AMD Ryzen 5 5600G / Ryzen 7 5700G Linux Gaming Benchmarks
Recently with my Linux benchmarks of the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G Zen 3 APUs with Radeon Vega graphics I touched on the GPU graphics/compute performance in some of the basic benchmarks while in this article are a number of Steam Play and native Linux gaming benchmarks for looking at the potential for these latest-generation desktop APUs for Linux gaming.
This round of benchmarking is looking at the gaming potential out of the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G which as shown in the prior articles offer much greater integrated graphics potential than what is current provided by Intel desktop processors. For providing a fresh look at the 5600G/5700G Linux gaming performance, Linux 5.14 and Mesa 21.3-devel were providing the latest open-source graphics stack.
The same software/hardware stack was used throughout testing with just swapping out the AMD APUs for this article. Both native Linux games and Steam Play for Windows games n Linux atop Proton/DXVK were used for looking at the performance of the Ryzen 5600G/5700G hardware with open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D and RADV Vulkan drivers on Ubuntu 21.10 daily.
