OpenGL then Vulkan CPU utilization:

Not only was the Vulkan performance generally faster than OpenGL for NVIDIA and generally with RADV too, but the CPU usage was lower when using the Vulkan renderer, similar to our other OpenGL vs. Vulkan Linux game tests. The average CPU usage tended to be similar, but the peak CPU usage was most often lower with Vulkan.

Overall, Serious Sam 3: BFE with Vulkan appears to be yet another quality game update from the folks at Croteam. If you enjoy all our Linux hardware benchmarks, show your support by going premium (
