AMDGPU PRO in ROSA R8

Сообщение euspectre » 07 ноя 2016, 13:21

Good news for the lucky owners of relatively new AMD GPUs - the proprietary driver AMDGPU PRO is now available in ROSA R8. Currently, it is in the unofficial "x11-backports" repositories.

AMD released this X11 driver for Ubuntu (and, strangely enough, for RHEL 7), but we have repackaged it for our OS as well. The driver is currently experimental and in "beta" stage, so it may contain bugs. Still, you can try it.

So far, we have run only a handful of benchmarks on this driver in ROSA R8 with kernel 4.8 on a system with Radeon RX 460 GPU. Compared to the opensource graphics components (Mesa 12.0.3), the gains of AMDGPU PRO are not that huge but they are quite visible anyway. Here are the results of Unigine Valley benchmark with the default settings, for example:

* AMDGPU PRO:
Avg. FPS: 41 (min 18, max 75)

* Mesa 12.0.3:
Avg. FPS: 32 (min 14, max 54)

Installation and confguration instructions are now here: http://wiki.rosalab.ru/en/index.php/AMDGPU_PRO

So, give AMDGPU PRO a try! As usual, you are welcome to upload the info about your system running AMDGPU PRO using our hw-probe tool (https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?view=howto).

thanx very much for your work....
it seems that AMD is on a good road regarding linux world. i have a apu e2-7110, radeon r2. and i am unable yet to run amdgpu pro.
still, i want to make a suggestion: while testing a graphic stack, you better test the power management also. this is very important, especially for laptops. i noticed that all the tests are focused on performance, how much FPS i can get.
right now, i am running fglrx on rosa fresh 8 an still hope that by the end of the 2018 to get full support by the new graphic stack, just like in windows 10.

Thanks euspectre. The new RX460 is working nicely thanks to your installation details. Removing nomodeset from the kernel boot parameters was necessary for me. I did this in

/etc/default/grub
and
/boot/grub2/grub.cfg
then ran
grub2-mkconfig
to make changes permanent.

Some errors appeared during the installation of the 4.9.20-nrj-desktop-1rosa-x86_64 kernel, but they did not have any serious affect. Everything is working.

Yes, this is fine. Actually, it would be enough to change just /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and then run update-grub2 or grub2-mkconfig.
