Recently, we received the rest of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 “Ampere” lineup that we were unable to access previously for testing over the past few weeks, busy testing / retesting these new graphics cards. This includes the previous GeForce RTX 20 series. Related AMD Radeon hardware and graphics to deliver the current look of 1440p and 4K Linux gaming performance.
Earlier this month, there were a handful of NVIDIA RTX 30 series processor testing results with all cards currently in our possession for testing. Additionally, after using AMD Radeon Software drivers for Linux this month, Vulkan ray-tracing support was finally introduced.It also benchmarked the Radeon RX 6800 against the GeForce RTX 30 RT on that front, although the Radeon Software that packs Vulkan drivers. Ray-tracing will still be active in progress and will not play well with VKD3D-Proton. The open source Radeon Vulkan drivers also do not support ray tracing. So while the proprietary driver stack, NVIDIA Vulkan driver support for the Vulkan RT extension is in a much better state.
The RTX 3090 is … really big.
The video cards that have been tested for this round of 1440p and 4K Linux games are as follows:
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
– NVIDIA GeForce TITAN RTX
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080
– NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
– AMD Radeon VII
– AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
– AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
– AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT
– AMD Radeon RX 6800
– AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
Thanks to NVIDIA for supplying RTX 30 video cards earlier, we were previously unable to access Linux benchmarks.Similarly, thanks to AMD for the Radeon graphics cards tested, none of the Radeon RX 6900 series tested in today’s article because Still no RX 6900 XT
All of these benchmarks were run on an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X system running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, the NVIDIA driver side is the NVIDIA 460.67 Linux driver, while the Radeon side is Linux 5.12 Git with Mesa 21.1-devel since early April built against. LLVM 12.0, due to the time involved (re) in all graphics card testing, now it has newer NVIDIA 465 drivers and on the Radeon Linux 5.13 Git side plus Mesa 21.2-devel, so next month I will be doing a comparison with the stack. The latest driver again at that time. Likewise, NVIDIA is still working to keep me updated with vBIOS support for the Resizable BAR Linux test, so hopefully there will be a test in May as well.
Through the Phoronix test suite, a wide variety of Linux native and Steam Play were compared.
Additionally, GPU power usage is monitored during the benchmarking process.
