    Phoronix: Mesa 17.1-dev vs. AMDGPU-PRO 16.60 vs. NVIDIA 378 Linux Gaming Tests

    Following last week's AMDGPU-PRO 16.60 hybrid driver release I delivered some early AMDGPU-PRO vs. AMDGPU+RadeonSI benchmark results using the newest driver code. After a few more days of testing, in this article is a larger OpenGL and Vulkan comparison when testing AMDGPU-PRO 16.60 and AMDGPU+RadeonSI of Mesa 17.1 + Linux 4.10 on various Radeon GPUs. On the NVIDIA side are fresh GeForce tests with the company's newest 378.09 beta driver.

      rx 460 performs badly on open source
      does someone at AMD know why, or better has a fix for it?

          Yep, buy Nvidia.

            The 460 is faster with open source than closed source on all the games that don't start with 'D'.

            Looks like it is faster with open source on more games than it's slower, although running DOTA 2 tests at two different resolutions with the brand new radv open driver does skew the results a bit.

            (not 100% right, open source is slower on Xonotic and faster on DOTA 2 with OpenGL at 4K)

              RX 460 was like that since beginning, lower than expected performer on opensource driver even in many cases slower than R7 260 Bonaire. RX 460 should not be sometimes but *always* faster than that ... so yeah there is something weird with P11 specifically, i guess no one of opensource devs has a card

              I wouldn't consider comparison with amdgpu-pro driver as much valuable or to claim where things should be, since that has their own perf regressions since fglrx time

                Is Shadow of Mordor going to be added to the testing suite? That Feral representative from the other thread said there was a CLI option to launch it.

                  I emailed their support team back when it was mentioned in that thread... So far I got a response Friday saying they were going to check in on it, but so far haven't heard back.
