Hitting the linux-firmware.git tree this early morning ended up new AMDGPU firmware files for IP blocks located on impending hardware. It truly is likely these new firmware files are for the forthcoming Ryzen 7040 collection mobile processors with RDNA3 graphics.
New firmware documents appeared in the Linux firmware supply tree for GC 11..1, DCN 3.1.4, SDMA 6..1, PSP 13..4, and the VCN 4..2 IP blocks.
Because of to the “block by block” IP enablement tactic for the open-resource graphics driver stack, it truly is not quickly clear to the general public / outdoors events which graphics processors these IP variations will essentially correlate to. Aside from with GC 11..1, it is reflecting RDNA3.
In any party these certain GC 11..1 / DCN 3.1.4 / SDMA 6..1 / PSP 13..4 / VCN 4..2 blocks are now enabled in the AMDGPU kernel driver code, so now it can be just a issue of obtaining this firmware assist picked up by Linux distributions shipping and delivery the most recent Linux kernel and Mesa for in switch being ready to take pleasure in accelerated graphics support with this forthcoming AMD graphics hardware.
Provided the timing although and that AMD tends to not publish their AMDGPU firmware data files until eventually a merchandise has introduced or very shut to launching, it can be pretty attainable these information are for the Ryzen 7040 series laptop processors declared before this thirty day period at CES and element RDNA3 graphics. These AMDGPU firmware documents have been additional by AMD’s Mario Limonciello who tends to concentration a lot more on the consumer/CPU/APU side of the property relatively than discrete graphics playing cards, adding even more excess weight that it could be for future cell/laptop computer graphics components.
In any circumstance it truly is great to see these new AMDGPU firmware data files now general public in linux-firmware.git. Last thirty day period it wasn’t right until the Radeon RX 7900 sequence graphics cards have been shipping that individuals firmware documents were being upstreamed as is commonly the scenario on the AMD side with usually not publishing these firmware blobs also early, contrary to their open-source kernel and Mesa driver guidance being worked on for months in advance.
