New NVIDIA Detonator 3 Drivers For Linux
Краткое содержание статьи: A month later than for the Microsoft operating systems NVIDIA has finally released its Linux driver 0.95, which unofficially includes 'Detonator3'-tuning. 7 NVIDIA 3D cards under SuSE's brand new Linux version 7.0 had to show if the advance over the previous driver 0.94 is able to live up to the improvements seen with Detonator 3 under Windows 2000.

Setup

Due to Linux' obvious lack of DirectX-support, I only compared OpenGL-performance. Quake 3 Arena was my choice for 3D gaming, and SPECviewperf 6.1.2 was used to measure the professional OpenGL-performance of the cards/drivers/operating systems.

Unfortunately you won't find any TNT2-Ultra results under Windows 2000. Both drivers, revision 5.32 (Detonator 2) as well as rev. 6.18 (Detonator 3), turned out to be highly unstable with TNT2-Ultra under Win2k. We were never able to finish a full SPECviewperf run, Quake 3 Arena crashed on several occasions as well.

This time I used SuSE's brand new Linux 7.0, which is based on the kernel 2.2.16.

You might be surprised to see GeForce 2 MX results this time. Seemingly my initial GeForce 2 MX sample was faulty in some strange way. It ran fine under any other OS, but never wanted to work with Linux. A new sample fixed the problem.

Results

I divided the benchmark results in three groups.

  • The first group compares Linux to Windows 2000 with Detonator 2 as well as Detonator 3.
  • The second group shows the difference between Detonator 2 and 3 under Linux as well as Windows 2000.
  • Finally I compared AMD's Athlon/Thunderbird 1000 with Intel's Pentium III/Coppermine 1000 under Linux and Detonator 3.
