The latest Linux GPU benchmarks at Phoronix for your viewing pleasure are looking at the OpenCL compute performance with the latest AMD and NVIDIA binary blobs while also marking down the performance efficiency and overall system power consumption.

The newest numbers to share are LuxMark from the Phoronix Test Suite while recording the power data for a range of GeForce and Radeon GPUs. From the Catalyst 14.6 Beta (fglrx 14.20.7 / OpenGL 4.3.12967) and NVIDIA 340.24 Linux x86_64 drivers, the following graphics processors were tested:

- eVGA GeForce GT 740
- eVGA GeForce GTX 750
- eVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti
- Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
- ASUS Radeon HD 7850
- XFX Radeon HD 7950
- Sapphire Radeon R7 260X
- Sapphire Radeon R9 270X
- XFX Radeon R9 290

The selection of graphics cards used for this article were limited to those that I had available. On the following pages are the updated OpenCL benchmarks for those interested in Linux GPGPU performance with the AMD/NVIDIA binary blobs from an Ubuntu 14.04 host.
