    Can AMD increase performance in OpenGL?


      I use the emulator Cemu and it makes poorly use of my gpu. A R9 290

      Everywhere i reed people with cards from nvidia are getting more fps.

      It's not a question about what cards people use or how fast they really are in lets say games for DX11 or DX12.

      It's about how the cards use OpenGL.


      I have also read that cards from AMD are doing just fine in Linux.

      Something about the driver in Linux is multi-threaded. (Correct me if i'm wrong here)


      And this is where you say: But Cemu is mostly a cpu hungry emulator.

      Yes, that is true. But a faster card from AMD can still be slower then a slower nvidia on the same cpu.


      So can AMD do something here or are OpenGL a lost fight?

          Seconding this.


          It's not just Cemu too, but most applications (open and closed source) that use an OpenGL renderer. I am seriously considering switching back to Nvidia for my next gaming rig just due to AMD GPUs' abysmal OpenGL performance.


          Nvidia's last generation "first-tier" gaming GPU (the GTX 750 Ti) performs about 50% better running OpenGL than AMD's enthusiast tier GPUs (such as my r9 390). That is unacceptable.
