    Phoronix: The Latest Efforts On Getting The Radeon RX 590 To Work With Linux

    When the Radeon RX 590 launched two weeks ago, Linux support wasn't anticipated to be a problem with it being yet another Polaris graphics card and largely unchanged from a driver perspective compared to the RX 580 and other Polaris cards the past few years. Sadly at least for some AIB RX 590 cards, that hasn't turned out to be the case...

            What went wrong in the management level that made this miscommunication between driver team and AIB partners happen?

            I read Bridgman post saying that the driver team were told that not change was needed, but as we can see that wasn't truth

              Miscommunications can easily happen, especially it its across departments.

              What is odd to me though is how it was able to pass QA tests...

                  Nothing unusual, all these "AMD loves DRM and Mesa" have always been "we don't give a shit about your linux, let someone else do our job".

                    Unfortunately it seems that QA tests on Linux were not done with final hardware. Or that problem should have come up rather quickly.
