    Phoronix: AMD Ryzen 5 3400G Is Working Well On Linux

    AMD Raven Ridge APUs were a rough launch particularly on Linux where even with the latest motherboard BIOS updates and Linux kernel I am still hitting occasional stability issues, so when the opportunity arose recently to try out the Ryzen 5 3400G as the successor in the Picasso family, I was interested. Fortunately, AMD Picasso APUs have proven to be in better shape on Linux so here is the initial round of performance tests for those interested in the AMD Linux performance on Ubuntu.

    apologies if I'm resurrecting the thread..
    But I have a ryzen 3400G on linux mint 19.0 (Kernel 5.0.0 - 32) and I don't get anywhere near the frame rates this article gives.
    Newer kernels cause graphics errors (noise and horizontal lines in the Desktop) .
    What can I do to find out what's wrong?

    Just saw this piece regarding Ryzen APU's:

    Other changes in this "fixes" pull request include two stability regression fixes for Raven Ridge APUs, which end up disabling S/G and GFXOFF for those Zen+Vega APUs. S/G apparently is still causing problems when IOMMU is enabled for some systems while the GFXOFF power-savings functionality still also has its own set of problems with select board/firmware combinations.
    from this article Mick just posted. So if you did have problems, there's a workaround for a GFX issue in the latest kernel. Not a fix, but hey, it's working for now.

    Gigabyte I am/was using

    Ryzen 3200G (but the Ryzen 2200G ran perfectly fine as well, despite being a RMA)
    16 and 32GB RAM (cant remember the brands, but they're named)
    B450 I AORUS PRO WIFI
    ASUS ROG Strix B450-I
    Both running NVME drives (250GB and 1TB Intel), and HDD's (everything from 1TB to 8TB)

    Linux Mint and Manjaro (KDE) both ran perfectly fine, EXCEPT Manjaro XFCE which had some serious graphical issues crop up recently when I was just fiddling around.

    This is an awesome article with valuable information. And it is especially the title of the article along with the quoted paragraph what makes me happy.

    To much pleasure, the Ryzen 5 3400G hasn't caused me any grief in testing on Linux over the past few weeks. Even when using the same motherboards/firmware and Linux software components, this Picasso APU has behaved fine without any stability problems or other headaches.
    I still would have two questions:
    1) Can I assume that Ryzen 3 3200G would behave equally fine on Linux? After all, they are very close siblings. 🙂
    2) If you have any experience with using Ryzen 3 3200G on Linux, please post it here. You can also write what MB & RAM & distro you'are using. I believe there are lot of users, who would appreciate such info.

    Many thanks in advance.

    It was traditionally, but clearly something's happened recently.

    oibaf and padoka both have their places; oibaf was lastest stable generally compared to padoka's eye's-bleeding edgey drivers. Regardless, they're both about the very best of the latest over rock-solid 'I'm an old man in a Toyota Camry' stability.
    ...oh yes you are right i was mixing up top notch with bleeding edge ... both repos have top notch quality. In the past I have had the impression that padoka is like oibaff but uses newer code.

    So did I until I checked the date-stamps and versions against each other; and to reinforce that point, I've been getting graphics updates constantly from oibaf since I changed over. Regardless, my Borderlands is running smoother (probably about the best game I have that's easy to play test in my Steam library that will utilise and work nice with a 2200G) since the changeover. And about to test a 5.2 kernel over the standard 5.0.
