Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on Windows has both D3D11 and D3D12 renderer options, but the DirectX 12 support doesn't appear to really be faster yet than their default renderer. Mesa/RadeonSI has seen a number of improvements in recent months, as can be seen from the Mesa 17.2-dev results bieng faster than Mesa 17.0 as found out-of-the-box on Ubuntu 17.04. But even with the bleeding-edge Radeon Linux driver on the RX 580 and R9 Fury, the performance remains much faster on Windows. In this 1080p high quality scenario the performance difference would be noticeable with the Linux average being less than 60 FPS on the R9 Fury.

A low-quality 4K run of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided shows Windows 10 still running noticeably faster than Ubuntu 17.04 and the newest driver code.
