AMD Radeon With Linux 6.1 + Mesa 23.0-dev vs. NVIDIA R525 Gaming Performance

With the Linux 6.1 kernel on account of be launched within the subsequent week, Mesa 23.0-devel persevering with to see numerous enhancements land for RADV and RadeonSI, and the NVIDIA R525 Linux driver sequence being accessible, here’s a recent have a look at the AMD Radeon vs. NVIDIA GeForce Linux gaming efficiency with varied graphics playing cards and an assortment of Linux video games — each native and by way of Valve’s Steam Play.

This spherical of Radeon graphics card testing was utilizing Linux 6.1 Git paired with Mesa 23.0-devel from the Oibaf PPA, as of the 23 November state when testing initiated.

Testing was with the {hardware} I had accessible with sadly by no means having obtained any RX 6900 sequence overview samples from AMD.
Over on the NVIDIA driver aspect the NVIDIA 525.53 driver was used as the most recent as of testing time whereas utilizing the Linux 6.0 kernel there for compatibility with the proprietary driver stack. Tested there have been the RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, and RTX 3080. Unfortunately NVIDIA has but to provide any RTX 40 sequence graphics playing cards for Linux testing at Phoronix so I can not remark in any respect on the Linux assist there.
Plus for enjoyable can also be the Intel Arc Graphics A770 within the video games capable of deal with that graphics card and operating there was the Linux 6.2 DRM-Next state the place DG2/Alchemist is deemed secure and Mesa 23.0-devel utilizing the identical construct as for the Radeon testing.

From there a recent spherical of Linux gaming benchmarks have been run on this AMD Ryzen 9 7950X system with Ubuntu 22.10.
