AMD Reportedly Planning Big Driver Update For November
A year ago AMD released the Windows/Linux "Omega" driver that brought in many significant changes though the Linux results were mixed. If new information out today is accurate, AMD is planning a similar hefty update for next month.
The report seems to primarily come out of WCCFTECH while details on the expected changes are scarce. There's belief that AMD could mostly be focusing upon Microsoft Direct3D 12 improvements, which wouldn't help Linux users unless there's any shared code-paths with their forthcoming Vulkan driver.
Though as it's been a month and a half since the Catalyst 15.9 Linux release as AMD's latest beta/stable Linux graphics driver, any update would be appreciated especially with Linux 4.x kernel support and bug-fixes for the latest Steam Linux titles. Expect more information next month.
