    Phoronix: AMD Renoir Temperature Monitoring To Come With Linux 5.8

    When it comes to the support for AMD Ryzen 4000 "Renoir" laptop support under Linux, as outlined in my testing so far this month the main caveat is needing Linux 5.6~5.7 for good graphics support but on the likes of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with Linux 5.4 you will not have GPU acceleration. At least in the case of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 I have been using to test, you also need Linux 5.7 Git for battery sensor support. Another item that in turn is coming with Linux 5.8 is CPU temperature reporting for the Renoir processors...

    Ubuntu 20.04 is Nvidia only Distro ... Fedora 32 works perfect with AMD hardware...

    ubuntu only use outdated files to make it compatible with Nvidia.

      I will never let my PC see your message. It obviously doesn't know this and works perfectly well with my AMD hardware.

          Yeah, because LTS point releases or even mainline kernel PPA's don't exist...

            Fedora is a toy distro that requires an extremely breakage-prone update every 6 months. It's also heavily optimized towards beta testing RHEL. You're better off using a distro that optimizes for the user's benefit rather than Red Hat's.

              What about Fedora 31 with no updates though? It is using outdated files that only makes it compatible with Nvidia and outdated AMD hardware. Fedora 31 is Nvidia only Distro ... Ubuntu 20.10 will work perfect with AMD hardware... (or you know 20.04 with updates if you're not interested in LTS kernel, alternatively one can wait until next HWE update)

                Your information is outdated for decade as the current iteration of Fedora notably Workstation version is steady , cutting edge and mostly stable on daily basis. As mentioned before, your mileage will vary depending of the hardware. The fact Lenovo now provide their hardware with Fedora already challenged the assertion of "toy distro".
                Users including greatly benefit using Fedora with the gradual transition to Wayland, Pipewire which aims at unifying both Jack Audio and Pulseaudio among latest technologies.

                  No, I was a Fedora user (and packager) within the last decade. It's absolute junk compared to many other distros.

                    Time has change since then hence your outdated information.
