If you are planning to upgrade your graphics card in a Linux system this holiday season, here are some fresh benchmarks of several different AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards with various Linux gaming tests under Ubuntu. The AMD tests were done both with the latest RadeonSI Gallium3D stack as well as the AMDGPU-PRO hybrid driver.
Tested on the AMD side was the Radeon R9 285, R9 290, RX 460, and RX 480 with both the fully-open driver stack (Linux 4.9 Git + LLVM 4.0 SVN + Mesa 13.1-dev Git as of the end of the week) and then AMDGPU-PRO 16.40.
Tested on the NVIDIA side with the 375.20 Linux driver was the GeForce GTX 708 Ti, GTX 980, GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, and GTX 1080.
Via the Phoronix Test Suite a range of OpenGL benchmarks were run. Published last week were also some fresh Vulkan benchmarks while more tests are on the way. Enjoy these latest Linux GPU results, additional interesting OpenGL/Vulkan/OpenCL/CUDA metrics.
