Linux 2D Performance: Nouveau vs. NVIDIA

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Linux

After last weekend delivering 30-way Intel/AMD/NVIDIA 2D Linux benchmarks this weekend I have some results comparing the GeForce GPU performance for 2D operations between the open-source Nouveau driver and the closed-source proprietary NVIDIA Linux driver.

All testing happened from the same Intel Core i7 4770K system running Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit. The Nouveau stack was powered by the Linux 3.15 kernel, Mesa 10.3-devel, and xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.10. The proprietary NVIDIA Linux graphics driver stack was the NVIDIA 337.25 proprietary driver running on Linux 3.13.
