AMD --
There is finally a new release of the AMDGPU-PRO hybrid Radeon graphics driver stack for Linux.

With this new release, AMDGPU-PRO 16.40, there is finally official support for Red Hat based systems rather than only Ubuntu LTS releases. However, no change-log has yet been published to outline the other changes with AMDGPU-PRO 16.40. The previous public release was based on AMDGPU-PRO 16.30.

The Ubuntu AMDGPU-PRO 16.40 download link is available here. It seems to only indicate Ubuntu 16.04 LTS support and no mention of Ubuntu 16.10.

The Red Hat download link can be found here with support for RHEL 7.2. No word on whether it will work with Fedora, but likely not if it's targeting only the RHEL7 stack.

More details on the AMDGPU-PRO 16.40 Linux changes as they become available. Benchmarks to follow.
