The Civilization VI Linux testing shows that the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver needs more optimizations for better handling this newer Linux game port. But even still, the flat-lined NVIDIA results show that there may be some heavy CPU bottleneck happening with this game port by Aspyr Media.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at 4K where GPU scaling could happen showed the Radeon RX 480 just running short of the GeForce GTX 1060 and the Radeon R9 Fury running between the GTX 980 and GTX 1070, roughly what should be expected for this Radeon hardware.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided with Mesa 17+ is doing much better with RadeonSI than on older Mesa builds.
