The power consumption and thermal results are also great for the GTX 980 Ti. From the same Core i7 5960X system running Ubuntu 15.04 with the Linux 3.19 kernel and the NVIDIA 352.21 driver, here are some of those results:

While running Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the GPU temp averaged to 72 C with a peak of 81C.

The overall system power draw for this Haswell-E + GTX 980 Ti configuration was 255 Watts with a peak of 303 Watts.

So on a perf-per-Watt basis, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and its fellow Maxwell GPUs continue to run well in front of the AMD hardware on Catalyst for Linux.
