NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 On Linux


This week I featured the first Linux review of an AMD Radeon Rx 200 series graphics card in the form of an AMD Radeon R9 270X "Curacao XT" benchmarked on Ubuntu. If you're looking to buy a new graphics card for use on the Linux desktop but prefer NVIDIA hardware or buying a GPU isn't dependent upon the incomplete RadeonSI driver, being looked at today on Phoronix is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Kepler graphics card.

The GeForce GTX 650 has been on the market since late last year so the open and closed-source Linux GPU driver support is both maturing -- sans Nouveau's lack of re-clocking for Fermi/Kepler hardware at the moment -- and prices on this GK107 graphics card have been lowered as well. At the moment, the GeForce GTX 650 graphics cards can be bought retail for around $100 USD. For those looking into a low/mid-range graphics card on Linux, the GeForce GTX 650 has the potential to be very interesting.
