Last week we covered a 13-way Radeon GPU comparison on Ubuntu 14.04 and we also looked at the state of Nouveau on Ubuntu 14.04 with many NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. In concluding our latest round of open-source graphics driver tests from the upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr", here's a 20-way graphics processor comparison using AMD Radeon, NVIDIA GeForce, and Intel HD Graphics hardware.

Building upon the articles from last week is our 20-way comparison when using the stock open-source drivers that will be shipped in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS when released next week: the Linux 3.13 kernel, Unity 7.1.2, X.Org Server 1.15.0, xf86-video-ati 7.3.0, xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.10, xf86-video-intel 2.99.910, and Mesa 10.1.0. The graphics cards tested for this article included:

- Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 512MB
- Sapphire Radeon HD 4770 512MB
- AMD Radeon HD 4870 512MB
- AMD Radeon HD 5770 1024MB
- Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 1024MB
- HIS Radeon HD 6450 1024MB
- Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 1024MB
- Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1024MB
- Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2048MB
- ASUS Radeon HD 7850 1024MB
- XFX Radeon HD 7950 3072MB
- Sapphire Radeon R7 260X 2048MB
- Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2048MB
- ECS GeForce GTX 460 768MB
- Zotac GeForce GT 1024MB
- MSI GeForce GTX 650 1024MB
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2048MB
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2048MB
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2048MB
- Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Haswell)

As explained in the Nouveau article, the selection of NVIDIA hardware this time was rather limited since Ubuntu 14.04's Nouveau configuration was failing badly with pre-Fermi graphics cards in the OpenGL benchmarks ran where PGRAPH errors became frequent, etc. The overall selection of GPUs for this article were also limited to modern GPUs I had available at the time.

The Nouveau/Intel/Radeon drivers were all with their stock settings on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS x86_64 with the Core i7 4770K system. All of the benchmarking was handled in a fully-automated manner using the Phoronix Test Suite open-source benchmarking software.
