    Phoronix: Radeon RX 6700 XT "Navy Flounder" Microcode Lands In Linux-Firmware.Git

      • GPUs are all being bought by miners/scalpers
      • AMD isn't selling their APUs directly to consumers
      • If you can find a Zen 3 AMD APU it is still Vega based
      • Intel finally has good integrated graphics with Xe but the beefy 96 EU versions are limited to quad core laptop parts (an updated i5-10600 with a 96 EU Xe iGPU would be interesting if they weren't still totally failing on the fab side and could make it happen)

            I managed to get my hands on a 6700XT, but I seem to be suffering from a corruption bug with OpenGL when using the Navy Flounder firmware and mesa 20.3.4 or mesa-git. Still haven't figured out if it's a firmware/mesa/card problem.
