AMD Radeon GPUs Soar with RADV Vulkan

Under Linux, MESA “RADV” Vulkan drivers significantly increase the ray tracing speed of AMD Radeon GPUs

It seems that MESA has finally produced answers for the “mature” driver and software resource shortages

With the newest AMD Radeon GPUs, the new Radeon Vulkan driver has been tuned to provide notable performance gains.

Using a Radeon RX 6700 XT, Adriano Martins evaluated the modification and discovered 10~75% improved performance for a variety of ray-traced games

The conversion of 1D ray launches to 2D has been adjusted to utilize more threads on a GPU and hence enhance speed

Using a Radeon RX 7900 XT, Adam Niederer examined this modification further and discovered gains of up to 140–200% in titles like Chrous

Significant performance improvements were also shown by the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT, with values rising as high as 200%
