    Phoronix: Windows 10 Radeon Software vs. Ubuntu 17.04 + Linux 4.12 + Mesa 17.2-dev

    With having carried out a new Windows 10 install this week for the latest Windows 10 WSL / VirtualBox benchmarking, I used this as a fresh opportunity for some new Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux benchmark figures.

    It might be interesting to see some day comparison between Windows/DX vs Windows/OpenGL(Vulkan) vs Linux for tests where there is an option to use different rendering modes.

        now it is like 50% Opensource linux wins to 50% closed source windows wins.

        I think in 2-3 Months the closed source windows driver is obsolete.

          Basically, better than Windows in anything that's not a game
          But seriously, that's great progress.

            Basically game ports suck.

              The problem with games that are ports from Windows is that it's hard to tell how much performance loss is due to porting.

                The high end of AMDs GPUs have a mixed high and low level of support in Linux, compared to the middle end GPUs. My 6970 never got much advantage compared to the 6870. The 7970 performance was good. The R9 290X for a while had mixed results, but is good in general, compared to the 270. Now the R9 Fury have mixed results again, compared to the RX480/470.

                When my R9 290 got screen corruption, I almost replaced it with a R9 Fury/Nano, but could not justify the large gap in price with the low gap in performance on a big set of games.

                I hope the high end Vega could be well supported, to open a large gap in performance to the middle end ones.

                  Would be more interesting to see data on "well made" games that aren't just wrappers on Linux. Unfortunately, that number of games is extremely low. I think Dota 2 is the only one I know of, where the rendering backends are completely native on all platforms.

                    When you see some ports having similar, and even better perf than on native windows, and on top of that with open source driver. I would be microsoft I'd really start to worry. If all these games were native...
