Total War: WARHAMMER on Windows remained much faster than Linux with its D3D11-to-OpenGL port. At least with the newest RadeonSI and AMDGPU code the gap is narrowing.

Lastly are the ultra quality results with WARHAMMER that still show Windows leading.

That's the latest of our Windows vs. Linux Radeon driver benchmarking that was limited by needing to run a number of the tests manually and time. See this testing from June for a larger comparison while still being on recent Linux/Windows drivers. For historical comparison are also my many other past Windows comparison benchmarks.
