Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX 512MB
We've been meaning to deliver benchmarks of the NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX under Linux for some time, but with the recent rollout of the GeForce GTX 200 series, the competition presented by the ATI Radeon HD 4850, and the introduction of the GeForce 9800GTX+, the GeForce 9800GTX is dropping in price and captivating the interest of a different segment of users. Finally we are delivering these benchmarks of the GeForce 9800GTX with Ubuntu Linux and using the most recent NVIDIA driver release, which has a number of improvements since the G92 chipset was introduced back in April. The graphics card we're using is the EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR.
Current state of powermizer
Are the power saving functions working with current drivers? I'm planning on buing a second hand 9800 gtx+ card, but only if it idles nicely. Also, how is the 2D acceleration nowadays?
