Unigine Heaven with Direct3D 11 shows the much stronger performance there over OpenGL on Windows. But with all tested cards at least the OpenGL Windows vs. Linux performance was similar on both NVIDIA and AMD.

The RX 580 and GTX 1060 are the closest competitors of the graphics cards tested in this article. The RX 580 under Linux for Dota 2 with OpenGL was running at 95% the speed of Windows 10 while the GTX 1060 was running at 88% on Linux as of Windows 10. But the GTX 1060 overall was delivering better performance than the RX 580. The GTX 1080 Ti and RX Vega 64 on Linux both saw around 88% the speed of Windows.

Dota 2 with Vulkan saw the same performance on Windows and Linux with the RX 580 and GTX 1060 (with the GTX 1060 also being the faster of those two cards) while on the higher-end GPUs is where Windows was running faster for these games.

The OpenArena results for anyone interested, which here Linux is faster on all five tested graphics cards.
