NVIDIA Linux Performance-Per-Dollar: What The RX 480 Will Have To Compete Against
Written by Michael Larabel in NVIDIA on 25 June 2016 at 02:10 PM EDT. 43 Comments
There's a lot of benchmarking going on this weekend at Phoronix in preparation for next week's Radeon RX 480 Linux review. Here are some fresh results on the NVIDIA side showing the current performance-per-dollar data for the NVIDIA Maxwell and Pascal graphics cards for seeing what the RX 480 "Polaris 10" card will be competing against under Linux.

These are just the latest NVIDIA results for your viewing pleasure this weekend. Tests included the GeForce GTX 950/960/970/980/980 Ti and the GTX 1070/1080 from the new Pascal generation. Of particular interest in the results being shared today are the current performance-per-dollar metrics based upon the prices found at Amazon.com.

Enjoy these early numbers... First up are these latest raw results.

Now the performance-per-dollar:

And the meta performance-per-dollar:

Next week will be fun with all of the AMD and NVIDIA Linux results with the RX 480 launch day on the 29th! Tomorrow I'll share the latest performance-per-Watt NVIDIA metrics... But for now, back to playing with the Radeon RX 480 on Ubuntu :)

Want to compare your own system's results to these numbers? The results are on OpenBenchmarking.org and so you can easily install the Phoronix Test Suite and run something like COST_PERF_PER_DOLLAR=199 phoornix-test-suite benchmark 1606259-PTS-DOLLADOL22 where the environment variable is specifying what you want to report as the cost for the performance-per-dollar calculations.
