    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst On Windows vs. Open-Source Radeon On Linux

    Here's the third installment of our Windows vs. Linux OpenGL benchmarking this week... This is a look at how the AMD Catalyst closed-source driver on Windows compares to AMD's latest open-source driver code on Linux.

    Thanks

    Would be cool if you had thrown in the directX 11 results for Unigine heaven on Windows.
    open source has a way to go to catch up with catalyst openGL performance, which in turn has some way to go to catch up with directX 11 performance.
    The DX11 performance level should be the ultimate goal, not the Catalyst openGL level.

      He, he, but Catalyst on Linux should be now faster then OpenGL on Windows at least in those tests... drop that buggy Skylake in the water

      Anyway thanks for the opensource driver test.

        Metro and the like would have been good to add.

        Doing a Nvidia windows vs oss linux one also?

          Not too useful when re-clocking is still not too good shape for Kepler and no GTX 900 series hw accel.

            Yes, I agree.Although the OSS linux support is slower than the Catalyst windows support, it -is- the comparison that makes most sense.

              For me Catalyst Linux is faster then Catalyst on Windows, although i tested on Bonaire month ago with Xonotic and Valley... but on Windows 7 not 10.

              Valley on Catalyst Linux was faster then both OpenGL and DX9 renderers on WIndows, but not DX11 (got on Linux somewhat 85% of it)

                Not worth testing. The nouveau drivers struggle to keep up with the closed source.

                  Is the open source driver on DRI3 or DRI2, would be nice to know!

                    Whoops, forgot to mention it in the article... DRI3.
