The old, defunct Nexuiz game actually runs faster on Linux with the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver stack than Catalyst 15.11 Beta on Windows 10.

However, with the basic OpenArena 0.8.8 game, Windows 10 and the binary blob was faster than the pure open-source stack on Ubuntu.

Unigine Heaven, one of the most demanding Linux OpenGL test cases, was significantly slower for the two tested AMD GCN graphics cards at both 1080p and 4K.
