Currently, the Radeon Pro driver does not ship with some key components needed for ROCm Platform.   Both drivers derived from the same common base the  AMD GPU Linux driver, but ROCm also has been enhancements to the kernel driver we call ROCk ('KFD"). ROCt Thunk Layer, and the ROCr runtime.   These essential foundation of ROCm Platform are what give us the foundation to bring a broader set of programming language for GPU Computing.  

So at this time it does not support ROCm capabilities are not supported in RadeonPro driver.
