Nouveau vs. NVIDIA Power Monitoring Results
In complementing the Nouveau vs. NVIDIA OpenGL benchmark results published earlier this week on Phoronix, here are the power consumption and performance-per-Watt metrics.
Due to the current Nouveau re-clocking situation, the results aren't a huge surprise, thus this quick, one page-page write-up. The proprietary NVIDIA driver led over Nouveau on all of the tested graphics cards in power efficiency.
The power results and all system data can be found hosted at OpenBenchmarking.org for those curious about the specifics.
