AMDGPU-PRO 16.60 is now officially available for AMD GPU owners and it adds support for even more cards including GCN 1.0.

It might not cover the whole of GCN 1.0, as their generations and naming schemes are mixed in together. Some cards in the same series are from different generations, for example. Cards like the 7900 series still aren't listed.

AMD Radeon™ R7 M260/M265/M340/M350/M365/M370/M380/M465/M465X ​
AMD Radeon™ R7 240/250/250X/260/260X/350 ​
AMD Radeon™ HD7700/7800/8500/8600 ​
AMD Radeon™ HD7700M/7800M/8500M/8530M/8600M/8700M/8790M/8800M ​

Issues fixed:
- Hard-hangs are sometimes observed during display hot-plug.
- Launching Steam client sometimes causes system hang.
- Rendering error in glxgears in performance mode.

Features supported:
- Supported APIs:
* OpenGL 4.5 and GLX 1.4
* OpenCL™1.2
* Vulkan™ 1.0
* VDPAU
- Basic display features

I wonder if there is something particular difficult or wrong with the 79x0 series that it is not supported by that release?

Goodbye Padoka, you served me well.

00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Mullins [Radeon R4/R5 Graphics] [1002:9851] (rev 05) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

So, is that in there or what? :P These naming-problems are ridiculous!

Anyway, is there any real performance benefit yet, going AMDGPU?

what aput APU support? the last time i've used AMDGPU-PRO on my notebook with AMD APU A10 8700p (GCN 1.2) i had really bad performance and really high temperature (and worse power managment)

The R9 270 & 270X still aren't listed

Hey, guys, the open source driver are still better in a lot of cases, unless you have special needs, of course.

I need to upgrade my old card (will probably build a whole new rig), I saw the Furry X at 250€, same price as the 480. Should I buy one of these? (which?), or wait for vega? (I do not plan to spend more than ~350 anyway, 250 is OK.

I just wonder why wont they officially support arch yet? all this seems good and all but its just so limited, not to mention the mesa drivers are better than this ... but i guess all progress is good atleast.
