    Great news! Thanks Marek, you are a great developer!

    On a sidenote, anyone knows the situation of VAAPI 2 for amd? I can't seem to find any news about it. Does it work now?

      I wonder if this will make running Divinity on radeonsi easier...

        It does work now, at least with recent mesa + mpv.

          I still can't figure out what's the problem with my r9 390x performing so badly in the last months I tried everything but switching from DP to DVI or HDMI. Anyone know if it could help?

              Do you have any measured performance numbers? Has it always performed bad, or when did it start performing badly? Was it as a part of a kernel upgrade, mesa upgrade, or something else that happened?

                Latest firmware? https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux...-firmware.git/

                  I wonder if they are going completely with an open driver or if they need to keep some of the driver secret. This seems like a move to minimize the difference between drivers but will it lead to complete removal of closed source.

                    I'm not sure, last time I played on linux was in christmas 2017 then I quit games for a while and since april when I had more time and I got a huge performance loss in games.
                    -Alien isolation 1080p ultra from 90+ to 40+ FPS, same with Shadow of Mordor and Tomb Raider. DE:MD from 70 to 20-30. It seems CSGO and superposition benchmark are not affected by the problem.
                    Last firmwares installed, drivers and mesa from mesa-git, I even tried disabling spectre and meltdown protection.

                    This is with and i7 [email protected], 16GB 2400MHz (very low timings), and an r9 390x strix oc. CPU and GPU liquid cooled, Windows gaming is fine.
