    Phoronix: NVIDIA Vulkan Driver Shows Impressive Mad Max Linux Performance

    Hours ago I posted some RADV vs. RadeonSI results on Mad Max which showed much progress for this first Feral Interactive Vulkan Linux game while the NVIDIA results do show much more impressive performance capabilities with this new graphics API. Here are some of my initial NVIDIA GeForce results for OpenGL vs. Vulkan with Mad Max on Linux while additional tests are on the way.

    I'd like to request Linux vs. Windows Mad Max benchmarks. It's very low priority, but I merely wonder if Vulkan can do better than DirectX.

      Unfortunately with Mad Max I don't believe there is an equivalent benchmark mode on Windows to Feral's benchmark mode with this being a new addition to the vulkan beta. But if there is, happy to tesf.

        Finally some really solid numbers showing why Vulkan is a better API than OpenGL. An excellent side by side comparison. Thank you Michael for informing the community on why this API change is a good thing.

          Michael found a new favourite toy Anyway, some impressive numbers there, let's hope RADV catches up at some point. And Kudos to Feral for actually going Vulkan.

            A user on Reddit saw the OGL performance dropping quite a bit with the beta of MadMax compared to the non beta. In his tests, Vulkan on 1.1 is better but not by much than OGL on 1.0. I'm curious if it's the same on Michael's system.

              As the GPU is maxed out, I see no reason for a Windows version to be faster. At best the performance would be more or less equivalent.

                geearf probably they added new features for 1.1

                Yes Win DX vs Linux Vulkan would be a interesting read.

                  Maybe that or maybe a regression. Not sure yet.

                    Is it just me, or does the nvidia OpenGL performance look rather low compared to radeonsi?
