A Look At The Huge Performance Boosts With Nouveau Mesa 17.0-devel On Maxwell
With the Nouveau NVC0 changes made this week, the GTX 750 Ti performance for BioShock Infinite is nearly twice as fast while the GTX 980 is only 23% faster. As mentioned already, the GTX 750 Ti is faster than the GTX 980 on this open-source driver since the GM107 card can be re-clocked with Nouveau while the GTX 980 is currently stuck to its low boot frequencies.
The GTX 750 Ti is more than twice as fast with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and now is rather playable frame-rates at 1080p with this newest code.
More exciting results for the GTX 750 series with this latest Git... The instruction pipelining improvements yielding these big performance improvements have no impact on Nouveau Kepler cards or other older NVIDIA GPUs on this driver.
