Some Fresh Linux 4.8 + Mesa 12.1-dev OpenGL Benchmarks For Radeon GPUs
Tests were done with a Radeon R9 270X, R7 370, R9 Fury, and RX 480 as just some quick, one-page-article testing. The RX 480, of course, could only be tested on this Git stack and not the out-of-the-box Ubuntu 16.04 (Linux 4.4 + Mesa 11.2) stack since it lacked the RX 400 Polaris series support.
The Mesa 12.1-dev Git was from Padoka PPA and the Linux 4.8 code was from Git as of last week.
In Metro Last Light Redux it's a big performance difference...
Though it's not a big deal for all tests... At least with Mesa Git there is currently OpenGL 4.3 support as opposed to OpenGL 4.1 on older versions of Mesa/LLVM.
