Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Only Works On Some GPUs

The alternative OS gurus over at Phoronix found something interesting while working with the latest open-source drivers for NVIDIA based video cards.

With being in the process of checking out several new NVIDIA GeForce 700 GPUs on Linux, now that I have out of the way the GeForce GTX 760 / 770 / 780 Ti / TITAN Linux benchmarks and Windows vs. Linux NVIDIA benchmarks, I decided to see how these four "Kepler" graphics cards are working with Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA graphics driver that's written through clean-room reverse-engineering.
