    Phoronix: Ubuntu 14.04 To Ubuntu 17.10 RadeonSI OpenGL Performance

    As part of the multi-year comparisons for marking AMD's open-source strategy being 10 years old, here's a look back with fresh OpenGL Linux gaming benchmarks from Ubuntu 14.04 through Ubuntu 17.10 using a Radeon HD 7950 graphics card with the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver. There's also a similar comparison with a Radeon R9 Fury.

    Pretty amazing difference in just 2 years. I imagine the differences would be even greater using a weaker GPU, due lessened bottlenecks from outside sources (CPU, PCIe bus, RAM, etc).

      WOW! +50-100 fps in xonotic and openarena. Thanks for testing openarena, really appreciated

          Michael : could you verify if 16.04 LTS ran Mesa 17 as it says in the data table?
          If so, how did it Happen? Do Ubuntu LTS images get the later Hardware enablements automaticaly? Then it would not represent the original out of the box perf.

            Latest HWE (16.04.3) runs kernel 4.10 as far as I know, but the data table says 4.4.

              I downloaded the original 16.04.0 from old-releases.ubuntu.com, but would need to check to see if when installing steam via the package archive if it ended up pulling in the newer Mesa packages.

                Great job everyone working on FLOSS Radeon drivers, I really appreciate the effort and effect it got!

                  It has always been exciting to see how the open source community grows and these projects becoming mature. I will try to help more projects adopting OpenCL so that maybe one day I can finally get rid of the NVidia tool chain. (Not exactly related to these testing, but from previous testing on rocm everything seems bright, and I really hold a grudge with the NVidia tool chain after many sleepless nights)

                    That's really encouraging for open source drivers on AMD.
