AMD Pro W7xxx series is out folks!
« on: August 04, 2023, 07:29:22 pm »
The RDNA3-based Pro mid range GPU from AMD has been announced.

Both W7500 and W7600 can do AV1 encode/decode and are certified to run pro apps.

I am eyeing the W7500 as it does not require additional power draw. Plus it is a single slot
profile so it might just fit it my tight computer case.

The only thing I am unsure is how well amdgpu in Linux 6.4 or 6.5 supports Navi 33

Even if amd64 amdgpu supports it, ppc64le might not. That was a big problem with Navi 2x, and even after 23 was enabled 22 and 21 weren't necessarily, at least not in 2022 they weren't -- they might be now. Still, it seems pretty exciting and I bet both are a good experience. Love how powerful they both are for a single slot card, though, and hopefully there's even a 7-class card in single slot one day.

yeah i'd like to get the w7600. Should be good enough for the few games that can run on POWER

It’s a step up from the RX 6600, which has been a rock star in ppc64le since kernel 6.1. Until somebody takes a gamble on RNDA3 on the platform I guess this will remain a mystery.

Elsewhere, I wonder when Intel’s xe driver will be mainlined…

Why a W7600 and not a RX7600XT?

I’d guess lower power requirements, better binned silicon, and less likelihood of firmware gremlins. That’s been my experience - it can be a roll of the dice with some consumer cards. I had a Sapphire RX 6600 that flat out wouldn’t run stably in ppc64le and had visual artifacts, but an XFX card’s been running without issue or incident for me since kernel 6.1.

this and single slot, blower cooler, and looks better and well not much point of a new gamer card imo.

Which XFX card specifically?

The XFX Speedster SWFT 210 RX 6600. It’s been perfect since kernel 6.1; I haven’t run into any problems at all.

Tangentially, I wonder if Q66 or anyone else ever dealt with regressions noted in RDNA1/RX 5x00 series hardware as of kernel 5.17...

What kind of regressions?
I do have regressions. But these do not interfere further.

He mentioned it over on the dead bird site, some kind of kernel data structure corruption. I don't have the Radeon Pro W5500 I originally used in this machine or I'd toss it in and give it a try.

Hey, you found it. Appears it's a non-issue now, which is great news.
