Phoronix: High-End NVIDIA GeForce vs. AMD Radeon Linux Gaming Comparison
After last week carrying out separate NVIDIA Windows vs. Linux OpenGL benchmarks and similar AMD Radeon Windows 8.1 vs. Ubuntu 14.04 tests, today we are pitting the GeForce and Radeon graphics cards against each other on Ubuntu Linux with the very latest drivers to see how their performance compares now head-on. With this testing we have some Steam games plus are also monitoring the power consumption, performance-per-Watt, and GPU thermal metrics.
Yeah i liked that little king in the middle .
This is really sad to see for us 290 owners.
But yeah GTX 770 4GB and R9 290 4GB are clearly in the same pricetag here .

While 2gb may be enough for Linux today, if you're forward thinking then 4gb is going to last you longer than 2gb (at whatever performance level you're going for as long as it's fairly high end). 2gb would already limit you if you want high-res textures on some recent games on Windows. That is if what the devs say is true, I haven't ruled out the possibility that they said that to shift AMD cards, many of which have 3gb, whereas most Nvidia other than the 780 go for 2gb, with a 4gb option.
