LXer: SteamOS gaming performs significantly worse than Windows, Ars analysis shows

Published at LXer:

Since Valve started publicly talking about its own Linux-powered "Steam Boxes" about three years ago now, we've wondered what kind of effect a new gaming-focused OS would have on overall PC gaming performance. On the one hand, Valve said back in 2012 that it was able to get substantial performance increases on an OpenGL-powered Linux port of Left 4 Dead 2. On the other hand, developers I talked to about SteamOS development earlier this year told me that the state of Linux's drivers, OpenGL tools, and game engines often made it hard to get Windows-level performance on SteamOS, especially if a game was built with DirectX in mind in the first place.
