A 14-Way Comparison Of NVIDIA vs Nouveau Drivers - PCSTATS.com A 14-Way Comparison Of NVIDIA vs Nouveau Drivers
Sun, Sep 11 2011 | 6:35PM | Filed under: Audio / Sound| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"Back in September I provided the most comprehensive AMD Radeon Linux graphics comparison that took 28 graphics cards from all supported ATI/AMD Radeon product families and tested them under Linux using the latest Catalyst driver as well as the open-source Mesa/Gallium3D driver. In this article is a similar comparison on the NVIDIA side as I take most of the GeForce graphics cards at my disposal and try them under the NVIDIA binary Linux driver and the community-developed open-source ""Nouveau"" driver. Not only is the OpenGL performance looked at for multiple generations of NVIDIA hardware, but the thermal and power consumption is compared too.
