Batman: Arham Origins was up first as a title run under Linux via Valve's Steam Play and employing DXVK for converting Direct3D calls to Vulkan. The RADV driver on the AMD cards appears to still be hitting a bottleneck with not much scaling out of those Polaris cards and under-performing compared to the NVIDIA competition. With this Batman game, the GTX 1660 SUPER performance reached the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1070 performance level, being quite a healthy advancement past the GTX 1660.

With Dota 2, which is of course native to Linux, the GTX 1660 SUPER performance nearly matched the GTX 1660 Ti performance and just ahead of the Radeon RX 590.

On a performance-per-Watt basis, the NVIDIA Turing cards are still ahead of the Radeon RX 570/580/590 Polaris GPUs.

With Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on Linux that makes use of OpenGL, the GTX 1660 SUPER performance matched the GTX 1660 Ti and was measurably faster than the Radeon RX 590 on the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver.
