Warning: The following instructions are for installing proprietary closed source software on your computer. Although you can find help on the openSUSE forum about the amdgpu-pro DDX, the Free and Open Source amdgpu DDX provided by the package xf86-video-amdgpu is in most cases the best choice for AMD APUs and GPUs manufactured after 2011.

Version: Leap 15.0 The AMDGPU-PRO driver provided for openSUSE Leap 15.0


AMDGPU-PRO is the next generation closed source graphics component that operates on top of the open source AMDGPU drivers for newer AMD/ATI Radeon graphics cards.

This guide is to help you install the AMDGPU-PRO proprietary AMD drivers for video cards from Radeon GPU HD 7000 to most recent series only.

AMDGPU-PRO cannot be included and integrated into the openSUSE distribution because it is not licensed as Free and Open Source Software.

Check HCL:AMD video cards to select the driver that best suits your hardware first before proceeding.
