    I was really hoping the 'blank' in the title was going to be "open-source Vulkan" driver

      Amd should make it compatible with Mesa driver.

      GUI for some tasks is needed , even if it is only limited to some temperature monitoring or fan adjustments.

      I'm an Nvidia user with prop driver but i am rooting for an AMD card at my next system change.

        It is the amd open source driver that cause adrenaline to rise, beginners have no clue how to use rolling release distribution and drivers. My adrenaline rises posting same instructions 1000 times. Amd, document these facts finally.

          could not care less about some commercial marketing naming, only thing I care is plenty fast, stable and open source driver stack ;-)

            Would like to have OpenGL 4.6 support in the new driver.

                RadeonSI has always be the way to go on linux for AMD.

                  There are already oss projects that do that. The best by far is radeon profile. Allows both monitoring a overclocking an AMD cards.

                  Have to admit though, would like the full control that you get from the prop drivers

                    I'll pass it along. No promises though, and Legal would probably require abbreviation to BFG.
