    Phoronix: NVIDIA 384.59 Driver Is Playing Fine With Linux 4.13

    Just a quick PSA for NVIDIA binary Linux driver users wishing to play with the latest development kernel.....

    Unfortunately the Vulkan driver in this one is still crap. Vulkan + vsync = hard locking the whole system in SS Fusion and Talos. RPCS3 has broken rendering, DOOM doesn't even start. OpenGL in everything is fine as usual. Stable and performs great.

      Premium supporters, make sure to express your latest test requests.
      Michael Thank you for this. Are you able to run a single multi-way test? (without posting the results as an article)

      If not, then may I ask a question?

        Hmm, bit confused by what you're asking. Can you reclarify?

          Sure. Is it possible for you to run a single test on multiple cards, without publishing the results in the form of an article?

          I just am interested on Triangle at 1080p since I got this card a while ago and I want to know how does it fare to the other cards (I don't have a 2160p monitor but most of your latest benches are done in 2160p)

            Ah I see, I'll add triangle 1080p to next time I am doing a GPU comparison (I am working on one right now for next week, but too late for that, but besides that will add 1080p triangle for next comparison for you.

              OK, thank you.

                Michael I would love to see something like a Ryzen vs i7 7700k (or something like that) show down on games with a GTX 1070 or 1080 (1080p). Would be interesting to see the gaming performance difference from Intel's top gaming dog and ryzen on Linux and if the gap is the same as Windows. Would be cool to throw in an FX-8350/8370 or something in the mix, too, along with other CPUs. But really, I would just love to see some Ryzen benches with Nvidia (especially Total War), comparisons to Intel and older AMD CPUs would just be the cherry on top.
                BTW, did you do ram speed scaling tests on Linux yet going up to 3200+ (preferably on Nvidia)?

                  Are true the claims about this driver having heating issues compared to the previous LTS 375 driver?

                    I and my kid made a custom non-debug 1000Hz timer 4.13-rc4 kernel yesterday and this nv driver works fine with kids 750ti. I do not like working in the Linux rescue mode and compile kernel headers, so next card is RX570 definitely when it is available under 200 euros like it was before miners took them all.
