Linux gamers looking for reasons to skip NVIDIA’s new GPUs can head over to Phoronix: founder Michael Larabel has listed 10, which include lack of open-source driver support and what will probably be a long wait for Linux games featuring ray tracing. Linux driver support for Turing is also unclear. For fairness, Larabel has also published a list of 10 reasons how Linux gamers may benefit from an RTX card. If you want to fully leverage the GeForce RTX 20 "Turing" hardware, or even Maxwell and Pascal graphics cards, it's really only viable using the closed-source proprietary graphics driver for maximum performance and features. There is no open-source Turing support today, and even if there was, it will likely be plagued by the same Maxwell2/Pascal limitations of no re-clocking support -- meaning the GPU on the open-source driver is stuck to performing at the very low clock frequencies programmed by the hardware at boot/initialization time.
