    Default NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Steams Ahead On Linux

    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Steams Ahead On Linux

    As some good news for the Linux graphics community after discovering the AMD Radeon R9 290 is currently a big disappointment on Linux (likely due to the Linux Catalyst driver not being kept up as well as the Windows Catalyst version), I was testing the GeForce GTX 780 Ti along with some other new NVIDIA GPUs and it's been a breeze. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti in particular has been a beauty on Linux and is the focus of today's Linux hardware review.

    Buying an AMD graphics card for Linux is throwing money away, the nvidia proprietary driver is the only thing close to a mature graphics driver.

    The AMD drivers on windows are pretty crap to begin with, so it's not like... surprising.

    Thumbs down

    Wake me when their open source drivers beat Intel's.
    Until then, I share Linus's sentiment with regards nvidia.

    Thanks for putting the GTX 760 and HD 7950 on the same benchmark.

    Wake me when Intel GPU are good for serious 3D work and gaming.

    Indeed and I am getting tired to have no choice but to buy nvidia GPU to get high performance and reliability under Linux. SteamOS has been discussed for months with claims that AMD would improve their Linux support, and the result is still to be seen

    Default Pricing doesn't sound right

    At the time of writing, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is retailing for just over $500 USD while the GeForce GTX TITAN is still command a one thousand dollar price tag. On the AMD Radeon side the R9 290 is going for just above $400 USD and the flagship R9 290X is selling for $550 and up.
    I think the site you checked must have listed the card wrong as everywhere I've checked it is the GTX 780 (Non Ti) which is priced just over $500 USD and the price of the Ti version is $700.

    Have fun upgrading the kernel and finding out that you used a different version of gcc from the one nvidia used, and getting stuck in console mode to debug it.

    I'll grant you performance, but what exactly is the problem with Intel and AMD free driver reliability?

    More FUD.

    You're changing my wording, I specifically linked "performance and reliability". I don't want one or the other, I want both to benefit now from the hardware I bought.
