    Phoronix: Where AMD's Catalyst Driver Does The Best On Linux

    Earlier this week I finished up a 15-way AMD/NVIDIA graphics card comparison on Linux with the very latest proprietary Linux drivers. That earlier article focused on the OpenGL performance and simply put the Catalyst performance on the tested Radeon hardware was abysmal compared to NVIDIA's Linux driver performance. However, there is one area where the Catalyst Linux driver really excels at performance and routinely beats out the green competition.

    Besides LuxMark test, I do not seen much difference between the cutting edge cards between the greens and the reds. As said in the note, OCL 2.x support is coming for the green team and so, as we have a much better *GL performance, I'm still not convinced by AMD's product under Linux (assuming people accept to use the proprietary blobs).

      Hi Michael.
      I've been long time looker, it's time for my first post What about other OpenCL tests? I'm thinking specifically about Darktable. Say applying 8-10 modules to a raw file. It would be great to add some real world benchmark as opposed to... ehm.. just benchmark

        As far as I know DarkTable has no way to do an automated test case / benchmark. i.e. automate all the processes from start to finish. If there is support or it gets added, I'd be happy to make a test profile for it.

          Youŕe mistakenly equating the 285 with the 370. I'm pretty sure the R9 380 is the product using a Tonga GPU not the R7 370, which iirc uses a Bonair GPU

            Huh? R9 285 is Tonga, R7 370 is Trinidad PRO / Cura?ao PRO /Pitcairn PRO.

              I hope the open source OpenCL will come out soon. Because I would like to be more used on open source software.

                Perhaps fahbench might be an option to add. It does support comandline as well as having a gui. Should work well under linux and is a pretty good indicator of how the gpus will perform running FAH. https://github.com/pandegroup/fahbench

                  Luxmark is a benchmark based on a real world 3d render engine (Lux Render) that stresses the GPU much better than anything darktable might be able to do, it's a perfectly adeguate test.

                  I'd rather continue seeing Luxbench tests than darktable based ones.

                    It will be interesting to see next week how the Radeon R9 Fury performs under Linux.
                    Per other Windows reviews i can't say Fury is best bang for buck when it comes to OpenCL performance as opossed to what happens to OpenGL... doubles OpenCL performance is even more slower then Hawaii which means 390/X is probably at best for the buck, of course if not some workstation FirePro cards
