    Is it just me, or does the nvidia OpenGL performance look rather low compared to radeonsi?
    Yeah, 480 is faster than a 1070, Fury almost even with 1080 Ti. What is wrong here?

      Its the scheduler. As I've been noting for YEARS now, the scheduler is sucking down CPU performance in certain situations, gaming being the most obvious. The switch from OGL to Vulkan is freeing up enough CPU time where the GPU is able to do its job, but OGL can put up similar performance numbers if the scheduler is fixed.

        Finally a developed driver that could show how good Vulkan really is.
        I hope to see it used in games for Windows too, since I will never upgrade from Windows 7 to the crappy W8 or spyware W10.
        I will definitely look to buy, in the future, only games who use Vulkan so I can play them on both Windows 7 or Linux.

          But what we - at least I - want to know is when it is better than directx (I supose sometimes is and others not) under WINE and under native MS WOS, and if you want to work a bit more with MS WOS under Xen an KVM GPU pass through VMs.

          And that is the battle, because if Vulkan beats directx, and even better Vulkan under GNU/Linux beats also Vulkan under MS WOS, then gamer users will switch to GNU/Linux, and gamer users are a small, but big enough computer market share.
          I found this video showing the performance of the same cards except the 1080 ti on windows. The performance looks fairly close to the benchmark results in this article.
