    Phoronix: The Dota 2 Performance On The Latest NVIDIA Linux Graphics Drivers

    If you are a Linux gamer and not using the open-source Radeon driver with an AMD GPU, chances are your Linux gaming system is running a GeForce graphics card with the proprietary NVIDIA driver. So with yesterday's latest Dota 2 benchmarks with the R600g and RadeonSI drivers, this morning I finished up some complementary Dota 2 OpenGL comparison with the NVIDIA 361.28 proprietary driver with an assortment of Kepler and Maxwell GeForce graphics cards...

    Okay, let me get this straight: With 4k resoulution, the GTX 980 Ti runs at 106 fps the TITAN X at 112 fps. Yesterday, you posted that you had a result that the Fury runs the same game at the same resolution with 122 fps?

    So the Radeon Fury (not Fury X!) with open-source drivers is outperforming a the fastest GeForce graphics with proprietary drivers? Almost sounds too good to be true. Have you already found out, what makes your Fury sometimes faster and other times slower?

      Unfortunately my theory yesterday that it may have been due to a regression when DRI3 is active, doesn't look like it panned out.

        Yeah except this very update actually broke Dota among bunch of other Source games on Arch LOL

          Similar to what happened on the talos principle benchmark, the 750 is faster than the 960, something is wrong with the driver on that card

            Will you be posting how you managed to resolve your previous Fury issues to help anyone else having the same problems?

              Slightly off-topic: The machine in the benchmarks has dual-channel or quad-channel memory?

                1080p is always CPU limited. That's really boring to see everytime.

                  All the GPUs seem to be using PCI Express 3.0 connections. This is another constant which may limit GPU scaling, though I don't know how much it contributes to the overall result.

                    It's almost certainly from the rc3 kernel release, which included a change to how the firmware was (not) loaded for Fury cards. Michael was asked to test that patch multiple times for several weeks, but never heard anything back from him, unfortunately, until it just got released upstream.
