RX 480 in Linux with AMDGPU-Pro Driver

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

Has anyone been successful folding with the latest AMD proprietary driver on an RX 480 or other AMD GPU?  I can run FAHBench, and scores are similar to what I get in Windows.

 

The Folding client recognizes my GPU, gets a WU assignment, and then immediately gets an interrupt.  This is a never ending loop of retries.  Am I missing something obvious?

 

OS: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
GPU: RX 480
Driver: AMDGPU-Pro

I am trying to put together some more performance numbers for the RX 480, so any help would be appreciated. :thumb:

Thought I would bump this thread, since there was no interest on the folding forum.

 

@BeerCan were you able to get this working?  I don't currently have an AMD GPU in any of my Linux rigs, but I could throw one in and do some testing if you have gotten it working.

post #3 of 27
Have not folded on an AMD card in quite some time redface.gif and most certainly not in Linux.
Maybe @DarthBaggins has some insight.
post #4 of 27
I did set up that 24/7 folding rig with pair of R9 Furys, but it is on Windows. If I can find time, I can set up an Ubuntu USB drive and mess around with that. No promises I can actually get any information (at least in a timely manner) for you because I've worked with Lunix for all of 5 minutes or so.

Thanks for the offer. :thumb:  No big deal, I have a few Linux machines, but none of them currently have AMD GPUs.  I am going to put a 480 back on the test bench, and I'll update this thread once I get it up and running.

I just snagged a 4GB RX480, and I currently have it folding in Arch Linux. :D

 

I am using the open-source AMDGPU driver with the necessary OpenCL bits added in via an AUR package.

 

I'm not sure what changed between the 16.30 driver and the current 16.50 driver, but everything appears to be working now. :wheee:

Is it any better or worse than the proprietary driver?  Or for that matter with Windows?

I just did a quick test to see if the new driver was working. I'm going to let it fold for the next few days, and then I'll have some numbers for the 480 in Linux. Once it runs a variety of WUs, I'll post up some numbers to compare to Windows.
post #9 of 27
I am rolling back to 372.90 tonight. No failed WUs but I am 'sure' rolleyes.gif the hotfix driver is giving 10-15% lower ppd
post #10 of 27
Thread Starter 

I have the RX 480 folding in Linux again.  For some reason there were conflicts when I had the 1050ti set as the primary card.  I had no issues running the two cards for BOINC projects, but folding on the 480 with the 1050ti as the primary card would cause the 480 to fail all tasks.  The error might be related to the fact that the current Linux NVIDIA drivers cannot fold core21 WUs, and might be using some non-standard library calls that are conflicting with the AMD drivers.

 

For now I only have the 480 running, and the 1050ti is idle.  I am going to let it fold a few tasks before I reinstall the NVIDIA drivers.  This is not how I ultimately want to have it setup, because this machine serves as the test bed for my main rig which uses a 1070 for the primary GPU.

 

Currently clocks on the 480 are 1306/1750, with fan set to 70%, and GPU temp is 57 C.  Folding a p11711 with a TPF of 3:50 for 287k PPD.  I'll add some results to the GPU database after the Foldathon.
