So I have a R9 390x on a linux system (RHEL 6, CentOS 6 to be precise). I plan on using this graphics card for OpenCL pretty much exclusively. Since I don't care to use this graphics card for video purposes do I still need to install the AMDGPU-PRO driver?: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-RedHat-Install.aspx

 

Or acn I simply just install the OpenCL 2.0 driver?: AMD OpenCL™ 2.0 Driver

 

Bonus question: Will the OpenCL driver listed above support an R9 390x?

 

Bonus question 2: The AMDGPU-PRO driver help page above includes a helper preinstall helper script to make sure all of the dependencies are resolved before installing it. Will this same script work for making sure the OpenCL 2.0 driver dependencies are resolved?

 

Bonus question 3: Will I need to uninstall/remove OpenCL 1.2 before installing this driver? The machine came with some OpenCL .so(s) that came with the old card.
