18-GPU NVIDIA/AMD Linux Comparison Of BioShock: Infinite
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 24 March 2015. Page 2 of 2. 30 Comments

As shown by last week's initial numbers, the Radeon graphics cards with Catalyst became bottle-necked around 42~46 FPS at 1920 x 1080 while the NVIDIA hardware with their latest Linux driver on Ubuntu didn't hit any walls until past 120 FPS. From the GTX 550 Ti and higher, the GeForce GPUs were all delivering above sixty frames per second.

At 2560 x 1600 the CPU bottleneck for the high-end NVIDIA GPUs was removed with the GTX 970/980 GPUs hitting 100+ FPS. Aside from the highest-end NVIDIA GPUs running well, the GTX 680, GTX 760, and GTX 960 managed to deliver 60+ FPS for BioShock: Infinite at 2560 x 1600. Meanwhile, the AMD Radeon hardware with the newest AMD Catalyst 15.3 Beta remained crippled.
