    This decision was not arbitrary, customers were buying much cheaper GeForce cards in servers instead of Quadro cards and Nvidia was loosing big money. Linux users were hit as a side effect.

      And this is why AMD needs to attract developers to Radeon. And SR-IOV support would make a card more interesting for development, as you can run stuff concurrently in VMs (e.g. compare emulator with VM behavior in real time).

        I'm impressed, really, this is the only GPU that I've actually wanted to buy since the 980-Ti, and I couldn't afford the 980-Ti until it got a 50% price cut when the 1000 series finally came from nvidia; which made it a better deal than anything AMD was offering at the time. But this... A card that not only serves all my performance needs with a 4k screen, but also my Linux needs? Gonna be hard for me to avoid buying this.

          Over at Level1Techs, someone posted their
          Code:
          # lspci -vvv
          output.
          Unfortunately the PCI descriptor did not contain
          Code:
          Capabilities [...] Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)
          So it looks like, at least with the current firmware, no SR-IOV.

            Wow this is the card I have been waiting for for my 4k gaming. I was after a 1080 Ti, but the prices kept going up as they sold out. I couldn't quite stomach the price of the newer NVIDIA cards, now AMD pull this out and it runs on open source drivers! Sold and Pre-ordered...

              Not sure if you're in a similar situation I was in. I was running an early R7 1700 (w/ performance marginality bug) and an RX580. Was getting lockups at idle fairly frequently (every few days when I was gone at work). Then I upgraded the R7 1700 to a 2700 last year, and the lockups went away. Not sure what the interplay there was, and I just stuck the 1700 in a box for a rainy day project (or RMA).

              My system currently says it has an uptime of 22 days, and I'm pretty sure that was a manual reboot for kernel upgrade (or because I cut the wrong breaker when replacing an outlet).

                Any news about Radeon VII MxGPU/SR-IOV support?

                  No... you should still assume no SR-IOV support unless we announce something different.

                    Just got one of those VII cards in my possession but i cant figure any way to get openCL support on linux. I either get a blackscreen or "no CL device detectected", no matter what driver or kernel constellation i try on 18.04.03 or other distros.
