    Better late never. After getting HIP working with ROCm-GFX8P repository from COPR, the benchmark is finally available​ running Sapphire Nitro+ Pure AMD Radeon RX 6950XT.

    I'm curious as to why the RX 6500 and RX 6400 were tested? My understanding was that all of the media creation parts of those two gpus are disabled.

    there are multiple reasons why GIMP did not become important similar to blender.

    there are many other opensource projects who did not go airborne yet ... Inkscape is another example.

    i think we will soon see that in the next 5 years that many of these projects go the same route as blender.

    Krita for example did get intel as sponsor because krita goes the same route as blender...

    GIMP should be the same but is not yet important... but i think in the near future GIMP becomes a complete Adobe Photoshop replacement and because of this becomes important in the future.

    as soon as such a software like blender becomes a battleground its like game over for the closed source ecosystem.

    I just got Sapphire Nitro+ Pure Radeon RX 6950X for Ryzen 9 5900XT running on Fedora 37 Beta. Unfortunately, the HIP failed to get detected for some odd reasons but ROCM OpenCL got significant improvement, shame OpenCL support got dropped. I may try the benchmark this weekend.

    Maybe AMD could provide Michael a f*ck*ng card for free? AMD WTF? You're losing way more money every time he publishes a review with top of the line Nvidia GPUs and no AMD counterpart. Computing aside AMD blows Nvidia away in rasterization on Linux and yet you decide to not provide the highest end cards. I'll never understand.

    That's a good idea, I think.

    Did you consider crowdfunding for testing specific versions of GPUs, Michael?
