1080p NVIDIA Linux Comparison From GeForce 8 To GeForce 900 Series
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 23 January 2016. Page 3 of 3. 12 Comments

With the Unigine Tropics tech demo, which is one of the most demanding pre-GL4 tests, there is a 49x difference in performance from the 8500GT to GTX 950. From the 9800GTX to GeForce GTX 980 is a 5x difference at 1080p.

Unigine Valley is, of course, much more demanding than the Tropics demo. Only with the GeForce GTX 750 and higher at 1080p were we seeing an average FPS above 30.

Xonotic becomes CPU bound with the newer graphics cards at 1080p, but here's a look anyhow at how the performance has evolved going from the GeForce 8 series through GeForce GTX 900 series.

There you have it for those that were curious about the 1080p results. See the full 27-way NVIDIA Linux GPU comparison from earlier this week for more demanding OpenGL results, performance-per-Watt figures, and more. Once again if you'd like to say thanks for all of the Linux hardware testing work done at Phoronix, consider taking part in this week's special deal.

If you would like to see how your own Linux system's graphics performance compares to the 1920 x 1080 results in this article, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1601232-GA-1080PNVID75.
