    Even with support still seeming a bit dodgy, I'm pretty happy with ordering a RX5700 (MSI custom).
    Of course.
    Navi seems to be nice, but I'll wait for big Navi or later 'cause I need 'new' 4k+ monitors then, too...

    With current Mesa drivers...
    Now, do it again with Navi/radeonsi updates...
    Starting, here:
    radeonsi/gfx10: fix the legacy pipeline by storing as_ngg in the shader cache
    https://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/me...3ec6a3234935a2

    over
    radeonsi: align scratch and ring buffer allocations for faster memory access
    https://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/me...cb1dbb2654ce08

    to
    radeonsi: fix scratch buffer WAVESIZE setting leading to corruption
    https://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/me...b5097b0fd0be82

    Right, sorry I didn't notice that! In this case it'd also be interesting to add AMDVLK and/or its pro version to the comparison. What do you think?

    Stock, that's all I have. It's been a number of years since Sapphire or other AMD AIBs sent out review samples to me for Linux tests.

    Could the FPS bar graphs be tweaked so the average reported is the only thing in the bar itself with the min/max numbers in black right below the bar? Bottom of page one and on, most of the information below the Radeon VII and 5700 XT becomes gibberish with all the overlaying text due to how it compresses it to try to fit it all within the confines of the average of the bar used. That would probably require shifting the bars to the top of the separating hash mark to fit the text below, but it would make the FPS graphs a lot more readable.

    Anyways, thanks for letting me know my 580 sucks
    Patches certainly welcome for any graphing improvements.
    The particular code in question is right: https://github.com/phoronix-test-sui..._bars.php#L184

    I'd be very interested to see a CPU comparison on this game considering the Total War series is usually CPU bound. Speaking of which, I wonder when that Ryzen 3000 gaming benchmark is going to be.
    Thursday should be for the 9900K vs. 3900X.
