    amdgpu 18.40 driver ubuntu 18.04.1 vertical sync issue

    entwwwicklung

      Hi all,

       

      I have RX 560 GPU & Linux Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS;

       

      I've used legacy linux drivers earlier (mesa or something like that i believe) and everything worked fine.

      However wanted to try out this new AMDgpu 18.40 driver for Ubuntu, downloaded it from your website and followed instructions.

      Steam games seems to work fine (probably because they have their own video settings and i play them using Vulkan), but when using PC on daily bases (youtube, videos, scrolling web pages, etc..) my screen is tearing, like Vertical Sync is switched off.

      Found few "suggestions" how to resolve it, but none of those are working.

      So why don't I ask AMD directly, you guys know that for sure, right?

       

      Also, 2 more things.

      amdgpu-pro driver is giving me red squares across the screen, not working at all.

      when are you planing to provide us with some GUI software like windows users have?

       

      Can you please advise?

       

      Best regards

          You have answered your own question

           

          from Linuxconfig.org: How to Install The Latest AMD Radeon Drivers on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver LinuxLinuxconfigAMDGPU-Pro.PNG

          In other words: If you are not a Developer, Software Architect or Audiovisual Content Creator then you do not need the AMD Proprietary Drivers.

           

          About your request:

          when are you planing to provide us with some GUI software like windows users have?

           

          IMHO If all the inhabitants of this planet with Internet access and having an AMD GPU can choose free and open software options is because thousands and thousands of Developers, including those of AMD, offer their efforts and knowledge so that we all enjoy free choice, consequently they are not obliged to offer us a GUI to configure our GPU.

           

          All the best
