Nvidia GeForce GTX 970/980: Windows vs. Ubuntu Linux performance Earlier this week I posted some benchmarks showing Nvidia’s Linux Driver Continues Running Strong Against The Windows Driver that also included the open-source Nouveau driver results in the mix too.

In this article though we’re going back to compare the Windows vs. Linux performance of these two high-end Nvidia GPUs at a UHD 4K resolution too.
