More Benchmarks Showing How Gallium3D With RX Vega Smacks AMDGPU-PRO's OpenGL Proprietary Driver

BioShock Infinite is the test case that does very well on Mesa where even the RX Vega 64 can beat out the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Thanks to the OpenGL shader cache, Mesa glthread, and other optimizations, the RX Vega 64 clocks in at 33% faster than the AMDGPU-PRO OpenGL driver, which is also the OpenGL code shared with Windows.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is one of the heavier Linux games at the moment. While it would still be nice seeing greater Deus Ex performance out of RadeonSI Gallium3D, it's already beating the AMDGPU-PRO 17.30 driver by a wide margin.

Civilization VI is rather CPU bound with the Linux port and not the best performer, but it's impressive to see how much better the RadeonSI driver performs than the existing AMDGPU-PRO OpenGL code-base.
