  • Updated Vega 20 Firmware Binaries & Other AMDGPU Files Land In Linux-Firmware.Git

    For those habitually riding the bleeding-edge open-source Radeon graphics driver stack, there are some updated firmware files now available for newer AMD graphics processors.

    Hitting Linux-Firmware.Git this morning are updated Vega 20 files for the likes of the Radeon VII, Polaris 12 updates, and updated firmware for the yet-to-debut Picasso APUs. Other generations of AMD Radeon GPUs are unchanged in the linux-firmware tree.

  • Mysterious AMD GPU Benchmark Submission Appears to Be Vega, Not Navi

    While it is hard to tell what exactly this GPU is, if Linux's driver IDs can be trusted, it doesn't appear to be Navi. Even if the GPU is from the Navi lineup, it's hard to glean useful performance data and GPU specifications due to the nature of the CompuBench benchmark. For now, it appears more likely this is just another Vega 20 GPU, perhaps even a new WX Pro series model.

Radeon ROCm 2.2 Released With Vega 20 Optimization

  • Radeon ROCm 2.2 Released With Vega 20 Optimization, Caffe2 Multi-GPU Training

    One month since the release of ROCm 2.1, the Radeon Open Compute stack has now been succeeded by ROCm 2.2.

    The ROCm 2.2 release shipping today comes as a bit of a surprise. It's not the most feature-packed update but does have some nice additions while building on the already exciting ROCm 2.0 that shipped at the end of 2018.

    ROCm 2.2 brings rocSPARSE optimizations for Vega 20 with cache usage improvements, improved DGEMM performance for reduced matrix sizes, and with Caffe2 there is now support for multi-GPU training.
