    Yes I remember radeon driver only, thats why I wanted to try amdgpu / amdgpu pro: So I blacklisted radeon module, but radeon still gets loaded.

    I am on ubuntu 17.04 w/ kernel 4.10.0-19-generic.

    I have hitman game installed via steam and it says that my drivers where incompatible, but works though. This message was already gone in ubuntu 16.10 w/ Mesa upgraded to Version 13, respectively 17.

    Now I have framerates of 10-20 fps ingame :-(

    Trying to remember... was the reported regression on radeon only ? If so then building/using a kernel with amdgpu enabled for CIK might help as well.

    For leder, what kind of performance are you seeing relative to what Michael has been reporting recently ?

    I just read, that kernel 4.11 seems to be resolving the regression problem of the GPU...

    article on r9 290: poor performance

    I have r9 290x and want to optimize FPS in hitman game. Additionally Ubuntu 17.04 gives me ghost pictures in desktop, when running steam games 😣
    My last bet is running amdgpu pro driver on upcoming Ubuntu 16.04.3, including current mesa Framework and linux-firmware and GCN1.1 Support.

    Any ideas, before I down grade my system?

    Thanks in advance!
Working...
