NVIDIA --
The GeForce GTX 980 Ti as NVIDIA's current highest-end desktop GPU is running great under Linux, assuming you don't mind running the proprietary graphics drivers.

I finally received my GTX 980 Ti review sample from NVIDIA this week and it's in the midst of running lots of interesting tests, along with putting out a large Linux graphics card comparison for 4K gaming, OpenCL, performance-per-Watt/efficiency, etc. Many interesting tests are coming in the days ahead!


The GTX 980 Ti is a ~$700+ USD graphics card but packs quite a performance punch with its Maxwell GPU running at high clock frequencies and packing 2816 CUDA cores.

While all of the tests are still ongoing at Phoronix, for those interested in some preview NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti Linux numbers, I published some standalone results to OpenBenchmarking.org, primarily at 4K. If you're interested in seeing some basic standalone OpenGL/OpenCL results for the GTX 980 Ti on Ubuntu 15.04 while waiting for the full articles, head on over to this OpenBenchmarking.org result file. If you want to see how your own Linux system stacks up, install the Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1507210-PTS-NVIDIAGT41.
