Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 18 June 2012. Page 6 of 6. 5 Comments

Unlike Nexuiz, the Xonotic game on the NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards heavily favored the binary graphics driver.

The Nouveau driver still has a long ways to go in competing with the NVIDIA binary driver in terms of features, effective re-clocking support, and performance, but stay tuned to Phoronix for the latest updates to both the open and closed-source Linux graphics drivers. If you appreciate such large graphics card comparisons under Linux going forward, please subscribe to Phoronix Premium or make a PayPal tip since due to limited support from NVIDIA these graphics cards must often be purchased retail.
