For those anxious to see NVIDIA's newest high-end Maxwell graphics card, the recently launched GeForce GTX 980, on Linux, here's some preview results.

My GeForce GTX 980 sample just arrived on Friday so I've been busy testing it over the weekend and plan to have the review out in the next few days. So far, the GeForce GTX 980 is running great on Linux.

The full review will obviously feature tests against many different AMD and NVIDIA GPUs on Linux for OpenGL and OpenCL, but if you want some preview numbers, I uploaded some early standalone data to via the Phoronix Test Suite:

1409286-LI-GTX980RES78 - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Tesseract, and Xonotic at a variety of resolutions.

1409264-LI-TESTRUNLI75 - Various Linux gaming tests for the GeForce GTX 980.

If you want to see how your own system compares, it's simple a matter of running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1409264-LI-TESTRUNLI75.
