As the most popular open source OS system, Linux and our daily life is actually very related to Android phones, servers are inseparable from it. On desktop systems, the biggest drag on Linux’s non-acceptance is the game, but by 2020, the concept will change and Linux game performance is actually better than Windows 10.
Netizen Flightless Mango recently sent a Linux system and Win10 system game performance comparison, he is using Arch Linux, through Wine to run the game under Windows “Wild Dart 2”, the test platform is Core i7-8700K, 16GB DDR4-3200 memory, graphics card has RTX 2080 and RX Vega 56, compared to Linux Vulkan, Win10 DX12 and Win10 Vulkan.
First look at the test results of the RTX 2080 graphics card, dX12 under the lowest frame 65fps, average frame 75fps, Win10 Vulkan is 66fps, 76fps, Linux Vulkan is 61, 70fps.
Simply put, nVIDIA graphics card performance under Linux than Win10 or a little worse, the gap is about 7%, but the game experience is not much.
Looking at AMD’s RX Vega 56 graphics card, there are several driver results under Linux, but the performance impact of different drivers is not significant.
AMD now Linux and Win10 performance is much more interesting, first of all, Vlkan performance than DX12 7%, and the Vukan performance under Linux is still about 6% stronger, the other two drivers are also stronger than Win10 DX12, it can be said that Linux game performance is better than Win10.
In short, Linux play the game can not be changed bias, in fact, the biggest problem is not the system can not, mainly because linux system dispersion, desktop share is too small, game developers will not focus on Linux, coupled with graphics driver problems are also many, which led to Linux game failure results.
