    Phoronix: 1080p Linux Gaming Performance - NVIDIA 415.22 vs. Mesa 19.0-devel RADV/RadeonSI

    Stemming from the recent Radeon RX 590 Linux gaming benchmarks were some requests to see more 1080p gaming benchmarks, so here's that article with the low to medium tier graphics cards from the NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon line-up while using the latest graphics drivers on Ubuntu 18.10.

      Interesting that the 1070/ti have a noticeable improvement over the others even at 1080p while the others are mostly even. If I were looking for a new GPU, that would be more useful info than how they perform at resolutions I don't have.

        Interesting to see where RADV / RadeonSI are (mostly) CPU limited and where GPU limited.

          It's actually nice to know that we really only need midrange gear for decent HD gaming and gone are the days of needing ridiculously expensive gear to play games at 1080p/60. I can't wait for FreeSync support to take advantage of all the extra frames.

          Seems like we really only need Vega XX and 1070+ for ultra-wide 1080p and 16:9 1440p; with the 1080/ti being useful for up to 21:9 1440p gaming.

          4K...IMHO, just too hard to justify for maybe 60fps even though one has the most expensive stuff on the market.

            Why no Vega 56 in the comparison?

              To wager a guess, because the 580/590 do 1080p60+ most of the time making the Vega 56 more of a specialty card for 1080p/120 with FreeSync or for 2K at the 60fps standard.

              I would have liked to have seen the RX 560 and the 4 & 8 gb 570s thrown in for The Battle of the Budget.

                Only using Vega 56 (Sapphire Pulse in my case), I was able to get stable 60+ fps in The Witcher 3 (Wine+dxvk) at 1920x1200 even in crowded areas on max settings, hairworks off. Polaris is just not enough to reach it. May be it's one of the most demanding examples, but still. Even AMD themselves position Vega 56 as comparable to GTX 1070, and the later is in the test.

                  GTX 1070 did cost 800 euros in mindfactory.de in Juni 2018. Now it cost around 400 euros here. My Asus RX570 and Asus 4K monitor did cost 478 euros total recently and I can play many games at 4K with good frame rates. So it depends timing and what you buy if 4K gaming is expensive or not. RX 3080 will make 4K gaming more wallet and quality friendly. It is mind blowing to use a 28" 4K monitor after using 24" fullhd monitors over a decade. The Superposition benchmark at 1080p Extreme setting gives avg. 14 fps, so RX570 almost fast as RX580 and RX590.
