        As the latest benchmark article on Phoronix has shown there's still a lot of performance regression present Mesa 17.1. Let's just hope that it will be ironed out with the final release.

          Doom isn't compliant with the Vulkan spec, so no. Dave has long had a small patch that fixes Doom, but it's not going upstream because they want to encourage devs to fix their apps instead of working around everything in the drivers.

              True, but it works fantastic on Wine as long as you have an Nvidia card, or use the AMDGPU-Pro drivers, but those drivers are kinda spotty and only work with specific kernels and distros.
