Amd Gpu Pro detects my R7 240 as HD 8500 + terrible visual glitches on gnome ubuntu 16.04 x64

Question asked by murkdum on Jan 27, 2017

The amd gpu pro driver for linux detects the wrong GPU on my system, saying that my r7 240 is an HD8500 card. Beyond that, i get worse performance with amd gpu pro compared to the latest Radeon SI open source driver on mesa 13. Also, the desktop is glitched, i have black visual lines and squares that cover any wallpaper (but the same doesn't happen if i chose a color instead of a wallpaper for background), those squares and lines also pretty much cover anything else, from icons to software layout like steam program, firefox, etc.
