AMD RDNA 4 & RDNA 3+ GPUs Receive Updated Support In Linux Graphics Drivers

AMD has added new patches and support for its upcoming. rDNA 4 And RDNA 3+ GPUs Inside the latest Linux graphics drivers.

AMD is set to provide expanded support for future graphics lineups, including RDNA 3+ and RDNA 4 for Radeon GPUs.

AMD's work to support future products on Linux has increased significantly, especially towards their upcoming RDNA 4 and RDNA 3+ graphics architectures. The firm adopts an IP blocks approach, and in its view, Development is still ongoing. Based on this preparation, we expect to have maximum support for next-generation GPUs at launch.

Phronics reports that AMD has released a major AMDGPU and AMDKFD kernel driver patch that brings several enhancements integrated before Linux 6.10. New features include upgrades to the IP blocks targeted for the RDNA 3+ and RDNA 4 GPU architectures, indicating that Team Red is proactive when enabling next-generation products. Below is the changelog, which shows the complete changes with the new update:
