With the recent testing of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti being our new graphics card up for Linux benchmarking as well as having a new NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release, hare are OpenCL benchmarks of 12 graphics cards using the latest AMDGPU-PRO 17.40 and NVIDIA 384.98 Linux drivers on Ubuntu x86_64.

A range of OpenCL benchmarks were used for this comparison including looking at each system's power consumption and performance-per-Watt for the interesting tests. The AMD graphics cards were using AMDGPU-PRO 17.40 and the vm_fragment_size=9 option set.

The tested Radeon cards were the RX 580, R9 Fury, RX Vega 56, and RX Vega 64. On the NVIDIA side was the 384.98 Linux long-lived driver release with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1080, and GTX 1080 Ti.
