[Phoronix] Mesa 20.2 RADV Driver Flips On ACO By Default For Quicker Game Load Times, Better Performance

As we have been expecting, as of a few minutes ago in Mesa 20.2-devel Git, the Radeon Vulkan "RADV" driver has enabled the Valve-backed ACO shader compiler by default rather than AMD's official AMDGPU LLVM shader compiler back-end.

With the last of the blockers cleared for reaching feature parity with the AMDGPU LLVM back-end, RADV is now defaulting to using ACO in place of the AMDGPU LLVM shader compiler that is currently used by RadeonSI, ROCm, and other AMD graphics driver components. RADV though being developed outside of AMD by the community and stakeholders at Valve / Red Hat / Google have the flexibility of changing the default to this AMD compiler back-end that was funded by Valve over the past year, merged for Mesa 20.0, and in good enough shape that it's now the default with next quarter's Mesa 20.2.
This is fantastic news for Radeon Linux gamers! They can now enjoy quick compile times just like Nvidia's proprietary compiler without having to set any variables with this future release. When I had my Radeon VII installed I used the ACO compiler as my default and was one of the contributors that pushed me to use Linux as my default OS.

This is one of those moments where open source shows its strength.
