        Until AMD creates a GUI for Linux, we will always know they consider Linux users second or third class citizens.

        Of course Nvidia is much, much, worse overall because they are closed source, but we shouldn't give AMD a pass for refusing to provide a Linux GUI. Especially now that they're finally making money again. With much of that due to the myriads of Linux users like me who supported them throughout their dark decade.

          right... i really don't know what is the problem of creating a driver GUI...

          in the past bridgman told us to create a driver gui before the driver has the hardware functionality is not worth doing it...

          but today,,,, what kind of hardware functionality does the driver need to have to say the hardware side is finished so we can have a driver gui ?

              Just like Intel I guess. I mean, they also have a Windows UI for their iGPUs that is not available on Linux.

                GUI comes up again... Maybe someone ought to list the desired features, and then there can be an easily re-post-able comment detailing which ones won't work and why.

                  Why ? What problem do you have with the Indians? An engineer is good or bad regardless of nationality!

                  However, I am happy for this choice and I wish the newcomers good work.

                    Talk of AMD control panels or QT based control panels from AMD has been going on for years but nothing ever comes of it. It's very discouraging.

                    You should read some of the old comments.

                    I'd be happy to receive the old control panel, just give us something!
