    Phoronix: AMDGPU-PRO 16.50 Rolls Out With GCN 1.0 Support, FreeSync

    The embargo has just expired on the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition release, which had leaked out a few days ago elsewhere. While Crimson ReLive Edition is a big update for AMD Windows users, on the Linux side there's less to talk about but it's still a rather big release. I've been testing the AMDGPU-PRO 16.50 release the past two weeks and overall it's a sizable update for those using this hybrid AMD Linux driver.

    I'm still baffled that the PPA at https://launchpad.net/~graphics-driv...ive/ubuntu/ppa for Ubuntu doesn't offer any of these AMD updates. It would be nice to have amdgpu-pro and not have everything be so Nvidia centric. I guess I will have to stick with Nvidia on Linux and see how the next generation of cards fare once devs support DirectX 12/Vulkan more.

      Michael could you try running with the latest code from the drm-next-4.10-wip branch to see if the GCN 1.0 issues are kernel or userspace bugs

            No it hasn't. It's not actually live yet.

              At first I was excited to try but after I read page 1 and saw the benchmarks, I will not give it a try...

                Intel is allowed to use FreeSync but I don't think they ever bothered to support it (even on Windows). I could be wrong.

                FreeSync, to my understanding, isn't limited by the OS but rather the GPU and it's drivers.

                  bridgman does 16.50 support DAL/DL on Kaveri perhaps?

                    They announced that they'll support Adaptive Sync (name of the VESA standard; FreeSync is just AMD's marketing name), but their hardware can't handle it yet.


                    @Michael: any info on when it is publicly released? Do you have a freesync monitor?
