There's no changes in the OpenCL compute performance either with this latest AMD Linux driver.

There really isn't much to see out of this latest AMD Catalyst Linux graphics driver update for R9 290 hardware... It's sad, but that's the case right now. If you didn't see from the earlier articles just how poorly the brand new AMD hardware is doing on Linux, see my original R9 290 Linux review and the 14-way GPU results in Friday's GeForce GTX 780 Ti Linux review.
