Radeon RADV "ACO" Performance On Mesa 19.3 Looking Good: With the ACO shader compiler back-end merged for Mesa 19.3 as of mid-September and more improvements merged since then, it's now very easy to try out this alternative to AMD's longstanding AMDGPU LLVM compiler back-end.

Here are our latest ACO benchmarks.
