AMDGPU (also known as xf86-video-amdgpu) is an open-source and very performant graphics driver dedicated to AMD Radeon GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), integrated into the mainline Linux kernel since version 4.2. Until now, AMDGPU received a single minor update, xf86-video-amdgpu 1.0.1, but today’s release adds multiple changes.
Release highlights of AMDGPU 1.1.0 include support for the upcoming Polaris 10 and 11 family of AMD GPUs, makes the OpenGL and VDPAU (Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix) interoperation to work with DRI3 enabled, add the “TearFree” option to prevent tearing with reflection and rotation under X.Org Server 1.16 or later.
