A Variety Of OpenGL/OpenCL NVIDIA 367.27 vs. AMD Linux 4.7 + Mesa Git Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Hardware on 27 June 2016 at 04:35 PM EDT. 73 Comments
For your viewing pleasure this afternoon are some fresh NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900/1000 benchmarks with the 367.27 display driver compared to various Radeon GCN GPUs using a patched Linux 4.7 kernel and Mesa 12.1-dev Git as of this past weekend.

These are tests in the lead-up to the Radeon RX 480 Linux review that will be made public on Wednesday when its launch day embargo expires... The cards for this pre-RX480 Linux GPU comparison include:
1: GeForce GTX 950
2: GeForce GTX 960
3: GeForce GTX 970
4: GeForce GTX 980
5: GeForce GTX 980 Ti
6: GeForce GTX 1070
7: GeForce GTX 1080
8: Radeon HD 7950
9: Radeon R9 270X
10: Radeon R9 285
11: Radeon R7 370
12: Radeon R9 Fury
These will be the primary graphics cards used for comparison for the RX 480 Polaris Linux review. The results being shared today are just a variety of OpenGL and OpenCL benchmarks with the raw performance numbers. See my other articles for some fresh performance-per-Watt and performance-per-dollar numbers.

The RX480 Linux review contains results for both the open-source AMD Git stack plus a yet-to-be-made-public AMDGPU-PRO driver update. Thus for this article are just the open-source AMD numbers since that -PRO update isn't public yet.

For some Linux games, the open-source AMD code still has a tough time competing.

How will the RX480 fit in? Stay tuned for Wednesday.

Lots of fun OpenGL testing the past few days...

At least the open-source AMD stack is running strong in Unigine.
