Thanks to new capabilities of the Phoronix Test Suite we are also able to carry out image quality comparisons.

Though as you can see from these compressed (to save bandwidth, but the uncompressed versions appeared the same) PNG snapshots there is no real visual differences between the four NVIDIA graphics cards with Enemy Territory: Quake Wars on Linux.

The first real problem encountered with this graphics card was CoolBits not working to manipulate the clock frequencies for the GeForce GT 240 under Linux. However, all other functionality was fine, so all is well, right? Well, no. With the OpenGL performance for this graphics card under Linux is where things start to get more interesting. We have test results from Nexuiz, VDrift, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Lightsmark, Unigine Tropics, Unigine Sanctuary, and MPlayer.
