    Phoronix: Sienna Cichlid Support For RadeonSI Merged Into Mesa 20.2

    The previously reported on Sienna Cichlid support for AMD's RadeonSI OpenGL driver has finished its quick review process and now merged for Mesa 20.2...

    Hmm...
    Waiting for RADV support so I can play games with Lutris, Steam and DXVK.

    But of course disappointed that the support will come late again.

      Also LLVM 11 is needed for Sienna Chichlid support.

        I guess it depends what you mean by support, the code is there for you to use now, the cards aren't out yet. Whilst it won't work out the box with current distros, it shouldn't be too hard to enable. Rolling distros should be fine

        Gentoo here and I'm already booting the code from agf5d's branch and the git code from mesa master.

          Well, it's a matter of AMD choosing to work on AMDVLK rather than RADV, who are you going to be disappointed in?

            Basically it's earlier than windows support, there is no windows driver yet! It's just the way the linux ecosystem parts are developed and distributed that take some time, while in fact it's not really slow at all...

              Dude, you don't own a "Sienna Cichlid" gpu yet.

                The official Vulkan support with AMDVLK will also presumably come soon but then again we have seen delays happen with that driver at times.
                But why? Author, what makes you think that?
                There is still a lot of time before the release of video cards.

                  We haven't even announced the product yet let alone shipped it, so presumably you work for AMD with access to an engineering sample ?

                  If so we can set you up with internal trees.

                    I just hope I don't have to read "Sienna Cichlid " too much more.
