OpenSUSE 11.3 Netbook Benchmarks

Filed under
SUSE

Following yesterday's release of openSUSE 11.3 we tested this updated Linux operating system that's sponsored by Novell on an Intel Atom netbook and compared the performance to that of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Fedora 13. Here are the results.

The netbook being used for the testing of these three desktop Linux distributions from clean installations was the Samsung NC10 with its Intel Atom N270 CPU, 2GB of system memory, Intel 945 integrated graphics, a 32GB OCZ Core Series SSD, and a 1024 x 600 display panel. OpenSUSE 11.3 was run with its stock Linux 2.6.34-12-default i686 kernel, GNOME 2.30.0 desktop, X.Org Server 1.8.0, xf86-video-intel 2.12.0, Mesa 7.8.2, GCC 4.5, and an EXT4 file-system. Again, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ships with the Linux 2.6.32 kernel, GNOME 2.30.0, X.Org Server 1.7.6, xf86-video-intel 2.9.1, Mesa 7.7.1, GCC 4.4.3, and an EXT4 file-system. Lastly, Fedora 13 has the Linux 2.6.33 kernel, GNOME 2.30.0 desktop, X.Org Server 1.8.0, xf86-video-intel 2.11.0, Mesa 7.8.1, GCC 4.4.4, and also an EXT4 file-system by default. A variety of tests were run via the Phoronix Test Suite and its netbook suite.
