Xonotic with ultra image quality settings till led to a playable experience on seven of the graphics cards, sans the obviously crippled GTX 750 Ti on the current Nouveau driver.

With ultimate image quality settings is where the GTX 650 and Radeon HD 6870 offer less of a playable experience on the open-source Linux graphics drivers at 1920 x 1080.

Well, hopefully these results were of some interest to you if it's been a while since you last checked on the open-source Radeon/Nouveau graphics drivers. If you want to see how your own Linux system -- whether using the open or closed drivers -- compares to all of the data points in this article, simply install the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1507103-BE-R7370539435.
