F1 2017, the latest in the F1 franchise having a native Linux port and rendered using Vulkan, saw the most uplift on the Radeon RX 6800 series. That's to be expected given at the time of launch day there was still the Mesa patch pending for correct compute unit calculation on the non-XT model, as noted in the original launch day article. The RX 6800 XT performance didn't see much change but the older RX 5700 XT and Radeon VII graphics cards are still seeing their performance improve on the latest Linux graphics driver code.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider, running natively on Linux with Vulkan thanks to the Feral port, saw big wins using the newer Mesa code and Linux kernel. All of the tested graphics cards including the original Navi and Radeon VII were enjoying much better performance on the new code compared to back in November.
