For Linux GPU driver junkies, here are some fresh NVIDIA vs. RadeonSI test results using Linux 4.11 and Mesa 17.1-dev as of this week.

Not much information to share until the embargo expires, but here are some interesting NVIDIA vs. RadeonSI results on Ubuntu Linux.

The Radeon RX 480 and R9 Fury on the AMD side as the newest and exciting AMD GPUs I have available at this time. On the NVIDIA side was the GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, and GTX 1080 Ti.

At low, the RadeonSI results aren't too impressive.

But with high quality 1080p settings, the results are more interesting.

At 4K shows room for improvement on both vendor drivers under Linux.

More details shortly.
