Updated Source Engine Benchmarks On The Latest AMD/NVIDIA Linux Drivers

Benchmarks of Valve's Source Engine games (and other Steam titles for that matter) aren't done in all Phoronix driver tests and graphics card articles for various reasons, among which is that there's other more GPU-demanding OpenGL tests to utilize for modern hardware. However, for those curious about the performance of various AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards using the latest proprietary drivers, here's some updated numbers.

This article is just to serve as some quick, updated reference results for those that keep requesting new Source Engine game results on the AMD/NVIDIA Linux drivers. At the common 1080p resolution with the high performance proprietary drivers, Valve's popular games with native Linux ports remain rather CPU bound but these results are requested nevertheless. Coming up in the days ahead will be the open-source driver results for Valve's popular games.

The Source Engine titles tested for this round of straightforward benchmarks were Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Counter-Strike: Source. These games were run via the Phoronix Test Suite for test automation and reproducibility of the results. The NVIDIA 340.24 Linux driver was used as the latest on the GeForce side while AMD's latest driver tested was the Catalyst 14.6 Beta. The tested graphics cards on the Ubuntu 14.04 system included:

- GeForce GTX 460
- GeForce GT 520
- GeForce GT 610
- GeForce GTX 650
- GeForce GTX 680
- GeForce GT 740
- GeForce GTX 750
- GeForce GTX 750 Ti
- GeForce GTX 760
- GeForce GTX 770
- GeForce GTX TITAN
- GeForce GTX 780 Ti
- Radeon HD 6770
- Radeon HD 6870
- Radeon HD 6950
- Radeon HD 7850
- Radeon HD 7950
- Radeon R7 260X
- Radeon R9 270X
- Radeon R9 290
