Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 23 August 2018. Page 4 of 4. 13 Comments

In the Vulkan-based Thrones of Britannia, the performance was very close in the four tested configurations. The PRO driver lost with the RX 580 but did deliver better frame-rates with the RX Vega 64.

At 1080p with ultra quality settings, the driver performance remained close.

4K with low quality settings is still playable on the RX Vega 64.

X-Plane 11 was running the fastest with the Mesa 18.3 + Linux 4.18 configuration.

The Unigine Superposition performance was very close between the drivers tested.

Lastly with Unigine Heaven, the PRO OpenGL driver still maintained a lead over the RadeonSI options with the demanding Unigine Heaven benchmark.
