First up was the very basic OpenArena test where we saw the closed-source AMD Linux driver still outperforming all combinations of the open-source driver tests.

With the Tesseract open-source game, the best performance out of the open-source stack (Linux 4.5 + Mesa 11.2 + DRI3) put it at 85% the speed of Catalyst.

With Xonotic and low image quality settings, we don't see much change in performance out of the recent open-source driver advancements. At low image quality settings and running at 1080p, the open-source driver stack was at 88% the speed of Catalyst.

With high image quality settings, Xonotic fell to 69% the speed of Catalyst when using the open-source driver.
