    Phoronix: The NVIDIA/AMD Linux GPU Gaming Benchmarks & Performance-Per-Dollar For July 2018

    In part with GPU demand by crypto-currency miners waning a bit, NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics card availability at retailers has been improving in recent weeks as well as seeing less inflated prices than just recently had been the case. Given the better availability and stabilizing prices, here is a fresh look of the current line-up of GeForce and Radeon graphics cards under Ubuntu Linux using the newest AMD/NVIDIA drivers and also providing performance-per-dollar metrics given current retail prices.

    It's quite significant that the 560 and 580 are able to top the price performance charts for a number of the games using the open driver. I doubt many would have believed that would be the case a few years back.

      I got a good offer for a GTX 1070 Ti and thus switched to it from a RX 560.
      The Nvidia driver is worse than ever before, lots of games like War for the Overworld or Serious Sam Fusion run with just shitty performance. I get system freezes with DXVK, I can't get mpv to work without constant microstutter, Xorg performance when creating windows is still abysmal and of course general compatibility with xorg compositors too. GDM doesn't even start with Wayland, running [email protected] even makes the mousecursor stutter while with the RX 560, I could watch stutter free videos in mpv Vulkan at the same time.

      Nvidia doesn't care about Linux desktop users, it's a completely broken mess. Everyone should be aware before buying (I was, I will likely replace the card with Navi.) and not get fooled by some high fps in games which run better on Windows anyway.

        Also, I don't like how the 1080 Ti is 1.8x (!) faster than the 1080 in the BioShock 4K High benchmark. Is NVIDIA cheating here or what?

          I am surprised to see that Vega 56 near consistently does well against Nvidia 1070 and Vega 64 is doing great as well. I really think we entered the golden age of Open Source drivers.

            Yeah, these days anyone who says the Nvidia proprietary driver is the golden example of graphics on linux is full of shit.

            I've been happy with my RX 580 since the day I got it and haven't looked back.

              Simply fantastic. Congratulations to AMD, you have succeeded with an open source strategy. Nvidia, you'd better shape up and open up now. You messed up gpgpu by being proprietary, and are now starting a death dance on GPUs in general. It may already be too late for Nvidia.

                NVIDIA just released a new beta driver that fixes some of the freeze issues people were having with DXVK. I'd suggest people using that move to it.

                I have a 1080ti because 4k, which AMD doesn't really compete in yet, one day.

                  Impressive how badly the GTX 1060 is on Linux, compared to the RX 580. I even looked to see if Michael was using the 3 GB version, but no, is it was the top 6 GB version. Funny that on Windows, people often say that the 1060 is better, but on Linux is the other way around, unless you need a ITX version, where AMD only have to offer the RX 570 and those are somewhat rare (I managed to get one).

                  Above 1080p gaming Nvidia loose steam badly (pum intended), at 4k things look surprisingly red :-) AMD sure wanted that some of those benchmarks were made on Windows, because things are looking good for them here.

                  Kudos for all opensource developers out there, these are fruits of your hard work. I'm totally trowing some money your (employer) way at the end of this year.

                    To my recollection, the 580 tends to perform better than the 1060 on Windows too, the performance gap just isn't quite as wide.
