    Phoronix: 20-Way Linux Graphics Card Comparison For Total War: Three Kingdoms

    Total War: Three Kingdoms is the newest Linux game port from Feral Interactive and saw a same-day release back in May. While back then it was said there weren't benchmarking capabilities for this game, there now is a test profile. For those wondering how Three Kingdoms performs on Linux, here is a twenty way graphics card comparison using the newest AMD Radeon and NVIDIA drivers.

    Thanks, but it's still better than the blower (and I'm getting the Mech, cheaper). I know I could get a bit more but the Sapphire is close to 50 bucks more, and I really don't need it. If I didn't have a good offer on buying my current graphics card I would have waited for Navi 14 (and probably price drops).
    Sounds reasonable Just thought I'd give you the info to help with your decision.

    In summary: bad thermal pad positioning results in unnecessarily high VRM temps. He prefers the Sapphire Pulse cooling system.

    Thank you for the comparison !

    Even with support still seeming a bit dodgy, I'm pretty happy with ordering a RX5700 (MSI custom).

    Michael why RX 580 is missing in performance/cost chart?

    Yeah generally these Total games have really low FPS compared to the visuals IMHO, same on Windows. Not sure what they're doing...

    Pretty much every benchmark has shown a pretty small performance up tick for the AIB cards (1-2% at best), just much better thermals.

    If it helps, I get ~31.3 fps on default ultra @ 1440p with my GTX 1070 and 3700X. Three Kingdoms seems to be fairly GPU bottlenecked on Linux at least. Windows benchmarks but the 1070 around 35 fps, but the rx 5700 xt over 50 fps.

    Hopefully I will be able to get a 2080TI in another month or so, provided the Australia economy doesn't collapse any further between now and then.
    Going to be great! I just wish nvidia would bring all these nice windows features to linux which lacks so much!

    Gaming in the apocalypse with a 2080TI will be great!
