F1 2015: Don't Go Racing Yet With AMDGPU-Pro Or RadeonSI Gallium3D
I tried today's F1 2015 Linux release with both a Radeon R9 285 and R9 Fury. I started with the AMDGPU-PRO 16.20.3 driver release from last week.
As soon as launching F1 2015 under Linux with AMD graphics, there's the usual Feral warning about "unsupported graphics card or driver."
When ignoring said warning, the F1 2015 screen is basically all white with the AMDGPU-PRO current Linux driver.
Some overlays and menu items do appear, but for everything else, no go.
Thus the game was unplayable on AMDGPU-PRO 16.20.3 atop Ubuntu 16.04 for both the R9 285 and R9 Fury...
So I tried using Mesa 11.3-dev (via the Padoka PPA) on the same system while using the Ubuntu 16.04 Linux 4.4 kernel. However, that too failed as shown in these latest screenshots.
So under my tests so far of F1 2015, I can't get the game running properly with either the AMDGPU-PRO hybrid driver or using the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver from Mesa 11.3-dev Git.
But when popping in a NVIDIA GeForce graphics card and loading in the NVIDIA 367 driver beta, I was straight off to the races! It's working fine for NVIDIA Linux, so I'll have some F1 2015 green benchmarks coming up today or tomorrow. No issues so far on the green side.
