Vulkan Continues To Show Its Gaming Strength On Low-End Hardware

Mad Max at 1080p with low quality settings saw the NVIDIA Vulkan performance with the GTX 1050 to be significantly better than the OpenGL performance. In some cases, quite significant. With the RX 560 performance on RADV, the performance still generally trailed the RadeonSI OpenGL performance but not by much. In the stronghold scene, the RX 560 found better performance with Vulkan.

The CPU usage was dramatically lower on both systems when using Vulkan rather than OpenGL. In fact, the peak CPU usage when using Vulkan on both graphics cards / drivers was just a little bit higher than the average CPU usage when using the OpenGL renderer. Quite a dramatic difference especially on a low-end quad-core Ryzen processor.
