Strange Brigade was running faster on Ubuntu 19.10 / Linux 5.4 + Mesa 19.3 though earlier Mesa builds did have some issues with this game on Steam Play.

The Tesseract OpenGL performance was slightly lower on the updated AMD Radeon Linux graphics stack.

Total War: Three Kingdoms saw slightly higher performance out of thew Radeon VII on the newer driver stack.

Unigine Superposition performance was flat.

Xonotic was another one of the titles where the newer open-source Radeon driver code provided a slight uplift for the Radeon VII.

Overall there were no dramatic driver improvements to find for Polaris/Vega in going from Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10 but some modest enhancements and other minor improvements as well as new OpenGL/Vulkan extensions. With Linux 5.4 + Mesa 19.3 there were some minor improvements as well particularly for games that regressed from 19.04 to 19.10. The exception was the Radeon VII graphics card seeing a few performance improvements still in switching to that very latest graphics driver code.
