AMDGPU-PRO 18.50 vs. ROCm 2.0 OpenCL Performance
With the SHOC OpenCL tests, ROCm 2.0 was generally faster than the OpenCL driver found within the 18.50 driver package. The only slight exception was better MD5 hashing performance on SHOC.
The cl-mem OpenCL memory benchmark meanwhile saw much better vRAM copy and read performance when using the 18.50 OpenCL driver.
