4-Way Nouveau Benchmarks On Linux 3.12, Mesa 9.3
Phoronix: 4-Way Nouveau Benchmarks On Linux 3.12, Mesa 9.3
Earlier this week on Phoronix were the results of an 11-way AMD Radeon GPU comparison using the Linux 3.12 kernel and Mesa 9.3-devel. Coming out today are the results for a four-way NVIDIA GeForce graphics card comparison using the Nouveau driver on Linux 3.12 / Mesa 9.3-devel. Sadly, this comparison is smaller than the open-source Radeon comparison since the reverse-engineered Nouveau driver was very buggy in its current configuration.
How bad is this re-clocking issue to resolve? This issue has been going on for a while now.
well it took AMD's own developers a relatively long time to fix it on their own hardware. I don't expect a bunch of volunteers who have to reverse-engineer everything to accomplish it any time soon.

Ah yes, I forgot about that one. But it'd be nice to see if newer hardware has gained any advantages.
