AMD Lands Open-Source "Hawaii" GPU Driver Code


Another Git branch merge happened this morning of Radeon DRM driver code into drm-next. The prominent work now pushed into drm-next for merging into the mainline Linux kernel tree in the days ahead is Hawaii GPU support!

AMD's Alex Deucher wrote, "A few more patches for 3.13. The big one here is Hawaii support. I wanted to get that out sooner, but was sick earlier this week. That said, it's mostly self contained, so it shouldn't impact other asics. The rest are just bug fixes and a merge fix."

The PCI IDs that have been added as the initially supported AMD Hawaii graphics cards include 0x67A0, 0x67A1, 0x67A2, 0x67A8, 0x67A9, 0x67AA, 0x67B0, 0x67B1, 0x67B8, 0x67B9, 0x67BA, and 0x67BE. This Hawaii GPU support is for the new, original graphics processors (R9 290 and R9 290X) of the Rx 200 series family and not the GPUs that were simply re-badged from the Radeon HD 7000 series.
