This Chart Shows How The Radeon RX 580 vs. GeForce GTX 1060 Now Compete Under Linux
Given the extreme competitiveness of the Radeon RX 580 and GeForce GTX 1060 with yesterday's couple of Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmarks, I decided to go deeper with these two graphics cards and test them across dozens of configurations with this latest Linux game port, released yesterday by Feral Interactive.
Like yesterday, the Radeon RX 580 tests were done with Linux 4.16.2 with Mesa 18.1-dev via the Padoka PPA. The NVIDIA tests on the same system were done with the latest NVIDIA 396.18 beta driver.
It's quite a thorough look at the Rise of the Tomb Raider performance with these competing graphics cards across different resolutions, quality levels, and anti-aliasing configurations... Made possible by the Phoronix Test Suite.
I certainly didn't expect to see the Radeon RX 580 being near universally faster than the GeForce GTX 1060. In only two cases did the RX 580 lose to the GTX 1060 in this Vulkan-powered AAA Linux game port.
In some cases, the race was very tight.
And in other areas more significant lead for the RX 580...
And quite significant in other scenarios. Now if only Vega had this level of mature support in RADV (and RadeonSI)...
