RDNA 3+ has already found its way into the Linux graphics stack

Such as a site specialized in Linux Voronix We’ve now discovered that the first RDNA 3+ (3.5)-based GPUs have already found their way into the free Linux graphics package Mesa 3D in version 23.3. According to current information, the new graphics units based on the modified architecture will be used for the first time in the Zen 5 APUs of the upcoming “Strix Point” and “Strix Halo” processor families.

In addition to Mesa 3D v23.3, the free Linux 6.7 kernel will also get initial support for the GFX1150 architecture known as RDNA 3+. The project page provides more details On the free developer platform Gitlab.

The Strix is ​​expected to follow the Phoenix in 2024

The upcoming Zen 5 APUs from the AMD Ryzen 8000 (“Strix Point”) series, which will follow the Ryzen 7000 (“Phoenix”), will likely feature up to four large Zen 5 processor cores with up to eight cores combining Zen is particularly 5c efficient and thus offers a total of 12 cores and 24 threads. The latest information should also reveal clock frequencies, cache, and TDP.

Hybrid APUs with four times Zen 5 and eight times Zen 5c

The “Strix Point” series Ryzen 8000 APUs, which will likely only be listed as “Strix”, like just “Phoenix Point”, should have a cTDP as before with 35 to 54 watts (“H-Series”). ) or 15 to 30 watts (“U Series”) can be rated. Given the hybrid CPU architecture of the ‘next-gen APUs’, based on the more efficient ‘Zen 5’ and ‘Zen 5c’, a lower TDP rating is also conceivable. Screenshots of the so-called “engineering sample” have already confirmed the hybrid architecture to some extent. Information from All_WhatsApp However, it was not known before.
