Ubuntu 14.04 VS Windows 8 : Counter Strike Global Offensive with a GTX 680

A short video checking out the recently released Counter Strike Global Offensive running on both Ubuntu and Windows, both natively thanks to Valve!

Please note that it is well known that the Linux port still under performs compared to Windows, so this video is really just to see how big that difference is or isn’t.

On both the Ubuntu and Windows side, I am using the NVIDIA 340 series drivers. Thus, discrepancies there should be minimal.

  1. I can't get above 120fps consistently on ubuntu 18.04 with nvidias 390 (and 396) driver on lowest settings. Got a GTX 960 and and an Intel Q9650 and am consistently above 120fps on windows. On Ubuntu it drops down to below 50 (very noticeable and disrupting) when there are players on the screen and shooting etc. while running above 120 when there is just the map geometry. Is there some optimal driver combination that i'm missing out on or something?

  2. I will test it on Lubuntu 17.10 on my PC. In windows I get an AVG of 15 fps. Lets see how Lubuntu goes. My PC is an Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz 2GB of RAM and Intel HD

  3. nvidia in linux? omg linux hates nvidia and in 2014, more is problem in drivers in linux but in linux counter and more games work incredibly in amd 🙂

    sorry for my very bad english :)))))))))

  4. Linux has a very light RAM usage but not all windows software is well optimised in wine/ when ported to linux which is a shame really since linux can be a big os player when it is treated right.
