27-Way NVIDIA & AMD Graphics Card Benchmarks On Linux
Phoronix: 27-Way NVIDIA & AMD Graphics Card Benchmarks On Linux
After last week delivering a 21-way graphics card comparison on Linux using the open-source Intel, Radeon, and NVIDIA (Nouveau) graphics drivers, this week at Phoronix we have a 27-way graphics card. This time around all of the graphics cards were tested using the closed-source/proprietary AMD Catalyst and NVIDIA graphics drivers.
$320 gtx 770 performing 20-30%+ better than $410 r9 290
$240 gtx 760 performing +/- 5% of 290
did you compare the 4GB RAM versions of both cards?

Nice work Michael!
It would be nice to see luxmark benchmark in the list too.
It's a very important opencl benchmark to show the gpu power.
Does it seem to make a difference in performance?

Thanks Michael for this great testing. Hopefully next time we can the Performance-per-Watt comparison, too.
For a owner of R9 270X as me, I'm not very concern about Catalyst gaming performance now.
As benchmarks show, Catalyst clearly either hits a cap or has a huge gap behind GeForce.
But as long as it's still sits above 60FPS, it won't affect real world game experience much.
Surely it also sits behind in all Unigine powered benchmark AND below 60FPS.
Well, I can easily low GFX setting a bit in Oil Rush to reach 60FPS, which is the only Unigine powered native Linux game I have.
