Intel hits a new milestone with the Iris Xe "DG1" desktop graphics

Quoting: Phlebiac
Quoting: pete910Ironically its AMD's IP that they are using.

Intel made some processors with integrated AMD GPUs on them, but I'm pretty sure "DG1" has nothing to do with AMD IP. Do you have any evidence otherwise?
Could well have been for that tbh. However they would need either Nvidia's IP or AMD's to make a modern Graphics card

Quoting: LinasMore options are great, but somehow I feel this will be used to tackle AMD, and NVIDIA will remain unchallenged.

Both will remain unchallenged for a while to be honest, Ironically its AMD's IP that they are using.

meehhh they kicked the AMD sensor thingy (k10temp) out of kernel 5.10 because a lack of documentation. now some values are useless and i have to stick with kernel 5.9
Well that's not quite the whole truth. The module exists and still reports temperatures, but the reason it doesn't report voltage and current any more is not just about the documentation. Here's the relevant commit message:

QuoteVoltages and current are reported by Zen CPUs. However, the means
to do so is undocumented, changes from CPU to CPU, and the raw data
is not calibrated. Calibration information is available, but again
not documented. This results in less than perfect user experience,
up to concerns that loading the driver might possibly damage
the hardware (by reporting out-of range voltages). Effectively
support for reporting voltages and current is not maintainable.
Drop it.

If there's code in the kernel that might risk damaging your hardware (or simply provides unreliable data), I'd say removing it is a good decision.


i dont think linus wanted to kick it out so my point still stands. its AMDs fault

Linux wants or not wants anything, This was down to one mans decision, Linus !

Is it AMD's fault? Partly I agree, but not solely.

Make it so I could actually buy a damn card would be a good idea first!
