AMD Radeon RX 590 Linux Benchmarks, 18-Way NVIDIA/AMD Gaming Comparison
First up was the F1 2017 racing game, which is the newest version in the F1 franchise with a native Linux port, which was done by Feral and rendered on Linux using the Vulkan graphics API. In this case at 4K with low quality settings, the RX 590 could run above 60 FPS including its minimum frame-rate not dipping below that threshold. The RX 590 came out just 14% faster than the RX 580 but was now enough to put it in line with the GTX 980 Ti and just about the R9 Fury on Linux.
The F1 2018 racing game can run on Linux via Steam Play and its Direct3D rendering is translated to Vulkan using DXVK. For this game the RX 590 is actually faster than the GTX 980 Ti and surprisingly right behind the GTX 1070. Though do note the mainline NVIDIA Linux driver was in use that does not have Vulkan transform feedback yet (only their buggy beta driver) while RADV with the AMD GPUs does have this extension enabled and working, which may explain this very competitive showing by the Radeon GPUs for F1 2018 on Steam Play for now.
Batman: Arkhan Origins is the newest Batman game currently running fine on Steam Play under Linux. But for this Proton+DXVK test case, the Radeon results were less impressive. The RX 590 was just 9% faster than the RX 580 in this case.
