The open-source DDraceNetwork cooperative platformer game was seeing some nice improvements thanks to the Zink sub-allocator code. Zink though already ran with ease for this not demanding game that easily runs on all modern GPUs. The RadeonSI driver was still maintaining a performance lead over the latest Zink code.

The Linux port of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is one of the most demanding OpenGL native Linux games available. Unfortunately, it's still a mess with Zink but Mike Blumenkrantz is making progress. Besides the low performance, there was also scenarios of incorrect rendering and crashes.

The Linux port of DiRT Showdown was now able to run with Zink following the compatibility context support landing. The Zink performance is quite good and easily playable while not as high as the RadeonSI performance on this RDNA2-enabled computer.

Dota 2 is running faster with the sub-allocator code merged but not yet to the speeds of the RadeonSI native driver.
