AMDGPU DRM For Linux 4.7 Will Bring Some Performance Boosts For The R9 Fury
With Counter-Strike: Global Offensive there was no measurable change in performance (the Linux 4.6 R9 Fury run had a high variance between test runs as shown by the graph).
Similar to the Radeon DRM-Next tests, BioShock Infinite and DIRT Showdown were also failing to run on this 4.7 DRM code with these newer GCN graphics cards.
No changes in performance for Tonga or Fiji to talk about with Tesseract or Team Fortress 2.
Under the demanding Unigine Heaven benchmark, the performance remained the same.
