    More likely it is that gnome is not compatible with Mesa. Or buggy configuration in the distro kernel. Use a custom kernel, Oibaf ppa Mesa dev and Xfce. My Ryzen 5 1600 & RX560 PC works rock solid, now for second day. I have played several hours Tomb Raider 2013 and Portal 2. Disable standby features from the kernel, turn you computer off when you are not using to make components last longer. A custom no debug kernel with ssd and Xfce boots ultra fast and shuts down immediately.

    No, setting gamma/color-temp is broken. Here is the patch which should fix it, but it hasn't made it into 4.15-rc1:

    I have a SI 7870 in a myth/steam box and with initial usage I haven't noticed any adverse side effects with running 4.15-rc1 with amdgpu.dc=1.

    Yeah, setting gamma/color-temperature is broken for me as well.

    I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed this (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103489) regression I reported a month ago, which causes my machine to lock-up 100% of the time when my 4k TV is enabled, made it into -rc1.

    So I just tried the spin from Ubuntus mainline repository, and DP audio from my Fury to my MG279Q is still not working unless I resample everything to 48khz.

    debianxfce I know the timers api was refactored in 4.15, that's likely the source of your problem. Here's the patch that did the refactoring (there may be others): https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10074919/

    Just upgraded, performance in actual OpenGL applications seems to be fine, but I noticed I couldn't even move windows around smoothly. Apparently this broke vsync'd window management with compton (a compositor for WMs), especially the opengl-swc and opengl-mswc methods of vsync. The other methods of vsync took a huge performance hit and results in windows not being able to be moved smoothy, no problems on 4.14. I know early release candidates can be pretty buggy, I'll give it some more time and wait for rc2. Maybe some userspace packages need to be updated too.

    Using an RX460 on Arch.
