The Graphics Cards For Linux Gaming With The Best Value & Efficiency At Higher Resolutions
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 21 September 2015. Page 7 of 7. 41 Comments

A look at the system power consumption across all of the 2560 x 1440 Linux OpenGL benchmarks ran in this article....

Overall, the GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 series along with the TITAN X were delivering the best power efficiency. Due to the poor state of the Catalyst Linux driver, the efficiency of the brand new R9 Fury with Fiji GPU was only meeting the level of the GTX 950 Maxwell efficiency.

Hopefully these results were useful to you if you have a higher resolution monitor than last week's 1080p Linux graphics card results. If there's sufficient interest, next I'll carry out a fresh 4K/UHD graphics card comparison, but the numbers will hardly be surprising.
