Time to build an AMD gaming machine?
sr_ls_boy commented on 12 September 2017 at 11:57 am UTC

chancho_zombieOuch! I also have the mce freeze but I thought it was the same bug! the bug happens sometimes when resuming from sleep?? try the patch I said, you'll have to compile the kernel yourself but it improved everything 100 percent for me, not had a crash in 5 days and counting. But yes it does not solve the mce bug. I think it's a different bug, but the cause is the same (the cpu bug). It's like the cores and the threads won't wake up and the kernel tries and tries and the cpu goes yawn!! FY let me sleep.

Anyway I'm quite happy with the performance I trust that AMD or the kernel developers will fix this.

I was wondering if this was ever fixed. My new Ryzen build might have this sleep bug. I leave my computer alone and come
back in the morning to find it frozen. I thought it had something to do with the wrong sleep profile.

Don't use amdgpu-pro. You are losing out. Use AMD staging kernel and Mesa.

What is your framerate in the Witcher 3 with Vega 56?

I know, never again. I only installed amdgpu-pro, because I did not know how many missing pieces were there and how much time I will be compiling stuff. It turned out that I only needed a custom kernel.

Now that's not a Linux game, so I wouldn't know.

But I am open for requests to benchmark something from my library, if somebody is interested.

Obviously it means in Wine in such case.

Honestly, the only way I would bother with Witcher 3 is if somebody would provide me with a copy. I have no intention of paying for a non-Linux game.

I am going to try Mankind Divided, Tomb Raider and Alien Isolation thought.
