Radeon RX Vega 64: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.3-dev
Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 16 October 2017. Page 4 of 4. 36 Comments

Mesa 17.3-dev is now delivering better performance with AMDGPU+RadeonSI over AMDGPU-PRO.

Xonotic is also faster with the fully open driver.

The Furmark results are close.

While GpuTest's triangle test does significantly better with RadeonSI.

Overall, the RadeonSI/RADV performance was excellent compared to AMDGPU-PRO on the Radeon RX Vega 64. It came as quite a surprise how well the RADV Vulkan performance is doing overall for these latest-generation AMD graphics hardware and then on the OpenGL side with RadeonSI it's only getting faster and faster than AMD's binary-only OpenGL driver.
