Benchmarking Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor On Linux

With this game not offering proper automation of benchmarking, only some very basic benchmarking was done with a handful of graphics cards... Much less than our other articles driven by the Phoronix Test Suite like 15-Way AMD/NVIDIA Graphics Card Comparison For 4K Linux Gaming, 22-Way AMD+NVIDIA Graphics Card Tests With Metro Redux On Steam For Linux, and the thousands of other Linux performance articles written at Phoronix over the past decade.

Due to those issues, only five graphics cards were tested for this initial article: on the NVIDIA side was a GeForce GTX 680, GTX 780 Ti, and GTX 980 Ti. On the AMD Catalyst side with its buggy support was just the Radeon R9 290 and R9 Fury. If Feral Games is able to provide proper benchmark automation for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor On Linux, I'll happily be back with many more tests and routine benchmarks for this game.

The system where these graphics cards were tested was the Intel Core i7 5960X system as featured in many other articles in recent days (along with the proper system information table when the tests are driven by the Phoronix Test Suite). Ubuntu 15.04 x86_64 was on the host system with the Linux 3.19 kernel while the drivers were AMD Catalyst 15.7 and NVIDIA 352.30.
