http://phoronix.com – Phoronix: Open-Source Nouveau Driver Remains Slow For NVIDIA's Fermi, Kepler After last week publishing a Linux review of the GeForce GTX 650 using the proprietary NVIDIA Linux graphics driver, I set out to run a new performance comparison of the open-source "Nouveau" graphics driver against NVIDIA's official closed-source Linux driver. In this comparison, five different GeForce 400/500 "Fermi" and GeForce 600 "Kepler" graphics cards were benchmarked under Ubuntu Linux on each driver. http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=19271 (HowTos)
