Lastly for this look at the current GPUs and Linux drivers are the geometric means for all of these games on Linux that ran successfully on all twenty tested graphics cards. As it stands right now with Linux 5.5 + Mesa 20.1-devel with ACO, the Radeon RX 5700 XT is on average coming out just ahead of the RTX 2070, the Radeon VII is tieing with the RTX 2070 SUPER, the Radeon RX 5700 is performing similar to the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, and the Radeon RX 5600 XT is offering comparable performance to the RX Vega 64 and RTX 2060. The Radeon RX 590 Polaris graphics card with its mature open-source support is still holding its ground between the GTX 1650 SUPER and GTX 1070 along with the Radeon RX 5500 XT.
