Fresh 10-Way GeForce Linux Benchmarks With The NVIDIA 367.18 Driver

In prepping for our forthcoming GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 Linux benchmarking, I've been running fresh rounds of benchmarks on my large assortment of GPUs, beginning with the GeForce hardware supported by the NVIDIA 367.18 beta driver. Here are the first of those benchmarks with the ten Maxwell/Kepler GPUs I've tested thus far.

Earlier this month I posted the With Pascal Ahead, A 16-Way Recap From NVIDIA's 9800 GTX To Maxwell but in still waiting for my GTX 1070/1080 samples to arrive, I've restarted all of those tests now using the newer 367.18 driver as well as incorporating some extra tests like the recently released F1 2015 for Linux, not having done any SHOC OpenCL tests in a while, etc.

I'm still carrying out the updated tests on the NVIDIA side followed by fresh open-source Radeon tests using RadeonSI from Mesa 12.0-RC1 and Linux 4.6~4.7-rc1, etc. But as the ten way comparison is already interesting enough, here are those updated figures if interested.

For the first ten of these Maxwell/Kepler GPUs re-tested so far while waiting for the Pascal samples to arrive (I'm hoping on Tuesday!), you can find the latest OpenCL / OpenGL / Kepler test results via this comparison.

Again, see this result file for many more results of these first ten GPUs in my latest comparison. Stay tuned for more results -- including the newest open-source AMD Linux numbers -- once the Pascal hardware ends up arriving.

If you want to see how your own system's performance compares to these results, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1605317-HA-TESTGRAPH32.
