With Pascal Ahead, A 16-Way Recap From NVIDIA's 9800 GTX To Maxwell

Here is the GPU thermal data for the tested cards during all of the OpenGL benchmarks that were run at 4K:

But more interestingly is all of the GPU power consumption data at 4K as we wait to test Pascal:

Again, see the earlier pages for the 16-way 1080p data going back to the GeForce 9800GTX.

Well, that's all the historical NVIDIA OpenGL Linux performance data to share today. Stay tuned for our NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070/1080 hopefully later this month. The OpenCL data similar to today's OpenGL comparison will be published later this week and I am also working on some fresh performance-per-Watt metrics for comparing to the red side too. Again, if you like all of our Linux hardware tests done at Phoronix by your's truly, please consider joining up for Phoronix Premium to make more of these tests possible.

If you want to dig through the data more, there is a ton more data available via OpenBenchmarking.org for the 1080p OpenGL Linux results and the 4K data set. Via our Phoronix Test Suite open-source benchmarking software you can carry out the same tests in an identical, automated, and standardized manner via a simple command like MONITOR=gpu.temp,sys.power PERFORMANCE_PER_WATT=1 phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1605113-HA-NVIDIA10809 to see how your own Linux OpenGL performance compares.
