    Phoronix: AMD Lands New GPU Firmware Binaries In Linux-Firmware.Git

    AMD landed several new GPU firmware binaries into the linux-firmware.git repository this morning for unreleased hardware...

    Now that the AMD Ryzen 7000 series desktop have an iGPU (while being kneecapped in the PCIe department), let's hope the main stream mobo manufacturers will offer good PCIe bifurcation options on that x16 slot for usage with non-graphics cards, e.g two x8 one for a storage card and one for a high-bandwidth network card. I'm not holding my breath, both INTEL and AMD used and use the nb of PCIe lanes to segment their processor markets. Most recent victim: the non-Pro Threadripper.

      It would be nice to have some tool or site that converts these blocks numbers into list of hardware that they affect.

      bridgman pointed out (see here), that some of that is referenced here as chip to block matching (i.e. the other way), but it's not a complete list:

        Don't the "SLI/Crossfire capable" boards already do that though? Those support x16/x0 and x8/x8 on top two x16 slots. Sure, they're not the cheapest boards out there, much cheaper than Threadripper stuff though.

          I have a question. Michael posits Linux 5.18 for integrated graphics support, but which kernel is required for general CPU? I saw a leak early in the year claiming a Zen 4 part on a generic Ubuntu 5.15 kernel, but I haven't read anything official. If you purchase Zen 4, what will you need software side?
