AMD RadeonSI Gallium3D Performance For 4K Linux Gaming

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Gaming

While we routinely carry out Ultra HD (4K) Linux graphics/gaming benchmarks at Phoronix, it's generally been conducted with the proprietary NVIDIA and AMD graphics drivers since the open-source drivers traditionally have had a challenge on performance even at 1080p. However, thanks to the maturing open-source Radeon driver stack, it's possible with higher-end AMD graphics processors with the latest open-source Linux driver code to begin running at the 4K UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160.

You might be surprised to learn that outside of work, bringing up three children and a dog and writing about Linux that I try to find time for other hobbies such as being a navigator at classic car rallies and playing old computer games.

The latest Linux distribution to come about that's aspiring for adoption by Linux gamers is "Play Linux", a distribution based on Ubuntu LTS that's "specially designed for gamers" and more. Gil Nóbrega, the project's co-founder and main builder, wrote into Phoronix saying, "It is not only a gaming distro but it is an All-In-One distro for Gamers, because gamers are not only gamers, right? They have to work or study too."

The August numbers for Valve's Steam Hardware/Software Survey indicate a possible drop in Steam Linux usage as the overall percentage of Linux gamers using this digital distribution platform hovers just around 1.0%.
