    True.

    Recently I wanted to see just how good so I ran the Windows version of GravityMark through plain WINE-Staging with the latest DXVK 1.10.2 + stable nVidia 515 driver.

    For comparison's sake, here are two Windows results with the very same benchmark settings I competed with:

    1.
    - Microsoft Windows 11 Pro 10.0.22000
    - AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-Core Processor
    - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (non-Ti)
    Score: 22,154


    2.
    - Microsoft Windows 11 Pro 10.0.22593
    - AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16-Core Processor
    - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
    Score: 23,375


    And here is my result with the very same settings on Intel i7-11700F + Ubuntu Budgie 22.04 LTS but running in OpenBox, because the Mutter-based compositor had problems running the benchmark with uncapped framerates:



    Not bad I'd say, considering the best-in-class Windows DX11 driver by nVidia vs. running translated to Vulkan via DXVK on Linux!

    Current driver is no where near acceptable for mainline.

    I did. Had to roll back to 510 on a Mint installation on a 1060 laptop. It's a very real bug and I don't intend to move back to 515 anytime soon.
