    Phoronix: Radeon Windows 10 vs. Linux RadeonSI/RADV Gaming Performance

    On Monday I published a Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux gaming performance comparison with NVIDIA GeForce graphics while today the tables have turned and is a Windows vs. Linux gaming benchmark battle with AMD Radeon graphics.

    Too bad 17.2.1 was released just two days ago, since that is newer 16.60 branch. And 17.1.2 is latest of older 16.50, stable going on from september if you want.

    So not really new, but OK it was latest available at the time

      Wow, I was not expecting the performance to be so close in so many tests. radeonSI obviously has much room for performance improvements, but it is already very competitive against Windows. Very exciting.

          Unfortunately AMDGPU-PRO doesn't work on 16.10 yet and was already a ton of work doing this comparison as is.... (and judging from the NVIDIA article, I only got 2 or 3 new subscribers, so really barely covered costs for all of that benchmarking as is and remains to be seen if will get any new subscribers or donations from this article)

              Just general shader cache, general stabilty if improved and that threaded GL enabled here and there, together with s3tc by default (should expire in october this year)...

              Basically as someone said, one year more and it should be fine

                Wow, those Talos numbers are really depressing... Going from 280 FPS on D3D11 to 63 FPS on Linux. A quarter of the performance isn't really uplifting.

                  Quite interesting pair of articles.

                  Comparing the results, we can see that nvidia 1060 prop driver and amd r480 radeonsi are comparable (with 1060 a few fps more) on most games (except 2 games not yet optimized on radeonsi, and unigine, but possibly nvidia is replacing formats or doing tricks for unigine, so...).

                    what are you talking about? The Talos Principle?
