The synthetic Furmark results are close...

With the synthetic triangle test via GpuTest, the fully open driver in Mesa 13.1-dev does a much better job than AMDGPU-PRO.

Those are the latest results to share today of AMDGPU-PRO vs. AMDGPU+RadeonSI. Stay tuned for more fun Linux holiday benchmarks coming up. Compare your own system's performance by installing the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1612090-TA-NEWDRIVER61. As most Phoronix readers already know, thanks to all of the open-source work by AMD over the past year, these results continue to show that the fully open driver stack is suitable for Linux gaming on a vast majority of titles available but there are still exceptions in cases like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
