NVIDIA 387.12 Vulkan vs. OpenGL Performance Across Multiple CPUs
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 11 October 2017. Page 3 of 5. 26 Comments

Serious Sam 3 BFE with low quality settings sees a huge boost in performance with Vulkan instead of OpenGL. The Core i3 8100 saw a 65% increase in frame-rate using the 387.12 beta driver with Vulkan.

But if pushing Serious Sam 3 BFE hard with the ultra image quality settings, the gains are much less. Here the Vulkan performance benefit was only about 15% or less.

Mad Max was seeing ~15% boosts in performance when using the Vulkan renderer with the new 387.12 driver on the GTX 1060.
