[Gaming] L4D 2, Linux vs Windows, performance comparison.


Hello guys! Today I have prepared a comparison of performance in L4D 2 on Windows and Linux for you. Results are for the classic Windows, and Windows using GameBooster from Razer. On Linux, using Bumblebee, and native NVIDIA drivers.

Tested on highest details. Resolution: 1366x768

My system:

Linux Mint 15 - MATE 64 bit.
Windows professional 64 bit.

My HW:

Lenovo G580 AH
Intel Core i5 3210M
NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
RAM 8 GB DDR3

Tested on 30th September 2013:

Average FPS on Windows using GameBooster: 60
Average FPS on Windows: 58
Average FPS on Linux with native drivers: 45

Tested on 6th May 2013 (old test):

Average FPS on Linux with Bumblebee: 55
Average FPS on Windows using GameBooster: 43
Average FPS on Windows: 24

I was surprised that the performance on windows had improved a lot compared to the previous tests. 
I was also suprised that the performance on linux dropped so much. Dont know if it is due to native drivers, or something gone bad. Feel free to share your opinion!
