    FreeSync is still broken on these new 17.10 drivers. Frustrating. Reverting back to 16.60 drivers. Any idea when open-source drivers will be getting FreeSync?

      the open source drivers already do have FreeSync support over DAL/DC code but right now DAL/DC is not in the mainline linux kernel. means you have to build custom linux kernel oder you need to use the DC kernel build.

      in my point of view the closed source driver is pure fraud the last 10 years they betray the people with that piece of shit. It was never a solution and will never be a solution.

        I blocked you once and I'll block you again! Also, the closed driver has always sucked yes... but saying AMD has betrayed anyone is nonsense, they are at the forefront of open graphics drivers.

          i think the message was clear that the closed source driver is fraud and the opensource driver is NOT fraud.

            Fraud denotes criminal activity. Got proof?

              phoronix If you can; please test what happens if you try the RX580 with the AMDGPU driver. Does it fail gracefully?

                  While it's great that AMD updated their driver to possibly support their new cards, it would be even greater if they got it to work on the $330 R9-390 that I now regret buying last year. I'm seriously considering just giving up on it and chalking it up as a $330 lesson learned not to buy AMD any longer, and switching back to Nvidia.

                  I've always tried to support the underdog, and considered AMD products a value even if they weren't quite as powerful, but this never ending Linux graphics driver boondoggle has forced me to reconsider. In fact I've given up on ever seeing a graphics driver GUI again, and am now so desperate I'd be eternally grateful just for a driver that worked.

                    Does anyone know if this AMDGPU-PRO driver package works on Ubuntu 17.04? I doubt it because of the much newer kernel version.
