The RDNA2 integrated graphics were not only working under Linux, but they were working very well... In some cases like the DDraceNetwork platformer game, the Radeon 680M graphics were well ahead of not only the prior Radeon Vega graphics but also the Intel Xe Graphics found with the Core i7 1280P Alder Lake SoC.

Across both OpenGL and Vulkan workloads the Radeon 680M graphics were performing very well on the latest open-source drivers. For those interested in the Radeon 680M potential for Linux gaming, a follow-up article will look much more closely at the 680M gaming performance... These are just some basic graphics tests for this article with mostly focusing on the Ryzen 7 PRO 6850U Linux CPU performance today.
