The first results are from the Unigine Heaven benchmark, which does not work with Mesa/Gallium3D, so it is limited to just using the binary Linux driver. It is technically possible to get it running if enabling S3TC support, floating-point textures, and the patented support, but even then, it is at a snail's pace and not taking full advantage of Unigine's OpenGL 3/4 renderer. Unigine Heaven is currently the most demanding OpenGL Linux workload for the public. These Heaven results are just being shown for reference and those wishing to compare their system's performance to the multiple generations of NVIDIA GeForce hardware being shown.
