When running GRID Autosport on Windows vs. Linux with low quality settings, the Linux performance was better for this racing game brought to Linux by Feral Interactive. Mesa 17.2-dev didn't boost the average frame-rate much, but it did help in noticeably driving up the minimum frame-rate.

While GRID Autosport with low quality settings was looking great on Linux, with ultra image quality settings at 4K the Radeon R9 Fury was much slower on Linux... At least there's much headway made by Linux 4.12 / Mesa 17.2-dev, but still not near the Windows 10 Pro performance.

Shadow of Mordor with low quality settings was 32% faster on Windows over Ubuntu 17.04 Linux.

With ultra image quality settings, Mesa 17.2-dev did a bit better than Mesa 17.0, but Windows remained much faster for this game. Here Windows' advantage was down to 18% over the latest Radeon Linux driver.
