Planning to get an AMD GPU - Is my system ready for it?
Avehicle7887 commented on 19 March 2020 at 10:53 pm UTC

Avehicle7887If you wish I can still try to provide a Basemark/Unigine benchmark. The tests would be based on Mesa 20.0.1 + Kernel 5.5.10

yes please I would like to see the results of a UNigine Superposition Benchmark at 1080p extreme preset.

For some reason I can't get Superposition to run (complains about xcb error in terminal), ironically though the older Heaven benchmark works just fine.

Here's what I got (Ignore the GPU Section, the program doesn't detect it properly but the numbers seem to be correct compared against my RTX 2060S):


PS: Working on that Basemark bench.

I moved the GPU to my old gaming rig which runs an i5-4590, since this is slightly faster than the G4560 it was being tested on. I've also decided to run some 3840x1080 tests which you'll find below.

Personal Thoughts (Mini Review):

So after almost 2 weeks with this card, I can say I'm very happy for the price I paid (more on this later). The performance is more or less equal to the older AMD RX 580 and Nvidia GTX 1060, which is what I expected from the start. As far as stability goes, I haven't had any issues (Latest Linux firmware, libdrm 2.4.100, Kernel 5.5.x, Mesa 20.0.x, LLVM 9/10, ACO enabled).

To put this card's performance in perspective with modern competition, it sits right behind the slightly more expensive Nvidia GTX 1660 Super model. Going back to the price, I paid 240 euro to import this from the U.S (Amazon), as it's not available locally - Malta.

If you're looking for a solid 1080p card with Open Source support this is a fine choice, furthermore if you find an RX 580 for a cheaper price and don't care about power consumption, that's an even better choice as performance is roughly the same between the two.

Ok off to the screenshots:

Witcher 3

Shadow Warrior 2

Wolfenstein - The New Order (OpenGL)
