Radeon + AMDGPU Performance On Linux 4.6

Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 29 March 2016. Page 3 of 3. 47 Comments

There basically isn't anything to see out of these OpenGL results of benchmarking the AMDGPU and Radeon DRM drivers on Linux 4.6 Git relative to Linux 4.5 stable. At least though there's new functionality (AMDGPU reset support, ACP i2s audio) and no apparent regressions, but the R9 285 on this particular setup seems to be running into a re-clocking/performance issue once again. You can dig through more of these results via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
