Default nTune for Linux?

Has nForce driver for Linux any application like nTune for Windows?

I like to run benchmark and optimization.

Thanks

If optimization (read: overclocking) is what you want, try nvidia-settings and
nvclock. Both available as Debian packages.

I suppose you're right. Should be better than nothing, though.

No, you have to overclock using BIOS values or a soldering iron.

If you're using an AMD CPU, try K7MCTRL for overclocking
your CPU, changing voltages etc.

The docs are in Japanese, but it's worked for me before:
k7mctrl

Won't help if you're using an Intel, I guess.

I know this thread is old and k7mctrl no longer works / hasn't been updated for the new CPUs, yet this page persists at the top of searches on the subject so here is some more info for late visitors:
