The Tesseract open-source game performed fairly close between the two AMD Linux drivers. The R9 Fury was still coming up short of the GTX 980.

Unigine Heaven's performance was also about the same speed between the two drivers.

Xonotic remains one of the best examples where the AMD Linux drivers can at least compete heavily with NVIDIA for OpenGL performance.
