    Default NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 On Linux

    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 On Linux

    If you are after a low-end graphics card for use on Linux, up for review today is the Zotac GeForce GT 610 Synergy 1GB graphics card that sells for less than $50 USD. The results in this Linux hardware review compare the GT 610 to a range of other AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards using the proprietary drivers under Ubuntu Linux. Even if you're not interested in the GT 610, this article makes for a nice 12-way Linux graphics card comparison with the very latest AMD/NVIDIA GPU drivers.

    could you make a driver comparison? like, study how linux driver performance has evolved in the past year(but instead of doing it mesa, doing it binary?)

    I do every December/January... see the "Year in Review" articles on Phoronix that have been going on now for like the past 7 or more years.

    I recommend minimum, the nvidia gt620 for an htcp, the gt610 is a completely waste of money.

    Why does gt 620 list lower specs for memory and GPU frequencies than 610?

    Can you explain why? I'm currently running a fanless GT210 in my HTPC which is a much weaker card and it works great.

    Not necessarily. If you are after just great HD playback, proper working HD audio and a passive solution the GT-520/GT-610 fits the bill perfectly.

    I do not recommend that if you want to run it with nouveau: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70566 . Altough I do have an aged mobo, I recommend you do not purchase that specific card.

    Furthermore, the article states that some results will be worse with nouveau. That is true, but the nouveau driver runs UrbanTerror quite decent actually. The only thing that is not working is adjusting the brightness.

    But for now, I'm stuck with the blob .
