    Phoronix: AMDGPU Driver Said To Be Much Faster With Linux 4.5-rc2 Kernel

    With Linux 4.5-rc2 that was released last night, the new AMDGPU DRM driver is supposedly much faster compared to last week's 4.5-rc1 kernel...

    Ugh, If only mesa OpenGL implementation can catch up...

      It's not faster, you'll just get the same speed as everyone else. ;-)

      Did you see my suggestions?
      1) Do you have the latest firmware? It is in http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/linux-firmware, http://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/ is deprecated and old now.
      2) It has a dual BIOS slots in hardware. Try flipping the switch and boot up with the other BIOS.

      Saw that Alex suggested this also:

        Not sure I understand. The changes mentioned here are in power management, which would make clocks go faster and so Mesa would automatically get faster as well.

        Obviously this would only happen if the current performance problems are related to clocks, which we're not sure of yet.

          I guess he is referring to missing OpenGL extensions to reach latest version support.

            Well it's catching up it only takes some time.
            Give it a year and see where we are then.
