Some Linux Game Developers Don't Even Have Contacts At AMD

It's sad right now that we're going through a time where many new Linux game releases only work with NVIDIA graphics and flat out fail with AMD's Catalyst driver. While AMD is known to deliver game fixes several months late, making matters worse, it seems some game developers don't even know who to contact at AMD about Linux driver issues.

AMD Appears To Be Spinning Another Oland-Based GPU

AMD's Rx 300 series line-up is largely a re-brand (with greater vRAM) of older GCN graphics cards, except for the high-end Fiji GPUs. While there's already some low-end parts in the R5/R7 300 series, it seems another one may be coming.

I'm in the midst of a new large open-source and (separately) closed-source NVIDIA/AMD Linux graphics card comparison on the latest drivers as part of an upcoming Radeon R7 370 Linux review and to be followed by R9 Fury Linux benchmarks.

A Look At CS:GO & TF2 On AMD GPUs With The Open-Source Driver

I'm in the process of running open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D tests on the new MSI Radeon R7 370 4G graphics card. That initial Linux review of the AMD Radeon R7 370 with the open-source driver will be published later this week (still waiting on an updated Catalyst driver for those proprietary driver tests). However, as an excerpt of the Gallium3D testing, here are results from some AMD graphics cards with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2.
