    And remove avahi, dns, modemmanager etc unused services with a software manager (Synaptic probably is in Ubuntu too). Check booting speed with: systemd-analyze time

    Non debug 1000Hz timer kernel is a custom kernel that you create for your hardware. it will make your operating system snappier.
    This does not affect the amdgpu driver!

    Then to speed up the computer, remove unneeded services and make a non debug 1000Hz timer kernel.
    I do not think I know what you are talking about.

    with updated linux-firmware.git I get still only 23 fps average in hitman benchmark. Additionally graphics is stuttering, which it did not before :-( I think I will have to wait for kernel 4.11 in ubuntu and amdgpu updates, for now I have no further idea...

    P. S. I already use SSD only

    I added in
    /etc/X11/Xsession.d
    the file 99amdgpu.conf with contents:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "AMD"
    Driver "amdgpu"
    EndSection

    But I still get radeonsi in xserver logs:
    [email protected]:/var/log$ less Xorg.0.log|grep amdgpu
    [ 29.181] loading driver: amdgpu
    [ 29.181] (==) Matched amdgpu as autoconfigured driver 0

    You should also regenerate initramfs
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    Did the trick. But hitman and CSS are not a single frame faster 😥

    You should also regenerate initramfs or alternatively append "module_blacklist=radeon" or "modprobe.blacklist=radeon" (not sure what will work in Ubuntu) to the kernel cmdline.
