AMD vs. NVIDIA Linux Gaming Performance

The alternative OS gurus at Phoronix have published an AMD vs. NVIDIA Linux gaming performance article featuring DiRT Showdown running on fourteen different graphics cards.

Yesterday marked the release of DiRT Showdown for Linux as ported over by Virtual Programming using their eON technology. With being able to use it as an automated, reproducible benchmark, I spent most of the day and into the night working on some initial AMD Radeon vs. NVIDIA GeForce graphics card benchmarks using this DiRT game that's finally available to Linux/SteamOS gamers, three years after it was released for Windows. This initial comparison is a 14-way Linux gaming graphics card comparison.
