Radeon's Open-Source Linux GPU Driver Has Nearly Caught Up With Windows' Driver
Over the past few months we have seen some incredible progress made to the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver as well as AMDGPU (and the RADV Vulkan driver, though not the focus of today's article) as well as the Mesa 3D stack as a whole. The open-source Radeon Linux driver is much faster now than where it was last year and is becoming competitive with NVIDIA's Linux driver performance. For seeing how close the AMDGPU+RadeonSI stack is now to Windows, here are some fresh benchmarks.

AMD Radeon RX 480 review: the best $200 GPU you can buy today
Last week, AMD launched its largest midrange hardware update in years, codenamed Polaris. Polaris isn't a brand-new architecture – that's Vega, which arrives late this year – but it's arguably a larger update than anything we've seen from AMD since the original GCN debuted in late 2011. GCN 1.1 (Bonaire, Hawaii) and 1.2 (Tonga, Fiji) both improved on the original microarchitecture and integrated additional heterogeneous compute capabilities, but both were fairly modest improvements in the grand scheme of things.
