    Then don't switch and don't dual boot and don't...

    This is just Michael running couple tests at this day and time, that does not mean it must be the same for someone else or tomorrow... things are not written on stone so you must follow that

      no. depending on driver performance you'll choose game order. while you finish fast ones, driver will be fixed for others

        Some benchmarks look very good for mesa, but basically if you want to play new Linux games today and not in 6 months i would still prefer a green card.

          This. I refrained from buying Deus Ex because I knew it wouldn't run on my current card, which is a 6870. I doubt it will ever run on this card, but my point is that I am buying games that will run fine on my hardware, drivers included.

          Tomb Raider ran pretty good on my card, excepted in some large areas where the FPS count could dip under 30 at times.
          Interestingly, though, turning tesselation on would make most of Lara, as well as the waves, disappear. I finished it in a couple of long game sessions (maybe 3*7h, I don't remember exactly), and the performance always got somewhat sluggish near the end. Rebooting the game solved the issue, each time.

          TR is one of these "console ports" where running at sub-60 is acceptable, in my opinion.

            There even sub 30 is acceptable... XBOne actually never goes above 30 fps

              Which new games? Tomb Raider was released for Linux 3 years after original release and when you attempt to port something newish like DExMD it struggle on nVidia too and require 30% faster hardware than Windows verision to get similar results . When on AMD hardware using blob you wanna about 40% faster hardware and with open it would be halfed or it might touch blob if optimized, etc...

              On average Linux gaming is 60% alcohol and if game is old and fast enough you don't care as you already have fast enough hardware from future

                lol. rottr is far from playable with low frame rates. I don't think it was very different in tr2013. However, I haven't played it for quite some time, I should test this.

                Nice to see that Mesa progress, but what's actually wrong with the pro gl driver and TR?
                Still waiting for some rottr vulkan port

                  The funny thing is, even if you have got enough money, you can not buy 40 % faster AMD hardware today. But in theory you could get a GTX 1080 or faster. It still might be only enough for 1080p.

                  So you basically suggest not to play those games or use Windows? Many new ports are more than 10 % faster with Nvidia at the beginning (if you are lucky this changes over time) usually compared to similar AMD cards.

                  Btw. TR ran ok, not really fast, but playable as single user game with my GTX 650 Ti at 1920x1200. I never used Windows to complete the game. Also Dirt Showdown works great, but if you want to play newer games with more FX you should consider certainly faster hardware.

                    There was a performance update by the Linux port developer (Feral) shortly after initial Tomb Raider Linux release.

                      basically if you prefer a green card, you are better off playing on windows anyway. but then you prefer a red card unless you are nvidiot http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...review-23.html
