    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 On Linux: OpenGL, OpenCL, Vulkan Performance

    $699 USD is a lot to spend on a graphics card, but damn she is a beauty. Last month NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 1080 as the current top-end Pascal card and looked great under Windows while now finally having my hands on the card the past few days I've been putting it through its paces under Ubuntu Linux with the major open APIs of OpenGL, OpenCL, Vulkan, and VDPAU. Not only is the raw performance of the GeForce GTX 1080 on Linux fantastic, but the performance-per-Watt improvements made my jaw drop more than a few times. Here are my initial Linux results of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Founder's Edition.

    Good test but fault test games (Tomb Raider - Grid AutoSports - F1 2015 - Dirt Showdown - Bioshock Infinite - Counter Strike Global Offensive - Left4Dead 2 - Dead Island Definitive - Dead Island Riptide - Shadow of Mordor - Alien Isolation - Arma III - Shadow Warrior - Saint Row Series and others*)

    *Maybe can try test manually in some machines, maybe with more game tests can give more attention for future paid subscriptions

      Most of the tests mentioned cannot be automated as needed. Would need a lot more subscribers to do manual testing.

        For example could test in one machine* various cards** and put this test for only premium subscriptors for determinated time (one week???)

        *Manual Test is more demanding but give more attention

        **Can target only level cards example GTX 750Ti or equivalent on amd, GTX 950 or equivalent on amd, GTX 960 or equivalent on amd, GTX 970 or equivalent on amd and others with same idea

          As said, first would need many more subscribers before even considering it.

            Easily could try for example with two games* dont appear in regular tests

            *Games when can give more attention maybe shadow of mordor, alien isolation and others

              Maybe a macro can be made for some games?

              Also I thought you could run a benchmark replay with WarThunder now from command line. I will check up on this,.. Nope outputs to screen the results. Dammit.

                Agreed, synthetic benchmarks are not interesting at all. Anyway this card is way too expensive, I’m waiting for the RX 480 and GTX 1060 tests .

                  Thankfully, as long as your PSU can handle it, peak wattage isn't as important as average wattage. It's like driving 900 miles at 60mph and 100 miles at 90mph--the difference between going 60 or 90 the last 100 miles is only 33 minutes, but the entire trip is over 15hrs. D:

                  Anyway, I don't think there's any danger with the temps you got Michael--the critical temp for nvidia cards is around 90c right? So you have about 15c buffer, which is pretty big, and the driver is pretty good about predicting temperature spikes.

                    I've looked into some games, but none of the macro options have been reliable due to being bound generally then to a given resolution, randomness within some games for their replay mode, and a variety of other factors...
