Earlier this week I delivered my initial benchmarks of the new AMDGPU Linux driver stack for supporting the AMD Radeon R9 285 "TONGA" and all new/future GPUs like Carrizo and Fiji. The new AMDGPU kernel driver is present in the upcoming Linux 4.2 kernel while on the user-space side there's separate code branches required for libdrm and Mesa. Fortunately, it looks like that work will be merged soon.
Lately, I found myself being asked by many of my readers, as well as some of my friends, if it's worth installing Linux on their Mac, so I decided to write this editorial and explain the situation from my point of view.
