10-Way AMD & NVIDIA OpenCL GPU Linux Tests

For some weekend Linux benchmarking we tossed six NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards against four AMD Radeon graphics cards to get some idea for how the new OpenCL Linux benchmarks are running via the Phoronix Test Suite.

Having put out some new and updated OpenCL benchmarks this week (details in the aforelinked article) along with the release of Phoronix Test Suite 4.8.4, this week when running some GPU comparisons for a forthcoming Linux graphics card review, I also took the time to do some new reference OpenCL benchmarks.

Using the new and updated GPGPU test profiles, I ran the tests on an assortment of NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. On the NVIDIA side was a GeForce GT 240, GTX 460, GTX 550 Ti, GT 610, GTX 650, and GTX 680. On the AMD Radeon side was the HD 6870, HD 7850, HD 7950, and R9 270X. The graphics drivers used was the NVIDIA 331.20 Linux x86_64 release and AMD Catalyst 13.11 Beta 6 atop Ubuntu 13.10.

The results should pretty much be as expected for the different hardware and are mostly being published for reference purposes. I also encourage you to see how your own Linux OpenCL-enabled system is performing against these reference figures by installing the latest Phoronix Test Suite and then running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1311092-SO-NVIDIAAMD26. This command will install the same tests in the same configuration as used for this testing, run all of the tests in a fully-automated and reproducible manner, and merge the results side-by-side so that you can fully analyze your system's GPGPU performance and optionally share the data via OpenBenchmarking.org.
