A good site that is updated regularly with info on testing Linux graphics and hardware performance is Phoronix.

Thank you. That's great advice. Right now everything works so I won't go down the non-free firmware path unless I have to. Definitely no video or image editing, just casual gaming on my side.

Installed amdgpu-pro-18.50-708488-ubuntu-18.04 today on my radeon R7 250 using your method on Mint 19.1 and worked like a chime. FPS increased. Thank you very much. I gave up when Ubuntu 16 came out trying to install AMD GPU drivers. Now I'm a happy Mint 19.1 user thanks to you!
