Will there be any improvement in the amdgpu-pro driver regarding (B) frame rate and (A) portability?
I have not found a sufficiently easy way to install 17.30 on Manjaro Linux;
and I would prefer to stick to Manjaro, because: I like rolling releases.
On my box (A10-5800K & RX 550 2GiB) I found, that in SecondLife (Phoenix_FirestormOS-Releasex64_x86_64_184.108.40.206912)
|1. fglrx on Archlinux with kernel4.13&Xorg1.19 i get||35(11)fps in a certain scene||(in brackets: the frame rate with "Advanced Lighting Model" (ALM);|
|2. amdgpu&RX550 on Manjaro with kernel4.13&Xorg1.19 i get||41fps in that scene||(amdgpu cannot do ALM for things that are more than 1m away);|
|3. amdgpu-pro17.10&RX550 on Manjaro with kernel4.9&Xorg1.18 i get||10(5)fps in that scene;|
|4. amdgpu-pro17.30&RX550 on Ubuntu16.04.3 i get||52(34)fps in that scene.|
It seems like 17.30 on RX550 is only 3 times faster than fglrx on HD7660D...
I expected a factor of 4.5: PassMark - Video Card Performance Comparison
Is there still some headroom for improvement?
Or will amdgpu-pro never be faster (e. g.: 60(49)fps) than 52(34)fps in that scene running on the RX550?
