I tried to install the proprietary AMD drivers from the website, but it didn't work because they are only for SteamOS, Ubuntu and RHEL. The Debian wiki covers only older models of AMD GPUs. I searched everywhere but it only shows the Mesa drivers, which I don't want to use.

Specs: AMD Radeon RX 470, Debian 9


The proprietary driver stopped being updated a while ago and is no longer compatible with the X server used in Debian 9 (or in any other recent distribution — for example Ubuntu 16.04 and later aren’t supported either). For a Radeon RX 470, you should use the amdgpu driver.
