The Open-Source Linux Graphics Card Showdown
Again, all of these graphics cards were tested from the Intel Core i7 3770K + ECS Z77H2-A2X system with the Linux 3.4 kernel, Mesa 8.1-devel, the latest X.Org Git drivers, and the respective Nouveau/Radeon driver fixes/optimizations. For now this offers a nine-way open-source Linux graphics comparison while a much larger comparison (and including the binary blobs) is on the table for early this summer once the open-source support for NVIDIA Kepler, Intel Ivy Bridge, and AMD Southern Islands have all matured further along.
All benchmarking and power monitoring was fully automated in a reproducible and turnkey manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite software. Now let's see these exciting results!
