    Well of course they'd get FreeSync HDMI wired up for the Disney Marvel Comic Universe.

      At last working Freesync over HDMI! Outside of Sway, which other wayland manager supports freesync? Has Gnome completed the support work?

        Sway is the only one I know of. In GNOME it's WIP: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutte..._requests/1154

          Hm, this unfortunately doesn't include the i2c fixes necessary for Radeon RX 6000 series from https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/ltuik...-rework-luben/ ... currently I can't use OpenRGB because of this unfortunately. But I'm not sure if it'd go in via this tree.
          agd5f - is it likely that the i2c stuff will go into 5.13?

            Typo: "contention protection" I assume content protection was meant.

              KDE is actively working on it, and trying to convince the gatekeepers if the Wayland protocol that yes, some people want tearing and/or untimed frames.

                  in some ways i kinda wish amd's open drivers where like the way drivers are "normally" on windows. separate from the kernel and can just download the newest ones. always being able to get the bug fixes and new stuff a lot faster. i feel like gpu's are too dynamic with changes and fixes. a lot of those changes and fixes being really important too.

                    You have plenty of options. If on Ubuntu use a ppa, or switch to a rolling distro like Archlinux, or compile them manually. Contrary to popular belief, outside of linuxnext and (mostly early) release candidates, kernels are relatively stable even if brand new.
