At the moment what's the best AMD driver available for post gcn 1.2 gpu? Does amd gpu pro work on fedora 24/25? I want to switch to fedora from ubuntu (I hate unity) unfortunately ubuntu is the only distro which allows me to run the latest driver amd gpu pro so far, -anyone managed to get it running on fedora?

Thanks

  1. There is xorg-x11-drv-amdgpu package, as sergiomb answered, but is it a pro driver? I mean, what difference between pro and amgpu?

  2. http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-artic... Here is a a link with tarball amdgpu drivers on centos 7.*. I tried to install them according to manual, but there were conflicts between amgpu pro and installed x11 packages. Seems like there is only one way - xorg-x11-drv-amdgpu.

This is the open source version not the pro variant of AMD

FedoraForum suggests that there is a copr repository with the amdgpu-pro variant of the driver at Mystro256's fedoraproject page.

User "Dutchy" provides a useful summary for the current status of the amdgpu-pro driver at the above-linked FedoraForum thread:

Amdgpu-pro is not yet ready for newer kernel versions so it doesn't work with Fedora or Arch and others IIRC. AMD have released packages for RHEL but these cannot be installed on Fedora due to differences in dependencies and it probably wouldn't work anyway due to mismatches with regard to the kernel and possibly the X11 server. They appear to be working quite fiercely on it so let's hope they will release their driver for all distros soon (even though performance and stability appear to be quite bad, sometimes even worse than the open source stack in terms of fps).
