NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 vs. 760 vs. 960 vs. 1060 Linux Performance

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

To complement yesterday's launch-day GeForce GTX 1060 Linux review, here are some more benchmark results with the various NVIDIA x60 graphics cards I have available for testing going back to the GeForce GTX 460 Fermi. If you are curious about the raw OpenGL/OpenCL/CUDA performance and performance-per-Watt for these mid-range x60 graphics cards from Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell, and Pascal, here are these benchmarks from Ubuntu 16.04 Linux.

A Second Batch of AMDGPU Changes Readied For Linux 4.8 Kernel

Linux

Submitted earlier this month was the main AMDGPU and Radeon DRM updates for Linux 4.8's DRM-Next while on Friday a second round of feature updates were submitted.

This second serving of AMDGPU/Radeon updates isn't as prominent as the main pull request, but there's still some new/improved functionality to land in DRM-Next in time for the Linux 4.8 merge window that will open up at the end of July.

  • Google Developers Improve Mesa's Android EGL Support
  • Nouveau DRM Code Updated For Linux 4.8

    The Nouveau open-source NVIDIA DRM driver changes have been queued in DRM-Next for the Linux 4.8 kernel.

    Nouveau updates this time around include GK20A/GM20B Tegra K1/X1 voltage and clock improvements as well as initial support for GP100 and GP104 GPUs. The latter provides initial KMS support for the GeForce GTX 1000 series. While NVIDIA did release some Pascal firmware, it ended up being only for the GP100 and not the GP104 or GP106. Thus with Linux 4.8 there isn't any hardware-accelerated support for the consumer GeForce GTX 1060/1070/1080 cards on the open-source driver stack. For those cards it comes down to un-accelerated kernel mode-setting support until NVIDIA releases the rest of the Pascal firmware in the future.

  • Nvidia 367.35 Linux Graphics Driver Released with VDPAU Feature Set H Support

    Today, July 15, 2016, Nvidia published a new long-lived graphics driver for UNIX-like operating systems, including GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris, Nvidia 367.35.

    The Nvidia 367.35 video driver comes as an upgrade to the previous update, Nvidia 367.27, announced exactly one month ago, which introduced support for Nvidia's recently released GeForce GTX 1080 and GTK 1070 graphics cards on Linux kernel-based operating systems.

  • NVIDIA 367.35 Released, Supports 8K H.265 Video Decoding

    NVIDIA Corp is out today with a rather notewrothy 367.xx series Linux driver update.

    The NVIDIA 367.35 driver that was released moments ago has GeForce GTX 1000 "Pascal" support improvements along with performance improvements and more. The possible performance win is improved buffer write speeds of the NVIDIA DRMKMS driver by using write-combined DRM dumb buffers.
