Brian Proffitt: So far, the response to the new Linux.com has been really positive and, save for a few glitches here and there, we've been very happy with how the launch has gone thus far.

Fresh 10-Way GeForce Linux Benchmarks With The NVIDIA 367.18 Driver

In prepping for our forthcoming GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 Linux benchmarking, I've been running fresh rounds of benchmarks on my large assortment of GPUs, beginning with the GeForce hardware supported by the NVIDIA 367.18 beta driver.
