    Phoronix: Radeon GPUs Are Increasingly Competing With NVIDIA GPUs On Latest RadeonSI/RADV Drivers

    As it's been a few weeks since last delivering a modest Linux GPU comparison and given the continuously evolving state of the Linux kernel Git tree as well as the Mesa project that houses the RadeonSI OpenGL and RADV Vulkan drivers, here are our latest benchmarks showing the current state of the AMD Radeon open-source Linux graphics driver performance relative to NVIDIA's long-standing and high-performance but proprietary driver using several different graphics cards.

    The year of the open source graphics is finally upon us - AMD finally has a first class high end GPU that can go neck and neck with Nvidia in price / performance.

    And its out of stock everywhere and when in stock at least twice over its MSRP thanks to miners.

    What a buzzkill.

      That Tomb Raider result is interesting. Is there something about that game that works better on AMD or has Nvidia regressed? I suppose Mesa rendering was correct so that is not an issue.

        Where is your closed source god now?

          Really impressive. I always wonder what kind of patented stuff nvidia and amd have in their proprietary drivers that make it impossible to open source them. It doesn't seem to be that much of an advantage anymore

            Soo, a new AMD GPU being on par with the 2nd in line, 2 year old NV GPU is "competing" now? Okay.

              There is really no reason for any self respecting open-source enthusiast to run NVidia hardware any more. Sold my GTX Titan last year, replacing it with an Rx 480 and have not looked back. All my Steam games play really smoothly on Ultimate settings. Everything just works, and works really well - no more binary blobs or proprietary kernel modules to compile. AMD FTW!

                Impressive! Congratulations to the guys at AMD and everyone working at this topic!
                This means there will be no Win10 for me, once support for Win7 ends. Hopefully AMD will implement GPU virtualization (MxGPU) for consumer GPUs. But in that case there would be no GPUs to buy, even if mining fully collapses as everyone and their mother would switch to Linux and virtualized Windows.

                  AMD so deserves this success for over a decade (the later ATi included) open source support! ;-)

                    we're talking drivers, not hardware.
                    we know the hardware is well, not progressed at all and I think Raja can be easily blamed for not delivering anything in 4 years.
                    Drivers are good, impressive and improving at a good pace.
