    Phoronix: Early Work Bringing VCE1 Video Encode To AMDGPU DRM

    There's more good news about work-in-progress patches for those GCN 1.0 owners that have been looking to get your graphics card running full-featured under the AMDGPU DRM driver rather than the existing Radeon Direct Rendering Manager driver...
