      Cool. Testing right now and well system is kind of faster in some cases (Ryzen 5 2500U (Raven Ridge) + RX560X). Will test some games.

        On the Radeon GPU firmware side is SMC firmware and MC firmware needed for properly initializing the Radeon RX 590. These firmware blobs plus what will be Linux 4.20 or newer

          What about Vega 11? Will this affect it also?

            Previous microcode_amd_fam17h.bin contained microcode for a single proc_id only:
            Code:
            [   44.114428] microcode: verify_and_add_patch: Added patch_id: 0x08001227, proc_id: 0x8012
            The updated microcode_amd_fam17h.bin just adds microcode for another proc_id:
            Code:
            [   44.127941] microcode: verify_and_add_patch: Added patch_id: 0x08001227, proc_id: 0x8012
            [   44.127948] microcode: verify_and_add_patch: Added patch_id: 0x0800820b, proc_id: 0x8082
            (microcode for 0x8012 hasn't changed).

                I guess I can finally give up the hope for Vulkan and video acceleration at the same time for GCN1.0. What a shame for an architecture that still got new GPU releases in 2014. That was the last information I had https://www.spinics.net/lists/amd-gfx/msg13826.html

                Is it ok to send Christian König an email asking if it's burried for good?

                  As long as it isn't rude or angry at him, yeah sure.

                    Anyone else having issues with this ?

                    kernel-firmware-20181215_211de16-noarch-1 don't work, kernel-firmware-20181026_1baa348-noarch-1 works
                    it starts booting then the screen goes black and it enters some kind of power cycle loop

                    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
                    Vega FE
