NVIDIA vs. AMDGPU-PRO vs. RadeonSI OpenGL Comparison For Holidays 2016
With Tesseract the RadeonSI performance is faster than AMDGPU-PRO's OpenGL.
The open vs. closed AMD driver performance is very close these days with Unigine Heaven.
Xonotic is one of the Linux games that continues to do well for AMD on both the open and closed drivers. Here the results are very competitive, but as shown by these results is rather an outlier.
