Linux 4.5 AMDGPU/Radeon vs. Catalyst OpenGL Performance
Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 27 January 2016. Page 3 of 5. 30 Comments

The Metro Last Light Redux game at 4K on different graphics cards with the latest open-source code was running around half the speed of Catalyst.

Under the basic OpenArena game, the R9 285 continued performing very well as did the R7 370. The R9 290 was certainly playable on the open-source driver code thanks to the powerful Hawaii GPU but at only 66% the speed of Catalyst. With the R9 Fury, the performance was horribly slow. This R9 Fury graphics card has yet to perform well for me when using the open-source driver.
