AMDGPU vs. Radeon DRM Driver Performance On Linux 4.15
Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 21 December 2017. Page 5 of 5. 17 Comments

Here's also some Vulkan performance benchmarks with RADV when using the AMDGPU DRM driver.

Worth noting with these results is the RADV Vulkan performance is great on the Radeon R9 290! Unlike with RadeonSI where the performance is back to being regressed, such a strange ongoing issue with select Hawaii cards on Linux. With GCN 1.0/1.1 on RADV Vulkan, F1 2017 and Dawn of War III both bailed out due to Vulkan errors.

More end of the year tests coming up, daily through the end of the year. Show your support by going premium so I can continue delivering solid benchmarks in 2018.
