Intel Arc Graphics A770: Windows 11 vs. Linux Benchmarks
First up was the cross-platform GrabityMark graphics benchmark that offers good Windows and Linux native support. With the Vulkan renderer used on both Windows and Linux, the Windows 11 performance was about 18% higher than the current Linux 6.2 + Mesa 23.0-devel open-source driver stack.
It was satisfying to see Cyberpunk 2077 working with Arc Graphics on the open-source Linux driver and made possible to run on Linux thanks to Valve's Steam Play... But the performance was much lower on Linux than Windows. While the recent NVIDIA Windows vs. Linux benchmarks showed quite good performance for Cyberpunk 2077 with Steam Play, the Arc Graphics A770 driver support could improve a lot for this popular Windows game.
Hopefully ANV Vulkan driver improvements will come to further enhance the Cyberpunk 2077 performance. As covered recently, in kernel-space Intel is also developing the new "Xe" DRM driver that in due course will also hopefully help maximize the performance optimizations possible with DG2/Alchemist hardware.
The F1 22 game was running with the Arc Graphics A770 but failed to run with the current Linux driver stack:
