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.
