Zink OpenGL-On-Vulkan vs. RadeonSI OpenGL Performance As Of January 2021
Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 22 January 2021. Page 5 of 5. 29 Comments

Unigine Heaven could surprisingly run at just under half the frame-rate of the RadeonSI driver. With the Radeon RX 5700 XT that meant close to 60 FPS, but Heaven has been one of the test cases used by Zink developers that they have been profiling and optimizing for in their development.

The older Unigine Sanctuary and Tropics demos were well under half the speed of RadeonSI.

Or with the Unigine Vally test case was at just under a third of the RadeonSI performance.

That's where things stand at the moment in the Zink vs. RadeonSI testing with a Radeon RX 5700 XT. Assuming the rate of mainlining more improvements keep up, closer to the Mesa 21.1 stable release will be more benchmarks for eagerly seeing how the performance has advanced.
