NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti On Linux

By now we've all seen how the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti performs on Windows, but what about Linux performance? Thankfully the crew at Phoronix got their hands on one and have put it to the test.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA's newest, most powerful graphics card for gamers not only on Windows but also under Linux. I only received the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti this morning so here are my initial Linux performance figures for this new high-end Pascal graphics card compared to other NVIDIA and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Linux VR tests, CUDA/OpenCL compute benchmarks, and additional GeForce GTX 1080 Ti results will be published in the days ahead when having more time to spend with this graphics card.
