NVIDIA vs Radeon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2012
Among these two video cards, what should I choose for better compatibility with Linux?
- Placa de Vídeo NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M (Optimus)
- Placa de Vídeo AMD Radeon HD 6470M
Both on a PC with an Intel Core i7 that comes with a built-in graphics card Intel HD Graphics 3000, and I should be able to switch between the external card and built. This being, what the best choice to avoid problems?
Thank you and sorry for english!
ubuntuxswat (nvidia) vs 12.10 Quantal
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 4, 2012
Normally in Ubuntu 12.04, i used this PPA to get my nvidia driver.
Since ubuntu 12.10, i don't see Quantal in the supported distro. Where is it?
If i look here : http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-sw...dists/quantal/ i saw files.
What is the difference between x-updates and x-staging?
Any idea what is the best place to update nvidia driver?
Nvidia vs ATI and tearing
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 1, 2012
I'm about to buy a new video card (budget about 150 - 200€) and considering going for ATI. I've always used Nvidia but never got rid of the really annoying tearing (even after sync to vblank).
Are ATI cards less prone to this tearing issue?
Need advice on driver compatibility for new build, Nvidia vs AMD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 9, 2014
The most recent post I found re Nvidia vs AMD support was from 2012, so hopefully this sparks some decent discussion as to the state of the thing at this time.
I'm building a new rig for myself, which will be for gaming and other general powerusering (editing/rendering/number crunching). I've so far "settled" on the parts here: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/mspeleoto/saved/3HST
I've chosen the motherboard as I know it works well with Debian Wheezy, as it's what I have on my server (source: http://wiki.hetzner.de/index.php/Wake_On_LAN/en - the EX40) but that leaves me in a weird position that it only supports Crossfire and not SLI. I've read that Nvidia drivers are much better for linux than the AMD equivalents at the moment, but Nvidia lock out all the GPGPU functionality in their consumer cards.
So - does anybody have experience or references to how well/badly/not at all the following two GFX cards drivers work under linux at the moment?

Ubuntu nVidia + ATI Radeon = happy user!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2011
After suffering with suspend/resume issues on my Dell Studio XPS for a year and a half I finally decided to trash the Dell OEM GeForce 220 card. I have run Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04 32 and 64 bit - suspend usually worked, resume sometime worked. Other times the X session crashed.
I picked up a cheap MSI R5450 ATI Radeon card from wallmart.com. After removing the nVidia card and stomping it and doing the same with the nVidia drivers I installed the ATI card and drivers I kicked the configuration a few times to get it to my liking and tried suspend/resume. Worked great.
I just completed my 20th suspend/resume cycle since the install. I think I can declare success. I have suspend/resumed with open OO.o documents, terminals, web browser and email sessions, a CentOS VM guest running under VMWare player, a remote desktop viewer connected to the CentOS VM, an XP VM, the CentOS VM in mid reboot, the XP VM connected to an open PGP disk file on a Samba share on the Ubuntu host, and even wit
LXer: NVIDIA vs. Nouveau Drivers On Ubuntu 13.04

nVidia vs AMD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 10, 2014
I've been rebooting every 15 minutes for the last week since I updated my computer and the latest open source AMD driver got installed, unstable as hell. Long story short: I can't use my computer anymore.
My chipset being too old to install the proprietary drivers, I'm kind of stuck. So my options are:
1. Roll back the latest packages. Seeing how smooth an upgrade (from one release to another, not regular updates) is, I'm not even going to try that one by fear of destroying my distro.
2. Reinstall everything with 12.04
3. Spit 25€ to buy a new GC
I'll go with 3. My question is: which chipset? I've traditionally been an ATI guy so I'm used to crappy drivers. The only time I tried a fanless NVidia card it burned after a few month of usage...
Here are my usage scenario:
1. No 3D / Gaming
2. No fan. I want a quiet one
3. Best 2D acceleration possible given the first two parameters.
So I call for help to the combined experience Ubuntu community over which chipset I sh
Random X crashes (yet another Nvidia vs nouveau thread)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2012
Okay, I am one of those unlucky ones who have random X crashes in Precise (which look as if a sudden logout) that might be related to the NVidia proprietary driver, which I enabled during the installation.
I wanted to ask my specific questions, so I started a new thread.
1. I tried both proprietary drivers that Ubuntu suggested (NVidia accelerated driver current and Nvidia accelerated driver version-update). Experienced crashes on both of them. I then pressed the "Remove" button for both and now am running on nouveau. However, when I reboot my computer I have this moment of video card going crasy:
Booting. Notice no Ubuntu sign. And just at the moment when it used to appear I now have this:
It lasts for only a couple of seconds but it is very disturbing. Is there any way to fix this?
There is no Xorg.conf file in /etc/X11 (if this is of any importance).
2. If I use nouveau, does it mean I am stuck with Unity2D? I kind of liked Unity3D when it didn't cras
NVIDIA vs ATI/AMD graphics on Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2011
Greetings Comrades! I am building an Ubuntu machine, and the person I'm building for is looking for something suited for gaming/graphics intensive applications. I've only ever used Intel graphics cards for their excellent open-source drivers, but I'm thinking it's either going to be NVIDIA or ATI/AMD for this machine. So. . . Which would you recommend? In your experience, which is better for Ubuntu? Driver quality? Future-proof?
Nvidia vs. ATI
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 10, 2004
Hello. I've been thinking about buying parts and setting up a really nice linux box. New motherboard, 64 bit AMD CPU, nice graphics card, etc.
Who has better drivers and support, Nvidia or ATI?
Thanks for the help.
