    Performance increase when running on a separate X server/window?

    I'm curious. I cannot test this, but do you get an increase in performance of Unreal Tournament 4, when running it on a separate X window/server?

    Example of how you do it on Ubuntu & Arch Linux:
    Code:
    $ xinit ./UnrealTournament -- :1.0 vt9
    You should be switched to the new X server automatically, if not use "Ctrl + Alt + F9". F7 should be your Desktop. You might not get sound as it might not have permission to run on that X server.

    I doubt that. If your window manager is behaving well (that is, unredirecting fullscreen windows), this shouldn't increase performance, but rather decrease it by a bit due to additional overhead of running two X servers at once.

      I see, I often use this for games, because sometimes switching workspaces breaks the whole desktop(Unity desktop in my case).

        Yea, some games are not well behaved. SDL2 fixes much of that (although it does allow people to still make misbehaving programs if they want to...).
