Default MESA3D vs AMDGPU-PRO?

Anyone have some experience using the two drivers?

- Which is faster for gaming?
- Any recommendations on software for tweaking?

I think in general AMD's opens source driver is so close in gaming and so hassle free that you should go with that, the pro driver does have few specific wins but they are mostly on pro apps.

have dredge through

I haven't tried AMDGPU-PRO but I have tried AMDGPU and MESA. I honestly didn't notice much difference with VegaM(Polaris 22 [Radeon RX Vega M GH).

But does the AMDGPU driver have a control panel? Because it kinda sucks that the MESA3D one doesn't :\

For tweaking, you must use command-line parameters for various tasks. As said xrandr for tweaking resolutions and refresh rates.

For 3D settings there are these environment variables:
vblank_mode=x (sync refresh 0 or 1)
R600_TEX_ANISO=x (anisotropic filtering 0-16)
GALLIUM_MSAA=x (Antialiasing level - but this does not work for amdgpu 0-8)
pp_jimenezmlaa=x (Morphological AA values 0-32)

For fan control there is a graphical setting/monitoring app: https://github.com/marazmista/radeon-profile

It kinda stinks there is no "Control Panel" for Linux anymore, but most of the options can be controlled via environment variables.

I'll probably end up making a simple gui then. But man that sucks. C'mon AMD release a control panel with at least old school catalyst level of controls
