AMD’s next-generation Zen 5 CPUs are now submitting code for Linux 6.6 support, with the latest patches including the provision of temperature monitoring and EDAC reporting.
Patches including support for hardware monitor temperature monitoring and EDAC reporting have been added to the latest Linux 6.6 code. Additionally, the new release includes x86 / misc patches that Phoronix says are for assigning PCI device IDs to “Family 1Ah” processors in preparation for future integration into EDAC and k10temp CPU drivers.
In fact, Linux users are so enamoured with the AMD platform that it can now be considered the most popular platform among Linux users, and it already has the lion’s share. Perhaps because of this, AMD is now actively cooperating with the Linux development process, instead of its previous inertia.
In addition, the company has been actively upgrading its RADV Vulkan driver to make Linux a more accessible platform.
AMD Zen 5 processor is expected to be released in 2024, adapted to the AM5 platform, and will bring a series of architectural updates.
