NVIDIA Linux 2D Benchmarks With The GeForce GTX 980

Last week having done the GeForce GTX 980 Linux review with a ton of OpenGL benchmarks followed by GTX 980 OpenCL benchmarks and yesterday even running some updated NVIDIA VDPAU Linux benchmarks, next up for this high-end Maxwell graphics processor are some 2D performance benchmarks using NVIDIA's binary blob.

This weekend I ran some fairly straight forward NVIDIA 2D benchmarks from their 343.22 proprietary driver: workloads included QGears2, Render Bench, and GtkPerf -- all ran of course by the automated Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.

Besides the GTX 980, also re-tested was the GeForce GTX 460, GT 520, GT 610, GTX 680, GTX 750 Ti, and GTX 780 Ti. Ubuntu 14.04 with the Linux 3.15 kernel was running on the Intel Haswell-E host system.

The benchmark results aren't a big surprise even with older NVIDIA Fermi GPUs running very fast for 2D operations when paired with their proprietary driver. You can find all of these benchmark results in full at OpenBenchmarking.org via 1410050-LI-NVIDIA2DL23.
