Solus Lands AMDGPU and Radeon Goodies for AMD Radeon Users, Linux Kernel 4.8.8

This is where the Solus developers excel, as they’ve already managed to push the new AMDGPU and Radeon driver versions to the stable repositories of the Solus 1.2.1 “Shannon” operating system because of the super easy packaging system they implemented. On top of that, they also switched to the CFQ scheduler for better HDD performance. These updates lay the groundwork for a better AMD Radeon experience in Solus. As soon as Linux kernel 4.9 is out, which should hit the streets on December 4, 2016, the Solus development team will enable support for Southern Islands family of AMD GPUs thanks to the new “Enable amdgpu support for SI parts” option in Linux kernel 4.9.
