While no performance improvements were explicitly mentioned as part of this week's NVIDIA 355 Beta driver release for Linux, there's been several requests by Phoronix readers to benchmark the new driver.

As such, I did run some common benchmarks on the NVIDIA 355.06 Beta driver and compared its performance to the 352.30 driver on different NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards. Ubuntu 15.04 was running on the system with the Linux 3.19 kernel.


Various tests like Metro: Last Light Redux, Unigine Valley, and Xonotic were run on the GTX 750, GTX 780 Ti, and GTX 980 Ti in looking for performance improvements with the new 355 Linux driver series. (Shadow of Mordor on Linux couldn't be tested for lack of the automation support.) However, there weren't any real improvements to be found. Thus it's just this short, one-page article while if you want to see all the raw performance figures for these three graphics cards you can find them via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
