    Phoronix: 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 drivers are usally fine with OpenGL, with the one exeception: Killing Floor. The speed is roughly the same on all platforms and 99% of all games work. However I want to see some new features like HEVC/VP9 in vdpau, HEVC should be possible with the new 9xx cards.

      900? Well, looks like it's time for them to change model numbers, again. Maybe two digits now?

        Maybe just one digit, but use the alphabet instead of numbers.

        I want a GTX Zti 8GB.

            Let them just do what EA does. They release games with the same name again, so it would also be funny to see this with hardware. Let's play NFS Most Wanted with a Riva TNT, though neither one would be what most people think...

              AMD did that already; ATI had 7000 series GPUs before the HD7000 series.

                I'd love to see more GTX 970/980 comparisons with more cross-platform AAA titles like Borderlands 2, Borderlands The Pre Sequel, and the Valve titles like Counter-Strike: GO, DOTA 2, Half-Life 2, Portal 1/2, Left 4 Dead 1/2, and Team Fortress 2.

                  It's all limited by the games that can be fully automated in a reproducible manner.

                    Everyone would, but it's not gonna happen without automatable benchmarks. I'd still like to see even some non-automatable benchmarks, especially now that Steam provides an FPS overlay for any of its games. I mean, it's not like we need to be religious about whether some benchmarks is automatable or not. That should be Michael's New Year's resolution: not to be religious about benchmarking!
