    Thank you for these bechmarks! The Linux drivers has come far in making games playable on Linux under Radeon, though they still have ways to go.

      you should compare native opengl games working both platforms without porting. ported games penalize linux operating systems.

        ... the list you linked to includes ported games. And some are Windows OpenGL games with no Linux version.

        How many games do you know that were written natively in OpenGL for Windows and Linux?
        Of those, how many stress the GPU enough to make a meaningful GPU driver comparison?

        Windows vs Linux information for a taxing game like Deus Ex is relevant to a GPU buyer... 300 vs 350 fps in OpenArena is not.

          I think most of the difference comes down to game-specific driver tweaks in catalyst

            I also wonder how Mad Max compares with windows 10, now that it has a good Linux Vulkan renderer.

              Given Microsoft's Windows 10 Creators Update earlier this month and the never-ending advancements to the open-source Linux graphics driver stack along with the recent release of Ubuntu 17.04, here are some fresh benchmarks of Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux when running a wide variety of cross-platform games with an AMD Radeon RX 580 and R9 Fury graphics cards.

              I'm seeing the charts show up in little scrollable boxes (beacuse they're <object> tags), I think it would work better if you put all the charts in <img> tags. I have a little extension which does this automatically since it's been happening for a while. Unfortunately it has to run on an interval, because the <object> tags seem to show up as you scroll.

                And thanks everyone who has any relation to development of AMD open-source driver and Linux

                  better than half performance everywhere. This means that, in a 500$ PC build, the money saved from using Linux instead of Windows can go to upgrading the CPU from a Pentium 4560 to a FX-6300 and the GPU from a 4GB RX470 to an 8GB RX480. Or maybe keep the Pentium and get a 6GB 1060.

                  This means that when games become more broadly available on Linux, Microsoft is going to have to slash the price of Windows for system builders.

                      If I recall correctly metro redux titles performed better under linux than windows because they are good opengl games.
