Additional NVIDIA RTX SUPER Linux benchmarks are still being conducted for looking at the compute performance and other areas. But for today here are some ending overview metrics:

From the 1080p/1440p gaming tests, here is a look at the overall AC system power consumption of the Core i9 9900K system with 26 different graphics cards.

And most interestingly, the geometric mean for the 1080p/1440p Linux gaming benchmarks for the titles that ran successfully on all of the graphics cards under test (the games with the Radeon driver issues being ommitted). The RTX 2060 SUPER performance was 11% faster than the RTX 2060 and in turn about 3% faster than the Radeon RX 5700. The RTX 2070 SUPER meanwhile was also 11% faster than the RTX 2070 with the geometric mean or 5% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. With these 1080p/1440p gaming tests, the RTX 2080 SUPER was 6% faster than the RTX 2080.

Lastly the geometric mean for all of the 4K gaming tests carried out successfully for this Linux gaming benchmark comparison. In this case of the more demanding GPU tests, the RTX 2060 SUPER matched the RX 5700 XT and was 15% faster than the RTX 2060. The RTX 2070 SUPER was 16% faster than the RTX 2070 and 19% faster than the RX 5700 XT. The RTX 2080 SUPER was 8% faster than the RTX 2080 and 18% faster than the Radeon VII.

Those are the latest results as of this week with the very newest Linux driver code from both vendors. Of course, it will be interesting to re-visit this in the months ahead with the AMD Navi support still maturing and becoming better optimized. Stay tuned for additional NVIDIA RTX SUPER Linux benchmarks looking at compute and other gaming tests to come. Thanks to NVIDIA for supplying these review samples.
