    Phoronix: AMDGPU-PRO 17.10-429170 vs. Linux 4.12 + Mesa 17.2-dev: Open-Source Continues Strong

    Last week AMD released an updated AMDGPU-PRO hybrid driver with performance fixes so I've now carried out a fresh comparison of this updated 17.10-429170 driver compared to the latest open-source stack of Mesa 17.2-dev Git plus the Linux 4.12 development kernel.

    With this new driver claiming performance fixes, I was curious to see how it runs up against the older 17.10 driver releases. Unfortunately, I didn't have any of those older binaries archived and AMD seems to have dropped their archived drivers from the site.
    Fortunately, these guys seems archive any AMD driver releases, including these 10 (if i counted right) AMDGPU-PROs for Ubuntu

      Great results of the open source driver.

        that certainly is a good set of results for the open driver!

          With Xonotic, the RX 580 was faster on AMDGPU-PRO while the R9 Fury was faster with the open driver stack.
          Should be the other way around, from the graphs

          Thank you for the comparison; it looks like RADV is catching up!

            Gah, now we need to get open-source OpenCL sorted and we're good to go...

              Man, in most of the tests Radeonsi kicked AMDGPU-PRO in the teeth, while it was down. Bravo AMD opensource team, bravo.

                Sure, so why people will use the proprietary driver?

                I'm not sure what is the best deal for a rolling distro: NVIDIA card + proprietary driver or AMD card + Mesa?

                  Considering most of the code is directly from AMD it's not surprising.

                    Does the new Warhammer game not run on AMDGPU-PRO? I think you said you'd try if it runs.
