BioShock Infinite at 1080p is CPU bound except for the slowest/older graphics cards, but worth pointing out is that the RadeonSI driver still does seem to have slightly higher overhead than the NVIDIA Linux driver given where each driver is topping out at for the performance.

But at 4K with BioShock Infinite is where the RX 580 is competing with the GTX 1060 while the RX Vega 64 comes in line with the GTX 1070 Ti.

For Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at 2560 x 1440p with high quality settings, the RX Vega 64 comes in just shy of the GeForce GTX 1080 while the RX 580 manages to run a few frames ahead of the GTX 1060.

Dota 2 with OpenGL shows the RadeonSI performance still coming in as weak for this particular game. While the GTX 1060 and RX 580 are running neck-and-neck, the RX Vega 64 comes in slower than a GeForce GTX 1070.

Even with Dota 2 on Vulkan, the RX Vega numbers are still coming in quite low for this game.
