    Phoronix: Mesa 13.0 vs. 17.0 Performance For RADV/RadeonSI: Big Gains For Vulkan, OpenGL Boosts

    With Mesa 17.0 due to be released in the days ahead, I've been running fresh benchmarks of this latest user-space 3D driver stack on Intel, Radeon, and Nouveau. For your viewing pleasure this Thursday are the RadeonSI benchmarks comparing the Mesa 17.0 Git code to that of the latest Mesa 13.0 branch with a few different AMD graphics cards. There are also some tests of the RADV Vulkan driver.

    That Deus Ex graph, wow!

      Yeah, DEx:MD going from very low looks like incredible boost.

      On the other hand, people should be optimistic and ignore these couple regressions i guess, no?

        Wow. Very nice improvements... Won't be long before AMD gfx is actually viable for gaming on Linux. And open source drivers.... My next GFX device might not be NVidia.

          Considering the regression was on open arena.... and that it still can hit over 120 fps.... -_O_-

            Warning, it is a Russian roulette to use stock kernels with amdgpu driver. See the diff column for amdgpu driver in kernel.org and compare to this:
            https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...-next-4.11-wip
            In the stock kernels are very little new amdgou driver code.

            Latest polaris firmware, does not work with stock kernels.

              Michael why you test Talos only at 4k? The FPS is so low, please consider including 1080p test next time/

                Yeah Openarena if we ignore Tesseract and Xonotic a bit here and there

                  Xonotic is likely within error, but all three games easily hit >120 fps regardless.

                    I don't understand, what are you trying to say regarding the diff numbers? Please elaborate.
