AMD has recently posted a new open source Linux driver code that enables Audio Co-Processing (ACP) on the upcoming Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” desktop CPUs. While the ACP support is good news, the bad news is that it will have a later go-live date.
AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” desktop CPUs will be released soon. This desktop Zen 4 processor has increased support for Linux. This new ACP audio driver code is necessary for users who rely on ACP audio.
In the recent 5 patch releases, it was indicated in the header file and other patches that the AMD SoC ACP Linux driver would be integrated for the Raphael “RPL” platform. The merge window for Linux 5.20 opened a week ago, so it is unclear if the code will be integrated. If this integration is missed, it will be done in Linux 6.0 later this year.
