RadeonSI OpenGL vs. RADV Vulkan Performance For Mad Max

The Mad Max benchmark is split into four difference scenes. With the first scene, Camp Hollow Point, the OpenGL vs. Vulkan performance was close to the same... But keep in mind this is testing with RADV. RADV is proven to be less performant compared to the mature RadeonSI OpenGL driver in tests like Serious Sam 2017 and Dota 2, so seeing close to the same in this scene is actually impressive.

But with the stronghold scene is where Vulkan really comes to light. The RADV Vulkan results are much faster than the RadeonSI OpenGL results on both the RX 480 and R9 Fury.

With the next scene, OpenGL was faster with RadeonSI than RADV.

Similarly, with the landmover cut scene too.
