NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX 512MB with Ubuntu

Filed under
Hardware

We've been meaning to deliver benchmarks of the NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX under Linux for some time. Finally we are delivering these benchmarks of the GeForce 9800GTX with Ubuntu Linux and using the most recent NVIDIA driver release.

Some of the features for the NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX include PureVideo HD Technology, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Hardware Decode Acceleration, Dual-Stream Hardware Acceleration, Dynamic Contrast Enhancement & Color Stretch, 3-way NVIDIA SLI Technology, NVIDIA Hybrid Power Technology, and PCI Express 2.0 Support. Unfortunately, many of these NVIDIA technologies aren't supported under Linux or are to a limited extent. For instance, NVIDIA PureVideo HD isn't supported on Linux at all. XvMC (X-Video Motion Compensation) was supported on early generations of GeForce graphics cards, but that support was dropped with GeForce 8 series. X-Video right now is the leading choice for NVIDIA Linux users. One of the newer GPU technologies that NVIDIA doesn't intend to support on Linux is Hybrid Power, which is unfortunate seeing as this feature is designed to conserve power, lower the noise level, and conserve heat output when running non graphically-intensive software.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX has 128 stream processors, 512MB of 256-bit GDDR3 memory, DirectX 10.0 (if using a Microsoft OS, of course), OpenGL 2.1 compliant, 70.4 GB/s memory bandwidth, and a 43.2 billion/s texture fill rate. The GeForce 9800GTX reference design operates with a 675MHz core clock, 1100MHz memory clock, and 1688MHz shader clock.

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Linux gives you a lot of control over network and system settings. On your desktop, Linux lets you tweak just about anything on the system. Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
