AMD Patches Linux for RDNA 4 GPUs, Hinting at a Possible Arrival of RX 8000-Series Graphics Cards in 2024


Share post:

AMD has released new patches for the AMDGPU Linux kernel graphics driver, enabling some IP blocks that presumably belong to graphics processors based on the company’s next-generation RDNA 4 architecture.

Each IP block, ATHUB, LSDMA, IH, and HDP, is crucial for the operation of a graphics processor. These updates suggest that AMD follows a component-by-component strategy for updating its open-source Linux graphics driver for new GPU architectures.

The substantial version updates for these IP blocks strongly suggest their association with the RDNA 4 graphics architecture rather than further enhancements to the RDNA 3 series.
