RADV vs. AMDGPU-PRO vs. AMDVLK Vulkan Linux Driver Performance
Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 8 May 2018. Page 9 of 9. 21 Comments

Serious Sam 3 BFE with 1080p low quality settings to be CPU bound saw the RADV and PRO driver performance being close while AMDVLK was the slowest.

But hitting the GPUs with ultra quality settings, the PRO Vulkan driver was found to be much faster followed by RADV and then AMDVLK.

This game at 4K with low quality settings heavily favored the PRO driver.

While under high quality 4K settings, the RADV driver returned to being competitive with PRO.

The PRO Vulkan driver was also faster with The Talos Principle at 4K.
