Back on Tuesday I delivered a launch-day review of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti on Linux. This first graphics card built on NVIDIA's new Maxwell architecture has been running fantastic under Linux for being a mid-range graphics card. The GM107 GPU core found on the GTX 750 Ti is incredibly power efficient, as was shown in numerous articles on launch-day. For those curious more about the GeForce GTX 750 Ti Linux performance, here are some more OpenCL and OpenGL performance results.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Linux review published already has benchmarks of 21 different AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards running numerous OpenGL and OpenCL native-Linux (some open-source) benchmarks. There were also thermal results along with the power consumption and performance-per-Watt metrics. The results shared in this article are just an assortment of other tests for those curious about this $150 NVIDIA GPU or are looking for some other result files to carry out your own comparison. Via the Phoronix Test Suite you can simply pass it any OpenBenchmarking.org ID to fetch all the necessary test data, automatically download the relevant tests, setup the tests, and execute the tests all in a fully streamlined manner followed by showing you the results side-by-side with the original data. It's that easy.

There will be other GeForce GTX 750 Ti benchmarks to come that compare the performance to an assortment of other GPUs and Linux driver configurations, but these are some extra benchmarks to push out prior to the weekend. First up in 1402184-PL-UNIGINEMA78 are 44 benchmarks done from the Unigine Engine games with the GM107 Maxwell. Following this are some OpenGL settings benchmarks, anti-aliasing Maxwell benchmarks, and much more. There's more than 100 total results linked to from this article.

Here we get a look at how well the GTX 750 Ti scales from resolutions between 800 x 600 and 2560 x 1600... At 1280 x 800 is when this mid-range GPU fell below 60 FPS for the very demanding Unigine Heaven benchmark.
