Portal was also much faster on Windows with all of the cards tested, albeit the performance is easily in the hundreds of FPS on the tested GPUs.

Xonotic on all of the cards except for the GTX 1060 was faster on Linux.

Including for the Radeon open-source graphics stack, the performance was much better on Linux than Windows. But for the Java Linux 2D performance, the NVIDIA performance was much better than on the AMD Polaris and Vega graphics cards.

For those wishing to run your own side-by-side performance comparison against these reference results on Windows and Linux, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1809266-RA-WINDOWS2747.
