gif showing the artifacting
since mesa 19 (using 19.0.2 at the moment), I've been experiencing artifacting / incorrect rendering of particles in DOOM 2016 running on a r9 270x with the amdgpu driver.
this happens with both vulkan and opengl renderers.
I have attached a gif that shows the artifacts. I also uploaded a renderdoc capture to mega (it's almost 1 gig, so I felt like it would be too much to add as a normal attachment): https://mega.nz/#!EV53mC5Q!vAugOwDn2iKqGaQ-KYNvfXg7oDNlhB3i74DvSnwdYD4
this doesn't happen on mesa 18.3.5
the game is running through proton 3.7-8 on steam. newer proton versions don't help
how to reproduce:
play any map that contains ambient particles, for example "kagindir sanctum" on arcade or story mode should have them right at the start
I don't have a renderdoc of particles working as intended but i will get one when i downgrade to mesa 18 again. you can look up videos of those maps on youtube to see that it's definitely not supposed to look like that. it feels like the intensity and speed of the particles is way higher than it should
my system info at the time of capture is also attached

system info at the time of the renderdoc capture
It's not clear to me what the issue is. Can you get a before and after screenshot?
I've run "kagindir sanctum" on both 19.0 and 18.3 and I didn't really notice any difference.
It also seemed pretty much the same as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0KV9s6Chjs
Can you try with LLVM 7 please?
This looks like a LLVM 8 regression to me.
Timothy: see the gif attached in the OP. it's not sped up. the particles are spazzing out that fast. I will capture better hi-res video of the before and after for better reference when I can
I just noticed my distro switched from llvm7 to llvm8 with mesa 19, nice guess.
I can't seem to build mesa 19.0.2 against llvm7, it complains about not having "llvm/Support/VirtualFileSystem.h". I could maybe try with 19.0.1 or even 18.3.5 and see if just changing llvm version breaks the particles
I'll test this in a couple of hours and let you know

[AMDGPU] Divergence driven instruction selection. Part 1.
Summary: This change is the first part of the AMDGPU target description
change. The aim of it is the effective splitting the vector and scalar
flows at the selection stage. Selection uses predicate functions based
on the framework implemented earlier - https://reviews.llvm.org/D35267

Fixed with LLVM r360293, I'm not sure if the fix will be backported to LLVM 8, but it's fixed with master now.
Note that if you want to use LLVM master, you need https://reviews.llvm.org/D60457 to workaround a recent regression affecting SI. That one should be pushed soon too.
Thanks for reporting.
