24-Way AMD Radeon vs. NVIDIA GeForce Linux Graphics Card Comparison
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 27 January 2014. Page 5 of 5. 15 Comments

Well, there you have the results of our latest AMD Radeon vs. NVIDIA GeForce graphics card comparison using the proprietary Linux graphics drivers. As has been the case for a while now, and given this weekend's 25-way open-source GPU comparison with all of the Nouveau difficulties, those wanting open-source Linux graphics driver support are best off with AMD Radeon hardware (or Intel HD Graphics for lower-end needs) but if you want a high-performance, feature-rich Linux graphics experience with the closed-source drivers, NVIDIA hardware with their first-rate Linux binary blob will generally suit you the best.

If you have any other questions about Linux GPU drivers or choosing a Linux graphics card, drop by our forums or social network accounts at Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. If you like all of these Linux hardware tests done often at Phoronix (and generally can not be found anywhere else on the Internet) please subscribe to Phoronix Premium or consider a PayPal tip, but at the very least please do not use AdBlock when viewing Phoronix.

If you want to see how your own system compares to all of these Linux OpenGL graphics card benchmarks it's just a matter of easily installing the Phoronix Test Suite and then running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1401270-PL-CLOSEDSOU24.
