Linux Benchmarks Of NVIDIA's Early 2015 GeForce Line-Up

Following yesterday's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 launch, here's an 11-way comparison looking at all of NVIDIA's Maxwell GPUs as well as many Kepler and Fermi GeForce graphics cards under Linux. Beyond the raw OpenGL performance, the thermal and power efficiency data is also available for the tested range of GeForce 900/700/600/500/400 series graphics cards.

Many Linux Desktop 2D Benchmarks Of NVIDIA vs. AMD Drivers

This week on Phoronix were many Linux graphics tests from Unreal Engine 4 to Metro Redux with twenty-two AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. Yesterday was also a 22-way GPU Linux OpenCL comparison. For your weekend viewing pleasure are now 2D desktop benchmarks from all of these GeForce and Radeon graphics cards atop Ubuntu Linux.

Open-Source NVIDIA/Nouveau Tests On Linux 3.19

After last week delivering initial open-source Radeon DRM driver tests on Linux 3.19, here's similar treatment in testing out the new Linux 3.19 kernel with the Nouveau DRM driver for open-source NVIDIA graphics.

AMD Radeon Graphics Performance With The Linux 3.19 Kernel

With the Linux 3.19 kernel stabilizing nicely, here's a first look at the open-source AMD Radeon graphics performance using this new kernel that will be officially released in the weeks ahead. The Linux 3.18 kernel was compared to the latest Git code of Linux 3.19 for several different AMD Radeon HD series and Rx 200 series graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970/980: Windows vs. Ubuntu Linux Performance

Earlier this week I posted some benchmarks showing NVIDIA's Linux Driver Continues Running Strong Against The Windows Driver that also included the open-source Nouveau driver results in the mix too. However, due to using the Nouveau driver, the newest GeForce GTX 970/980 graphics cards were left out of testing as the open-source driver doesn't yet fully support these newer Maxwell GPUs. In this article though we're going back to compare the Windows vs. Linux performance of these two high-end NVIDIA GPUs at a UHD 4K resolution too.

NVIDIA Linux Driver Continues Running Strong Against The GeForce Windows Driver

With last week having delivered fresh benchmarks of AMD's Catalyst Linux vs. Windows drivers (and before that an updated Intel Linux vs. Windows OpenGL comparison to end out 2014), here's some updated NVIDIA Linux vs. Windows benchmarks to compare the GeForce graphics drivers at the end of 2014. Three different graphics cards were used in benchmarking the latest NVIDIA Linux vs. Windows performance with the proprietary graphics drivers followed by also having the latest open-source NVIDIA/Nouveau driver results.

Intel Haswell Linux OpenGL Driver Catching Up To The Windows Driver

Past Intel Windows vs. Linux graphics driver benchmarks have shown that for Haswell the OpenGL performance on Linux generally comes up short of the proprietary Windows driver. Fortunately, the Intel open-source Linux driver improved a lot this year and is now more competitive to the Windows driver.

Nouveau vs. NVIDIA GeForce Linux Performance At The End Of 2014

Complementing yesterday's Radeon Gallium3D vs. Catalyst Linux benchmarks that compared AMD's open and closed-source Linux graphics drivers using the latest code at the end of 2014, here's similar benchmarks done in comparing the open-source Nouveau driver against the closed-source NVIDIA Linux graphics driver when testing several GeForce GPUs.

Radeon Gallium3D Moved Closer To Performance Parity With AMD's Catalyst In 2014

Last week I wrote about the incredible improvements to AMD's open-source Linux driver over the course of 2014 that showed many significant OpenGL performance improvements for the open-source driver on various Radeon GPUs... But how does the latest open-source code compare to the closed-source Catalyst driver? In this article are benchmarks from an even larger assortment of Radeon GPUs while testing the latest Radeon Gallium3D and Catalyst drivers at the end of 2014.
