RADV vs. AMDGPU-PRO Vulkan Performance vs. OpenGL In May 2017
With this latest Mad Max testing, the fastest performance appears to be with the RadeonSI driver stack.
In some Mad Max scenes, the AMDGPU-PRO Vulkan and RadeonSI OpenGL results are very competitive.
The Mad Max CPU utilization is generally lower with the Vulkan drivers over OpenGL.
Those are the latest tests I've completed this week for those wondering how the different Radeon Linux options are running. Join Phoronix Premium if you wish to show your support and help allow for future large hardware/driver comparisons.
