Submission + - Turn Ubuntu into a highperformance workstation. (paradoxuncreated.com)

An anonymous reader writes: John Carmack Quakecon 2012: "Doom 3 is still taxing on a modern PC".
He talks about only being able to run it at 30 fps on consoles. And simplified the engine for Rage, to be able to do 60 fps.

Doom 3 does 3 passes to OpenGL, and is very sensitive to jitter.

However on a LOW-JITTER linux kernel + config, you can run it gliding and silky smooth at 72 FPS, showing no taxation at all.

And it does not need to be the latest hardware. A core2duo + gtx280 will do.

Windows will not run doom 3 aswell, and still drop frames, but it will help "microstutter".

Peace Be With You.
