AMDGPU-PRO plus victzhang's Experimental OpenCL driver for Ubuntu 16.04

Because I am not a developer, I can't post in victzhang's thread ( Experimental OpenCL driver for Ubuntu 16.04  ) and ask this question, so I am asking it here.

 

My question is: Is it possible to use both the AMDGPU-PRO driver and victzhang's Experimental driver?  The reason is I have both an RX480 (which works fine with AMDGPU-PRO) and a R9-270 which is not supported by the AMDGPU-PRO yet.

 

When I try to install the experimental driver (this is with AMDGPU-PRO already installed), I get an error about overwrite.

 

$ sudo dpkg -i fglrx-core_15.302-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
