Vulkan vs. OpenGL Performance For Linux Games
Thrones of Britannia at 1080p with low quality settings was very much playable on this hardware. The average frame-rates were similar between the RX 560 and GTX 1050 Ti while the peak frame-rate was higher on the NVIDIA side.
With medium quality settings at 1080p, these cards are hitting just below the 60 FPS mark.
The CPU usage for what it's worth was similar between these two cards/drivers for this Vulkan-powered Linux game port.
Well, hopefully you found these extra results worthwhile if you are in the market for a lower-end graphics card like the RX 560 or GTX 1050 series. There are some further Linux gaming test results on this setup via OpenBenchmarking.org.
