Optimus Power Testing + Linux 3.12/3.13 Kernels

Benchmarks for a future article on Phoronix.com looking at battery power consumption using MONITOR=sys.power environment variable while running different OpenGL games on a clean install of Ubuntu 13.10, then with DRI_PRIME=1, and then when installing Bumblebee stable and running phoronix-test-suite via optirun for discrete NVIDIA graphics on binary blob. Now with LInux 3.13 and 3.13 kernel results included.

Compare your own system(s) to this result file with the Phoronix Test Suite by running the command: phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1312076-SO-OPTIMUSPO03
