    Phoronix: Performance & Perf-Per-Watt From NVIDIA's GeForce 9800GTX To GTX 1080

    Now that my initial GeForce GTX 1080 Linux review is out the door, I spent this weekend working on a "fun" comparison out of curiosity to see how the raw OpenGL and OpenCL performance has improved over the generations going back to the once-powerful GeForce 9800GTX plus including the top-end cards of the GeForce 600/700/900 Kepler and Maxwell series too.

    For me it is very impressive from a technical point of view.
    Technical singularity is coming for sure with numbers like this :

      I love to see old card as GeForce 9800GTX in test, its best thing in benchmarking which i saw in last months, only better thing which i still want to see is some x86,sparc, power comparison..

        Unfortunately I have no SPARC or POWER hardware...

          Would be nice to see a lineup next to this of AMD's ppw improvements. As well as maybe seeing perf per watt between AMD's and Nvidia's high end cards. (Especially on polaris vs pascal)

          Yeah it's an inevitability considering that programming (and self-programming) AI will eventually come around.

            Yes will do that once I have Polaris...

              Dammit. Now I want a 1080.

                Not sure whether you're being sarcastic. The 9800GTX is years old. I'm not sure you will find a suitable Linux driver for AMD hardware that old.
                I mean, you can look at power usage of the last few generations, but wouldn't be too useful: they're all GCN which has only received minor improvements since 1.0.
                Plus, the review itself is pretty useless: you know your current card is more efficient the your old one (what can you do with that data?), but that's no guarantee this will hold in the future.

                  Thank you posting the OpenCL results for Pascal. Exactly what I was looking for. I will make a contribution to Phoronix tonight in appreciation for this work.
