More AMDGPU DC + RadeonSI/RADV vs. NVIDIA Linux OpenGL+Vulkan Benchmarks
Last week I published the Radeon RX Vega Performance With Mesa 17.3-dev + LLVM 6 + drm-next-4.15-dc article offering a fresh look at the RX Vega 56/64 Linux performance using the new AMDGPU DC code that's likely to be merged in Linux 4.15. As well, the latest Mesa 17.3-dev Git code built against LLVM 6.0 SVN while all compared to the latest NVIDIA driver. Out of that article came some premium requests to see a larger comparison, so here that is.
Using the same driver combinations on Ubuntu 17.04 with the same box in the aforelinked article, the comparison now consists of:
- Radeon R9 285
- Radeon RX 560
- Radeon RX 580
- Radeon R9 Fury
- Radeon RX Vega 56
- Radeon RX Vega 64
- GeForce GTX 970
- GeForce GTX 980
- GeForce GTX 980 Ti
- GeForce GTX 1050
- GeForce GTX 1060
- GeForce GTX 1070
- GeForce GTX 1080
- GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Due to being short on time due to Coffee Lake, all of the results are embedded below in a one-page view -- similar to how Phoronix Premium members get to see all featured articles on Phoronix: as a single-page, ad-free.

RadeonSI could still use some more improvements for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. But will be interesting to see how it goes when the new CS:GO update is out soon with Vulkan support.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has come a long way on RadeonSI compared to its subpar performance when the Feral port was first released.
But still more work could be done.
The current Dota 2 OpenGL vs. Vulkan numbers...
And the graphics API difference with Dawn of War III.
