The Unigine Heaven benchmark at 1080p still had the RX Vega cards coming in shy of the GTX 1070 performance while the RTX 2060 was 8% lower than the GTX 1080.

With Unigine Superposition, the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver does better with the RX Vega 64 slightly inching out over the GTX 1080 and RTX 2060. The RX 590 performance was also closer to the GTX 1070 than the GTX 1060.

The X-Plane 11 flight simulator is rather CPU heavy in general but particularly at 1080p and here the Radeon cards were close to 20% faster than the NVIDIA cards with their latest proprietary driver.

With the Metro Last Light Redux Linux game port that was once very demanding on GPUs/drivers, the RX Vega 64 performance was close to the RTX 2060 and the RX 590 just frames behind the GTX 1070.

Lastly of the 1080p benchmarks is a look at the harmonic mean of all the frame-rates collected for these 1080p Linux gaming benchmarks. From here we see the RX 590 was generally about 29% faster than the GTX 1060 while the RX Vega 56 comes in just behind the GTX 1070. The RX Vega 64 came in at 5% faster than the GTX 1070. The GeForce RTX 2060 at $349 USD meanwhile came in at 9% faster than the RX Vega 64 while generally being cheaper this current top-end Vega card (to be outdone soon by Radeon VII). The GeForce RTX 2060 1080p Linux gaming performance was just 3% lower than the GeForce GTX 1080.
