    Phoronix: F1 2017 On Linux With 23 Graphics Cards, NVIDIA + AMDGPU-PRO + RADV

    Following various F1 2017 Linux gaming benchmarks over the past few days since this game's Linux release this past Thursday with a port to Vulkan, here is a 23-way graphics card comparison for this formula one racing game while having coverage of the NVIDIA, AMDGPU-PRO, and RADV Vulkan drivers atop Ubuntu Linux.

    Few suggestions about benchmarks:
    1) Adding some legend on color coding of results on visible place looks like great idea. I had to re-read results several times before getting idea what is where (e.g. which results are for opensource and PRO drivers)
    2) I think it is more than fair to put all failures together with all results. Awarding score of 0 or some special FAIL badge, etc. This would make FAILs far more visible and maybe evemn would encourage devs to fix major, glaring, user-visible issues, after all.
    3) It would also be great to see explanation on why like a half of results are missing here and there. For all tests. If e.g. driver has failed it, it is really good thing to know. Especially when ppl decide on buying game/gpu/etc.

    Really upset to see that Hawaii still sucks. Makes me feel like SUCH a valued customer. Delay fixing the issue for so long that you can claim it's an outdated card that you don't need to support or something. Feels like every time these articles come out, they talk about how great the improvements are... except Hawaii still sucks.

    It works for other Vulkan games, but for AMDGPU+RADV and F1 2017 I haven't got it working yet with any 1.0/1.1 cards

I own that one, so I guess a similar question..
    I used to play War Thunder with a GTX 950 on Linux pretty regularly. Mixture of medium/high settings IIRC, certainly did 1080p60 easily. It certainly helps that it has a native Linux client though. Used to run my LAN party PC as Linux only until the group I generally played with shifted to mostly Overwatch and PUBG. Used to play a lot of War Thuder and CS:GO on it. CS:GO on Linux is a little funky, the framerate swings wildly (200-300 fps) and v-sync is really broke. Since CS:Go at maximum settings runs at like 200 fps on a 950, I would use the game's console to set a framerate cap at like 180 to make it work better.

    no one want this inferior amdgpu-pro closed source vulkan implementation anymore so please drop it. and just put RADV in the AMDGPU-pro driver instead.
    Apparently AMDs optimization work on the cross platform Vulkan driver has been focused around windows. Which is why their Vulkan driver is so fast on windows. Hopefully once they optimize more for Linux it will become as fast here too...

    I think the huge page support (if I got that name right) is going to be a major boost for vega.

    Still - good playable numbers, though I am hoping the difference between 56 and 64 becomes bigger
