The Tomb Raider performance was close to the same but appears to be CPU bound in this scenario.

Xonotic with low quality settings saw faster performance across the board with AMDGPU, likely due to its video memory improvements.

But with the higher quality levels for Xonotic, the HD 7950 and R9 290 performance was the same while the R9 270X and R7 370 were back to showing regressed performance under AMDGPU.
