AMD ROCm 5.4.2 Released As Another Small Update To The Compute Stack

Written by Michael Larabel in Radeon on 14 January 2023 at 06:44 AM EST. 14 Comments
ROCm 5.4 released in November with a point release then coming out in December and now there is another minor update for January to this open-source AMD Linux GPU compute stack.

Sadly, as is all too often the case for AMD point releases, there aren't any accompanying change-log that specifically outlines what has been changed with this minor revision.

The new 5.4.2 documentation doesn't provide any change-log or any substantive difference over the earlier 5.4 updates.

RHEL/CentOS 8 and 9, SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP4, and Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS / Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS remain the supported Linux distributions by the Radeon Open eCosystem stack.

The officially supported hardware by ROCm remains the Radeon Instinct MI50/MI60, Radeon VII, Radeon Pro VII, Radeon Pro W6800 series, Radeon Pro V620, and Instinct MI100/MI200 hardware. There's nothing to report yet on official RDNA3 support for ROCm.
