Hello all,

 

I just installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 16.04, installed the latest drivers from AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux® – Release Notes by following the provided instructions, and then tried out the drivers in CS:GO where I found that even on low resolution settings fps drops below 80 at times, with an idle average of around 150. Considering I was getting this with my old GTX560 Im a bit confused... is this the current expected performance?

 

Running:

AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor

cpu MHz  : 3311.126

ram : 16G

OS : ubuntu 16.04 clean install

PSU : 850W

 

What I notice is that the ouput of :  dpkg -l amdgpu-pro

Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold

| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend

|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

||/ Name           Version      Architecture Description

+++-==============-============-============-=================================

ii  amdgpu-pro     16.30.3-3154 amd64        This package install all amdgpu-p

 

Which looks like the drivers are indeed installed, but Im unsure what the extra output is at the top, were the drivers somehow corrupted perhaps?

 

What can I try to further diagnose this??
