It's always lovely seeing AMD talking up GPUOpen and their open-source efforts at large. "Commitment to open-source software" certainly isn't something NVIDIA can honestly advertise at this point.

There's nothing new to report on the Radeon Software control center / control panel prospects for Linux gamers.

The AV1 encode support with the RDNA3 GPUs should ultimately work with the Mesa Gallium3D video acceleration state tracker support.

Those are the key highlights of AMD RDNA3 from today's embargo technology lift. Stay tuned for December to see how well the Radeon RX 7900 series perform under Linux for gaming on AMD's fully open-source and upstream driver stack as well as with the likes of the Radeon Software for Linux packaged driver. As I have been covering for months, AMD has been push out a lot of RDNA3 open-source driver code and aiming to square things away for another successful GPU launch with timely Linux support.
