Mesa RADV vs. AMDVLK Radeon Vulkan Performance For July 2021
With the new GravityMark benchmark from Tellusim, founded by a former Unigine lead developer, it's our first time looking at the performance against AMDVLK. The Mesa RADV driver performs significantly better here than using AMDVLK.
With Batman: Arkham Knight the game was hanging with AMDVLK using the 2021.Q3.1 driver.
Meanwhile with DiRT Rally 2.0 running on Linux via Steam Play the game was running on AMDVLK but RADV continues delivering significantly better performance on the RX 6800 XT.
Similarly, Dawn of War III that was one of the original Vulkan-powered options by Feral Interactive with their Linux game ports, saw Mesa's RADV continuing to deliver much better performance than AMDVLK. Using RADV with the new "NGGC" option continues helping to squeeze out an extra frame or two in most cases.
AMDVLK 2021.Q3.1 was performing quite poorly with F1 2020 running on Linux via Steam Play.
