    Phoronix: Total War: WARHAMMER - AMD RadeonSI Linux Performance

    Shortly after Total War: WARHAMMER was released for Linux by Feral Interactive we had out NVIDIA Linux WARHAMMER benchmarks. Now having more time since that OpenGL Linux game port release on Tuesday, here are benchmarks when using the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver stack with various AMD GCN graphics cards.

    A quite decent performance of the AMD cards. They could still perform about 20-25% better when the game and the driver were optimal(assuming that the NV drivers are already optimal which might be wrong) but for OpenGL the performance in the last tests where more shaders may be used is really nice compared to what we have sometimes seen so far.
    I'm looking forward to the first Vulkan games that can keep the GPU utilization higher. Before that happens I would not believe that the performance improves more than something like 5-10% just on the driver side.

      Michael, would be great if you included the R9 290!

        It's not included because with the open-source stack my card is still regressed (performing extremely poor). Obviously would have included it otherwise.

          If the 290 has issues then you can bet your arse the 390 also has regression issues. So that is TWO flagship cards that are essentially broken with the RadeonSI driver! allot of people still have 290/390 cards and are not going to waste money buying a rx480 at this time!!! so AMD you really should fix these regression issues ASAP because those two cards are VERY common.

            R9 290 and R( 390 are GCN 1.1 Hawaii cards and Amd has currently no interest to enable powerplay, see:

              Maybe 290 and 390 cards should be used with the radeon kernel driver, see:

                Except you are wrong, GCN 1.1 has PowerPlay but it's not called PowerPlay since its older power management, that's my understanding.

                  As you see the driver does not have support for HAWAII.

                    But the radeon driver seems to have.
