Dota 2 at 1080p with the OpenGL renderer saw much better performance with the fully-open driver than AMDGPU-PRO 16.60, with the exception of the low-end RX 460. While the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver delivered better performance than the hybrid driver stack, both drivers need improvements to better compete with the NVIDIA binary driver.

With the Vulkan renderer at 1080p, the AMDGPU-PRO 16.60 driver was faster than the current RADV Vulkan driver code.

When running Dota 2 at 4K, the R9 Fury on Mesa was faster than AMDGPU-PRO 16.60, the R9 285 and RX 460 were about the same speed, and the RX 480 was slower on RadeonSI.

AMDGPU-PRO's Vulkan renderer at 4K remained faster than RADV, but still showing more tuning is needed by both drivers to better compete with NVIDIA on Linux.
