System Setup

First up are the raw OpenGL performance results for this comparison the following graphics cards were tested based upon the hardware I had available:

- Radeon R9 285
- Radeon R9 290
- Radeon RX 480
- Radeon RX 560
- Radeon RX 580
- Radeon R9 Fury
- Radeon RX Vega 56
- Radeon RX Vega 64
- GeForce GTX 780 Ti
- GeForce GTX 960
- GeForce GTX 970
- GeForce GTX 980
- GeForce GTX 980 Ti
- GeForce GTX 1050
- GeForce GTX 1060
- GeForce GTX 1070
- GeForce GTX 1080
- GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

The Radeon hardware was tested with the Linux AMDGPU Git code plus Mesa 17.3-dev + LLVM 6.0 SVN via the Padoka PPA on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Additionally, for the Radeon RX Vega results the "PRO" results are when using the launch-day AMDGPU-PRO 17.30 driver. All of the NVIDIA hardware tested was using the 384.59 proprietary Linux driver atop the Linux 4.13 Git kernel.

All of these tests were done using an Intel Core i7 7740X system running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the ASUS PRIME X299-A motherboard, 2 x 8GB DDR4-3200 Corsair memory, Samsung SSD 950 PRO 256GV NVMe SSD, and the mentioned graphics cards. All of the graphics cards were running at stock speeds. A Vega Linux overclocking article will be coming later this week.
