Ubuntu 16.04 open source driver OpenCL

Has anyone tried the open source driver shipped with Ubuntu 16.04?

I'm looking for a development platform for OpenCL programs under Linux, and I'm in between of Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 15.10.

If any benchmark shows OpenCL in AMPGPU driver is very inferior to fglrx, I may have to go with 15.10.


Hardware information:

CPU: Xeon E5 2696 V4 22 core 2.2GHz

RAM: 32GB REG ECC 2400MT/s *2

GPU: Radeon R9 nano 4GB HBM


Current operating system: Windows 7 64 bit (horrible support to new Intel Haswell-E processors and horrible GCC/LLVM compiler support, that's driving me to Linux).
