      Hi!

       

      I just wanted to know if is it normal, after installing driver amdgpu-pro for my Radeon RX470 4GB, it appears "Kernel driver in use: amdgpu"
      (Ussing commands like "lshw -c video" or "lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'" in my Ubuntu 16.04)
      I think that amdgpu driver is different from amdgpu-pro. Isn't it?

       

      Thank you!

       

      EDIT: I followed this guide How-To Install/Uninstall AMD Radeon™ Software AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux® on an Ubuntu System but I didn't perform the last step.
      I don't know if I need to configure it, adding my user to the group "video". Am I using Vulkan at all? I don't fully understand difference between amdgpu driver and Vulkan.
      Anyway, I saw under Vulkan page that RX470 was not supported... isn't it?
