as expected amd cards still perform miserable on linux even after years of development. with the release of steam machines this is another setback for amd that will certainly leave it marks.


phoronix has stated that once more amd's drivers are to blame, which has been a well-known disadvantage and the reason for many to turn their backs on amd.


i find it disturbing that a company like amd remains unable to figure out how to get the best performance out of their hardware even after years and years.
