    Phoronix: 20-Way AMD / NVIDIA Linux Gaming Benchmarks For The 2018 Holidays

    If you are hoping to pick-up a new graphics card during the upcoming holiday sales, here is a 20-way NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon Linux gaming benchmark comparison using a wide assortment of GPUs while using the very newest graphics drivers and a variety of OpenGL/Vulkan titles.

    BTW, you ignore 1080p in latest tests, so it may be still valuable for those who stay on FullHD, which is most popular resolution according to Steam (64.29%).
    It all depends what I am testing in terms of games and hardware. With many games when benchmarking at 1080p on cards like the GTX 1080 and newer or even RX Vega, they are simply CPU bound at 1080p.

    Not ignored, just didn't see all comments (especially with my time really being a mess the past few days cycling frequently between hospital to visit wife and working...) But the reason I didn't include the RX 560 is that since in many of the tests it performs rather slow (below 60 FPS). So including it in those perf-per-dollar graphs would likely show it being out in front for value, which it is technically, but not too viable really for most Linux games given its rather slow performance. So for the dollar graphs basically included the modern mainstream/mid-range cards and better.

    Michael it seems like RX 560 is lost in perf/$ charts.

    As Freesync monitors are cheaper ...
    would not be AMD GPUs in advantage when you are going to purchase a combo for gaming
    in 1080p as 4k is still not for gaming?
    I have a few FreeSync 4K displays and will talk more about them when the DRM bits are merged. I have no G-SYNC displays nor plans/budget to get any anytime soon.

    Hello bofh80 and gurv,

    please have a look @ amd-staging-drm-next
    commit #29bf84e646c45b3370b640d44c0ce454ecb845c3
    drm/amd/pp: handle negative values when reading OD

    When using the feature mask boot parameter clocks are stuck at 300MHz on 4.18

    Thanks to a good fellow on these very forums, the workaround seems to be :
    echo "1" | sudo tee /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_sclk_od
    echo "1" | sudo tee /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_mclk_od
    And voilĂ , your card should be running normally.

    You can than overclock through p-states:

    FYI I've been able to push my RX 470 to 1350MHz/1750MHz at stock voltages.
    Didn't try to go higher yet.
