    Phoronix: 11-Way GPU Benchmarks For Linux Puzzle Gamers

    While first person shooter games tend to dominate the Linux gaming landscape, if you are curious about some numbers for a puzzle video game like Talos Principle, here are some fresh benchmark results for a slew of different GeForce graphics cards on the latest Linux driver...

    I did play the whole game on an AMD HD7850 with radeonsi driver, it was playable but with a few bugs: shadows were jerky and textures were sometimes missing/very slow to load. The game is a masterpiece and it's still worth playing it.

      Thanks, great game btw.

      It will be fun to repeat this test once vulkan is released and compare with these numbers.

        So a 750ti runs the game better than a 960? This sounds like a big issue.

          I'm really glad the open-source radeonsi driver is good enough for my requirements...

            Is there "Talos.log" from the benchmarks available somewhere? Was the hardware autodetection disabled?

              The game ran great for me using catalyst on my mobility 7770(cape verde). never had any visual glitches, just some stutter right when the game starts or you change major scene for the first time. but that was greatly reduced with catalyst 15.10 to the point where I didnt notice the stutter unless looking for it.

                Agreed. That's seems a bit odd. But....now that I am thinking about it....the 960 is probably only a rebadged 750 with a slight process change, a firmware update and the addition of full hardware video encode and decode. If that's the case....it begs the question, at least in my mind, could we see sometime this year a GTX 960 Ti with an increased clock rate to amp the 960's performance as did the Ti version of the 750 over the stock 750 ?

                  I think that smacks of auto hardware detection. Something's off.

                    I had deleted the hardware detection script from my steam install when making this test profile.
