AMDVLK vs. RADV vs. AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 Vulkan Performance

Dota 2 at 4K with the AMDVLK / AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 driver was slightly faster than RADV on the RX 580 and significantly faster with those official AMD Vulkan drivers when using the RX Vega 64. The RX Vega series in particular are still being tuned for RADV but at least the visual rendering issues and other problems are now all squared away as far as I know with current Vulkan Linux games. But these results against NVIDIA do show that AMDVLK/AMDGPU-PRO has room to improve its performance with the RX Vega 64 performing just in line with the GeForce GTX 1060.

Dawn of War III is a game that has problems with the official AMD Vulkan drivers, but RADV does manage to run fine. AMDVLK did work with Dawn of War III when using AMDVLK on the Polaris RX 580 but not the Vega GPU. The RX 580 on RADV and AMDVLK were running about the same speed, but it's still short of where the GTX 1060 was running.

When running F1 2017 at 1080p with high quality settings, RADV was faster than AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 and AMDVLK on the RX 580. AMDVLK with the RX Vega 64 was crashing with F1 2017.
