    Phoronix: Radeon R9 290 Testing Update With Linux 4.10, AMDGPU-PRO 16.50

    With the post Christmas ad rate slowdown I finally found the time to run some fresh tests on my Radeon R9 290 that since around Linux 4.7 has been performing abnormally slow but has been working fine with AMDGPU-PRO. I carried out some tests with Linux 4.10 and also ensured linux-firmware.git was the latest, but still it's somewhat of a mystery...

      Unigine Heaven was hanging with AMDGPU-PRO so I had to skip it there.

        You should try testing with the legacy firmware (BONAIRE_UVD.bin), by deleting bonaire_uvd.bin and updating initramfs. It's possible that the updated bonaire_uvd.bin that you got from git doesn't fully fix the performance regression introduced by the original bonaire_uvd.bin.

          Better disable these units if you think that is kind of problem, there is a kernel parameters to disable uvd, vce, etc... that way those does not exist, firmwares won't even try to be loaded for these, etc... and if issue appear or something interfere only with some of those enabled - bingo

            It may actually be a good idea to switch to a new distro in general. I started on Ubuntu, but Manjaro is what I'm on now, which is the first distro to permanently pull me away from Ubuntu. I would recommend it. With all that Mir stuff, Ubuntu is getting farther from the Linux community anyway.

              There is no Mir stuff in Kubuntu, Ubuntu Gnome, etc.

                Michael, perhaps you should test it on your Fedora system as well? Since you already have it running, it's perhaps not that much of a hassle to try out?

                  Yet.
                  Because when there is, there's also the possibility that Kubuntu will cease to exist.
                  And if Kubuntu ceases to exist, Mint KDE might cease as well, since it's directly based on it.

                    They are all racked up, but if you are talking about my main Fedora system, it's a NUC-like Cubi Box that is smaller than the size of a graphics card.
