Windows Dx11 i scored 1700 points, in Windows Opengl 1500, in Linux 1450.

Can you tell us which driver you're using?
With Unigine Test I have EXACTLY the same results on Windows and Linux on my both computers.
All Source-Engine based - same (L4D2 getting FPS even lil more), SSAM3 - FPS on Linux just slightly less. "Killing Floor" - very bad performance.

Driver on Windows: 320.14
Driver on Linux: 319.17

Windows 8 64 bit
Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit

Yes Unigine performance are very good, only 3% different in Opengl, but not in pair with Dx11 in my system.
I think that drivers side there are a lot of work to do to optimize, i'm courious to see a comparsion in Oil Rush game, but i don't have it :(
1700 are quite good numbers, btw.
i3, GTX550Ti, 4 Gb RAM - 933 pts only, using DX11 (min FPS - 7, max - 70) and 809 using OpenGL (min FPS - 15, max - 58), 807 pts in Linux (driver 319.17)

It would be nice to also see some Wine performance comparison added.

Did a Win 7 vs. Linux comparison a while ago too. Basically same performance with NVIDIA.

I don't have Windows to compare against but I did test in Linux and I can say that it would appear this test truly is pushing mostly the GPU. Our systems are pretty different except for the GPU:

i7 3770
16GB Memory
GTX 670 4GB

I scored 1434: http://www.huntsvegas.org/bench/Unigine_Valley_Benchmark_1.0_20130522_1146.html

I expect whenever developers start to develop their games for OpenGL before D3D, and unleash OpenGL's potential, this will change.. maybe drastically even.

Throwing some OSX vs Windows numbers in for Unigine...

It's the same result, Unigine is GPU oriented, and the opengl performance are very good.
The problem is in other games, Euro Truck Simulation 2 runs in Linux with the same performance i got in my Notebook with an old 4650 mobile.
What i think it's that if Valve wants to promote Linux as a better OS for gaming we need more support and the same performance with the same hardware or Better ;)
