NVIDIA OpenCL Linux Benchmarks
Phoronix: NVIDIA OpenCL Linux Benchmarks
In testing of OpenBenchmarking.org and preparations for the release of Phoronix Test Suite 3.0-Iveland at the end of February from SCALE, a lot of benchmarks have been happening to test the various analytical features and other new capabilities of this open benchmarking platform. In fact, it is really an overwhelming amount of benchmarks; the power capacity in my office is maxed out as benchmark after benchmark and system after system there is all sorts of test scenarios being looked upon. The benchmarks coming out on Phoronix.com over the past two months have just been barely scratching the surface of what has been going into the OpenBenchmarking.org system. Recently a lot of OpenCL compute benchmarks were pumped in, and since we have only published a few OpenCL Linux benchmarks -- OpenCL on Linux vs. Mac OS X and OpenCL NVIDIA vs. ATI on Linux -- here's some more in this article.
I'm impressed by the results of latest nVidia cards!
Really impressive these results. Latest Fermi-based cards put older nVidia cards on his dust! :p These new-gen Fermi cards really have a lot of GPGPU room...! ;)
Obviously these results are not hugely surprising with NVIDIA's newer generation of GPUs performing much better at GPGPU/OpenCL tasks than earlier generations. Even the low-end GeForce GT 220 graphics card is dramatically better with such workloads than a GeForce 9800GTX.
Latest "Fermi"-generation cards have a much higher number of dedicated GPGPU cores into their PCBs, so that they'll have very decent performance with OpenCL and other similar technologies (CUDA), OC!
Now, I'll be waiting some more time to know if AMD has a proper "answer" for these cards, but ATM, (and for some time) nVidia has been winning the GPGPU battle...
