When Phoronix does a performance round up they do not mess around. Their latest look at the performance of AMD cards on Linux stretches all the way back to the HD 2900XT and encompasses almost every single GPU released between that part and the RX 580, with a pair of Firepro cards and the Fury included as well. For comparative performance numbers you will see 28 NVIDIA cards on these charts, which makes the charts some of the longest you have seen. Drop by to check out the state of AMD performance on Linux in a variety of games as well as synthetic benchmarks.
"It's that time of the year where we see how the open-source AMD Linux graphics driver stack is working on past and present hardware in a large GPU comparison with various OpenGL games and workloads. This year we go from the new Radeon RX 580 all the way back to the Radeon HD 2900XT, looking at how the mature Radeon DRM kernel driver and R600 Gallium3D driver is working for aging ATI/AMD graphics hardware. In total there were 51 graphics cards tested for this comparison of Radeon cards as well as NVIDIA GeForce hardware for reference."
