29-Way GPU Comparison On Linux From Kepler & Cypress To Today's Pascal & Vega

First up was BioShock Infinite, an OpenGL Linux game port that still can run on hardware going back to Kepler and Cypress. With the GTX 650 in fact it's still putting out just under a 60 FPS average at 1080p but do note that with the current generation graphics cards at 1080p it just becomes CPU bound, showing very little difference between the Pascal and Polaris/Vega hardware. But the graph was included for showing how older hardware is performing on the latest Linux graphics drivers.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on Linux could run back to GCN 1.0 and the higher-end Kepler cards albeit relatively slow and at 1080p with low quality settings is just CPU bound for the higher-end, modern graphics cards, but for those curious how the old hardware is performing, here are those metrics. The Radeon R9 290 and GeForce GTX 780 Ti is around the cut-off for a playable experience with these settings on the current Linux drivers.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided with high quality settings at 1440p easily squashes most of the graphics cards performance.
