    Phoronix: AMDGPU Changes Begin Queueing Ahead Of Linux 5.1 Kernel Cycle

    The drm-next-5.1-wip branch has been created by open-source AMD developers as they begin vetting the changes they plan to submit to DRM-Next for inclusion in the Linux 5.1 kernel cycle when it kicks off around the start of March...

    An interrupt handler (IH) overflow fix for Vega 10 that takes care of a random system lockup. The issue is most reproducible on Vega 10 but also may affect earlier generations too.
    This is quite a serious bug. Will it be backported to earlier kernels?

      where are the freesync2 HDR patches?

        Can't you just troll somewhere else?

        And to add at least a little sense to my own post: HDR doesn't "slow down FPS" because every modern game is running a HDR pipeline already.

          Because if something is open so that even crazy troll like you could see it, that that does not mean it is ready for everybody

          Releases and particulary point releases are for general public

          General public defined by average Joe wanna point releases, capisco?

            Fu**ing finally!

            Edit:
            And can we have this please backported?

              Very few of them are Linux native.
              https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/201...-hdr-pc-games/

              By the way, shadow of the tomb raider is damn slow with wine-staging and dxvk. It is the slowest of tomb raider games. And not even freesync support in RADV.
              So what? Most games aren't Linux native. At least if all the bits and pieces are in place for the driver, Wine, and DXVK then we might get HDR/Freesync for non-native games eventually.

              The rest of us see hope for the future and you're just peeing in our Cheerios.

                I wasn't aware of an AMD based GPU that had ray tracing...

                To give you an answer: Yes, we do need those techniques.

                Why do we need them? Because having options is nice.

                Don't want it, don't enable it. Simple as that.

                  Stop trolling indeed. Is there ignore button here?

                    ...and everyone else asking for backports.

                    See guys? This is one area where proprietary drivers are better than in-kernel drivers, Nvidia's blob included. They are independent and can be updated independently no need for a fucking backport or updating the entire god damn kernel.

                    But no, people will keep on and on about nonsense in other threads about it.
