Totally agree. Little kepler's were fine until nVidia debuted Maxwell. At this stage of the game, I would not recommend little Kepler after seeing what little Maxwell can do. At this point, nVidia is just trying to get rid of overstock on kepler and thus the 740. Still a fine running card under linux but you get far more bang for the buck on Maxwell. Big Maxwell is just gonna be scary. Will AMD have anything to compete with big Maxwell in linux? I have my doubts as they have a hard enough time keeping up with an old GK104 as it is with their current flagship and their ever dwindling alt-OS R&D.
