21-Way Open-Source AMD/Intel/NVIDIA GPU Benchmarks On Linux

The NV50 (pre-Fermi) Nouveau Gallium3D driver still has problems rendering Counter-Strike: Source and likely other Valve Source Engine games. This was tested with the latest Nouveau code, but at least Fermi/Kepler is now rendering correctly.

The main issue on the Nouveau driver side continues to be about the lack of re-clocking support. Devoted Phoronix readers are likely already aware of the issues that the lack of proper re-clocking support means, otherwise check out the Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Works On Some GeForce 700 GPUs article or any other recent Nouveau article for more details on the problems facing modern NVIDIA GPUs with this reverse-engineered driver. Worth reading if you're into using the proprietary Linux GPU drivers is the AMD Radeon R9 290 Linux review, the big AMD/NVIDIA proprietary GPU benchmarks, and the Windows 8.1 vs. Linux GPU benchmarks... All published in the past few days on Phoronix.

On the following pages are the results from this 21-way graphics processor comparison on Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.13 kernel (Git) and Mesa 10.1-devel with other updated open-source graphics driver packages.
