    So radv is equal if not a bit better than amdvlk...
    why are they still making 2 drivers and dividing their work?

            AMD makes amdvlk, radv made by community

              Community? If I'm not mistaken most RADV developers are employed or paid by AMD.

                No, most of them are employed by Valve, including those who work on the ACO shader compiler.

                  In other words it's not "community" in any shape or form which means the whole idea of community driven GPU development is more likely a myth.

                    Well, it's their Texas and Southern heritage making them Jim Crowe holdouts. This is the Separate but Equal driver. There's even an exclusive version of their driver that caters to their "professional" users.
