    Phoronix: AMD Publishes More DC Patches, Disables FreeSync By Default

    If you have encountered some early fallout from using the AMDGPU DC display stack or just want to help in testing patches likely to be queued for Linux 4.16, AMD has sent out another patch of DC patches...

    I thought FreeSync will be included in 4.16 only? Or does that only apply for Vega?

      once there is open source #FreeSync I might actually update my current 4k display to a (slightly bigger?) FreeSync one: https://rene.rebe.de/2014-01-27/dell...p2414q-on-mac/ and get a decent #AMD GPU card just for that, too ;-)

        Does anyone know if "Primitive Shaders" will also come to Linux?

          I'm still waiting for a decent FreeSync 2 display.

                I thought they were done for radeonsi.

                  Doubt it, but I guess this is why AMD wants more time to implement Freesync properly in userspace.

                  On Windows, Freesync works with games running in borderless window and with video playback in the Windows 10 video app, but it will stick to it's upper limit for normal desktop work, so basically it's disabled. The transition is seamless. Sadly it doesn't work with third party video players. Not that Freesync is super useful for video playback, but I still hope it will work with mpv and others when it comes to GNU/Linux.

                    Are there patches to optimize the code and have a considerable lines reduction too? I wonder...
