With Mad Max there are the four difference scenes for the benchmark. In these tests we found the Core i5 7600K + Radeon RX 580 to be faster with Vulkan over OpenGL while on the two higher-end systems, the OpenGL results tended to be better but in the other scenes it was a close race between GL and Vulkan performance.

The CPU usage remained much lower for this game when using Vulkan.
