The NVIDIA/AMD Linux GPU Gaming Benchmarks & Performance-Per-Dollar For July 2018

Quote

In part with GPU demand by crypto-currency miners waning a bit, NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics card availability at retailers has been improving in recent weeks as well as seeing less inflated prices than just recently had been the case. Given the better availability and stabilizing prices, here is a fresh look of the current line-up of GeForce and Radeon graphics cards under Ubuntu Linux using the newest AMD/NVIDIA drivers and also providing performance-per-dollar metrics given current retail prices.

With graphic cards coming down in price I thought this might be of interest.

I noticed a article doing a comparison of eight distros which I found very interesting whilst reading the graphics article.

9-Way Linux Desktop Distribution Benchmarks With The Intel Core i7 8086K

There was also a comparison article with eight distros running as servers. The standout fact from both articles was the performance of Clear Linux which was way faster in many of the tests.

Nice but Clear Linux is only faster as it is a cloud based server. It is built on Redhat source anyway.

Interesting that it's way faster for a load of processes though no matter if it is cloud based.

Did you pick up on Antergos being a tad better than Manjaro in most tests :breakfast:

I would hope so considering that Antergos is basically Archlinux with a few theme packages and a couple of AUR ones whereas Manjaro is a bloated mess with a gui for everything.

:Muahaha:  :Laughing:  I knew that would get you going :tease:

Speed is not dependent on being a cloud distro though as the results from Solus show. Seems with the right knowledge you can tweak for speed on an ordinary desktop,

From page four of the article,

Clear Linux and Solus (which utilizes some of Clear's optimizations and Solus leader Ikey was a previous Clear developer) is substantially faster than the other distributions with the LAME Mp3 encode performance.

It's good to hear about graphics card prices heading back down after the artificial inflation caused by crazy crypto miners. I stumbled on some secondhand GTX1070s on ebay the other day - "only used for mining". I'm not sure that's a good proposition as that means they were probably constantly running flat out.

You can see a GPU comparison by choosing another video card. How many games can your GPU run?

Here is a neat little site.  :breakfast:

Hmmm. I looked up my GTX970 and it says it was released in Sept 2016. It was actually released in Sept 2014.

The factual accuracy of articles and information on sites is not always 100% unfortunately. The important thing is does your card play all the games you want to play ? :cool:

My GPUs are trailing edge but so are the systems they are in. I won't update unless I build a new system as there is no use having a state of the art GPU with a CPU from 2012. I don't use Linux for gaming (yet) and my TrainSims -although resource intensive - are not the latest technology and work fine in 1080p and medium graphics levels.
With Linux, I have an older AMD card (R7 360) that gives slightly better performance than the APU video I had originally. But it's only used for video and browser-based games the grandkids play. That said, the AMD based system from 2012 is plenty snappy for everyday usage. Unless I decide to game in Linux I won't be replacing it for a while.
