BioShock Infinite was only recently released for Linux. As shown by our initial BioShock Infinite Linux benchmarking, there's major issues with the Catalyst driver and I also did some 18 graphics card benchmarks. Besides the Catalyst issue, when running this game at 4K the game was unstable at times. For some of the graphics cards, when running at 4K the game was causing the system to lock up -- for some of the results below, they were only obtained after rebooting the system once or twice while for the other GPUs they had no successful runs. So for now take these BioShock Infinite 4K results below worth a grain of salt.

While there were only seven GPU results for BioShock Infinite due to the above-mentioned issues, the GTX TITAN X to no surprise dominated the competition. The TITAN X was 27% faster than the original TITAN.

With Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Linux at 4K, the TITAN X came out in front when all of the graphics cards were tested. CS:GO is still fairly CPU limited so it was only coming out a bit in front of the GTX 980.

The GPU temperature of the graphics card while running Counter-Strike: Global Offensive averaged out to 75C with a peak of 82C. The TITAN X temperature is roughly around the same level as the original TITAN and marginally higher than the GTX 980. The warmest graphics card though during testing was the Radeon R9 290 Hawaii.

For CS:GO, the TITAN X was burning through much more power than the GTX 980 but less than the original TITAN or GTX 780 Ti Kepler.

The overall power efficiency for the GTX TITAN X is thus lower than the GTX 980/970, but it still comes out ahead of the Radeon Rx 200 series hardware and the previous-generation Kepler hardware.
