AMD Vega 8 Graphics Performance On Linux With The Ryzen 3 2200G
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 14 February 2018. Page 5 of 5. 40 Comments

Tomb Raider is a game where it would simply crash with the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver on the Raven Ridge APUs.

The Ryzen 3 2200G was running fairly well with Mad Max on Vulkan but like the 2400G would still have a tough time delivering consistently playable frame-rates at 1080p with low quality settings.

Next on the Raven Ridge graphics side will be comparing these results to some low-end discrete GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA, including a more diverse selection of Linux gaming tests now that the Intel graphics will be omitted from that comparison.

If you want to see how your own Linux system(s) compare to these Vega APU graphics in this article, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1802142-FO-RAVENVEGA52.

The Vega 8 graphics on the Ryzen 3 2200G are great for being a $99 APU, but it's noticeably weaker on the CPU side. Also keep in mind that if you plan on upgrading to Raven Ridge soon, you will need to be running a very bleeding-edge Linux graphics stack for support and even still there are a few initial pains in the display / game support as noted in this article. But as the Raven Ridge Linux support continues to mature, there will certainly be more benchmarks on Phoronix.
