    Phoronix: 10-Way NVIDIA GeForce Linux Vulkan Performance For F1 2017

    Today marked the Linux release of F1 2017, which was ported by Feral Interactive and with this port it went from being a Direct3D 11 game on Windows to exclusively making use of the Vulkan graphics API on Linux. Radeon GPU benchmarks are still ongoing, but for these launch-day benchmarks, here are F1 2017 performance numbers on Ubuntu Linux with a variety of GeForce graphics cards.

    Numbers look very good.

    seems like Feral has done a good job.

    of course we need to ensure it doesn't underperform the windows version before congratulating them...

      absolute numbers have ever been meaningless. are meaningless now and will forever be absolutely meaningless.
      waste of energy.

      warning spoiler: Yes, the windows performance is significantly better.

        Perfomance are good, nVidia usually underperform in vulkan but gtx1080 seems to perform better in this feral release. Check here http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages..._review,5.html
        I think the only bottleneck here is the nvidia vulkan driver.

          Michael , can you compare it with Windows?

          Because it seems like when same hardware runs it nearly 40 percent faster on Windows with DirectX 11 , Linux port with Vulkan is looks pretty poor.

            If they have written a DX11 in Vulkan layer, I would be pretty damn happy - since that would let them port more games and work on performance that boosts all games too

              Only if there were many premium supports requesting it... Time consuming benchmark and would need many changes to even get this test running on Windows in a comparable manner.

                The tests uses the top CPU to show what the cards can do when they arent bottlenecked by the CPU.

                It'd be interesting to see the other way, where the top videocard is used with a range of CPUs from low to high (until bottlenecked by videocard).
                That way we could construct an approximate list of tuple(CPU,GPU,FPS)-s where the CPU and GPU doesnt really bottleneck each other, and the FPS we can expect from those in Linux.

                  Why do you think Nvidia underperform in Vulkan? They don't. AMD's Vulkan performance may be better in the well optimized windows driver but...

                  on Linux Nvidia Vulkan is easily faster than AMD. AMD are the ones who underperform on Linux Vulkan. It's something nobody expected after all the promotion regarding thinner driver layers, using mantle as a starting point etc... But sadly it happened.
