    Couple more questions:

    1. I wonder if future driver releases will include HSA support?

    2. Since there is local repo now, how about setup repository on AMD.com?

I understand this particular release about rolling out Vulkan driver, but what about video encoding in future driver releases? Is there any plans to do that and how? VA-API or something different?
      The current preview driver should have the same video encode/decode support as the amdgpu all-open stack (I think that's GStreamer but not sure), let us know if you aren't seeing that.

      Should be enabled by default just like the current preview driver -- what I'm not sure about yet is how much QA coverage it will get. If you check post #32 above at least 1 user is running the stack on CI already.

        We haven't merged latest HSA support (specifically dGPU support) back into the amdgpu tree but that's fairly high on the priority list.

        At the moment amdgpu staging is running on a 4.4-based tree while amdkfd staging is running on a 4.1-based tree... my ongoing "spare time" project is to try and get amdkfd staging moved to 4.4 as well, which is a pre-requisite to pushing kfd (and HSA support) back into amdgpu.

        IIRC the initial preview release contains kfd code from 4.3 upstream, which includes Carrizo support but not dGPU.

          3D does not work, need to wait for non Ubuntu specific packages.

                HD7790 is special, right? It doesn't mean that HD7970 is supported by this new driver?

                  Because there is more than time-killer games out there and not everyone is consumer but producer.

                    In the final release, will these components be separated? So the packages in the repos would only include the closed components?

                    I assume this amdgpu already has DAL? So HDMI/DP audio works?

                      hybrid driver? Does that mean AMD to allow Vulkan within OpenGL apps like Nvidia? Would help many devs I guess.

                      PS: What about support for multiple GPUs working simultaneously together.
