How is the driver different than vulkan-radeon from mesa?

To me it seems like 2 drivers for the same thing.

Why wouldn't AMD merge them into one?

amdvlk and radv (mesa) are completely different drivers.
It depends on the game which one is better.
At the moment, radv is the better default option, but amdvlk is gaining quality and performance.
Both are opensource though and both benefit of the work done on the other one.

The main advantage of amdvlk at the moment is faster release cycles so we can get newer Vulkan releases earlier then with mesa.

radv was created because Airlie at mesa did not want to wait for AMD to opensource their AMDVLK driver and AMD took longer then intended in doing so due to low ressources.

Merging them is more or less impossible as far as I can see because the difference is too huge. Time will tell which one will be the "winner".

That's fair enough.

Thanks for explaining.
