    Phoronix: 16-Way Graphics Card Comparison With Radeon On ROCm, NVIDIA With Initial 2018 Linux Drivers

    Towards the end of December AMD quietly released ROCm 1.7.60 as the newest version of their Radeon Open Compute stack complete with their maturing OpenCL implementation. With the improvements there plus NVIDIA recently introducing their 390 Linux driver series (390.12 Beta currently), I ran some fresh Linux OpenCL GPU compute benchmarks on a variety of AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards for those curious how the current performance stacks up.

    Got ROCm running nicely on Ubuntu 17.10 together with the mesa drivers for my R9 Fury a few days ago. Wasn't sure it would work on a non LTS release but it actually did this time (it didn't when I tried it on 17.04 about six months back). Just had to disable the Ubuntu dock since it caused some issues together with the ROCm kernel module, but apart from that it's all good. Running ethminer at 28Mh/s for a few days now and it's stable. I guess that's also pretty good performance although I don't have much mining experience.

    Edit: Oh! I just noticed the kernel module had added support for HDMI/DP audio output despite running on a stock Ubuntu 4.13 kernel. Nice bonus, so thanks AMD developers

        Nice to see FAHbench starting to be used in benchmarks... would be nice if it was tested with the processors too, but I'm certainly not complaining :3

          I am also liking the FAHbench results. Thanks

            Two things:
            1) I love the FAH benchmark
            2) Such a pity that ROCM doesn't work with darktable and [email protected]

              Hopefully AMD can upstream everything needed in 2018.

                Debian unstable got a new xserver-xorg-video-intel after more than a year. Wonder if they gonna switch back to the intel driver from modesetting.

                  Wow, pretty cool. I guess as soon as everything is upstreamed, it will be easy to iron out remaining bugs. Can't wait to see more Raven Ridge ultabooks appear on the market, with perfect out of the box linux support! Especially when doing photo work on laptops, OpenCL should be a great win.

                    Does Blender work with ROCm?
