AMDGPU-PRO 18.30 Pro/Open vs. Upstream Mesa OpenGL/Vulkan Radeon Benchmarks
In the Vulkan-based Thrones of Britannia, the performance was very close in the four tested configurations. The PRO driver lost with the RX 580 but did deliver better frame-rates with the RX Vega 64.
At 1080p with ultra quality settings, the driver performance remained close.
4K with low quality settings is still playable on the RX Vega 64.
X-Plane 11 was running the fastest with the Mesa 18.3 + Linux 4.18 configuration.
The Unigine Superposition performance was very close between the drivers tested.
Lastly with Unigine Heaven, the PRO OpenGL driver still maintained a lead over the RadeonSI options with the demanding Unigine Heaven benchmark.
