What are the chances AMD will release a R9 280x driver for Ubuntu 16.04?

Question asked by ak4life on Nov 25, 2016

Contacted AMD support, who told me to open a bug on Unofficial AMD Bugzilla. Done: 1256 – Any ETA on AMDGPU-PRO driver for R9 280x card for Ubuntu 16.04?

 

Meanwhile, I temporarily downgraded to Ubuntu Wily 15.10, which is the latest Ubuntu release AMD has a R9 280x driver for. No more GPU lockups with the fglrx 15.12 driver, but Ubuntu Wily is EOL as of July 28 [1] so now I'm on an unsupported Ubuntu release, without security updates!
