    Phoronix: AMDGPU-PRO BETA 2 Driver Is Playing Nicely On Ubuntu 16.04 With The R9 Fury

    Released on Saturday was the new AMDGPU-PRO Linux beta driver release for the AMD GCN 1.2 graphics cards. Given the time that's passed since the first beta of this "hybrid" open/closed driver stack, I've been running some fresh benchmarks...

    Please try to run any Feral game (Alien Isolation, Shadow of Mordor, Tomb Raider) with amdgpu-pro. Do they work?

      Unfortunately none of those games have a working, automated benchmark mode.

        There is a software bug in all Feral games preventing them from running with amdgpu-pro, at least on my machine. No need to benchmark the games, just try starting them on Ubuntu 16.04 + amdgpu-pro.

          Why do you say that?

          It works just fine on my R9 290 which is GCN 1.1

            Reddit says it's working now.

              Michael: can you run es2info or anything using OpenGL ES?

                Can confirm that Alien Isolation works perfectly.

                    Can confirm all feral games launch and run as expected now!!!

                    cant wait to play tomb raider on my r9 380x, I had it running smoothly at medium settings last night but need further testing to confirm(was only in a cave)

                    A:I seems to be running A LOT better now.
