Seventeen New AMD PCI IDs Added to Linux Driver, May Include 6-Nanometer Refreshes

AMD has announced a list of new PCI IDs that will be available in the Linux kernel in June, which will include a number of new PCI IDs for their upcoming graphics cards. The new PCI IDs include two new PCI IDs for AMD’s upcoming 7nm GPUs, as well as a number of new PCI IDs for their existing GPUs.

The Linux kernel has a long history of supporting new hardware, and it just got a few new PCI IDs that have been submitted to the Linux 3.12 kernel.

At the end of the summer or early autumn, AMD and NVIDIA often announce new graphics card models or refreshes. They’ve already announced new models for 2020 and 2021, so anticipate updates or new variations. GreyMoon55, a well-known leaker, has been providing intriguing information for both manufacturers. In a Linux driver, seventeen new AMD PCI IDs were discovered, including a number of undisclosed GPUs.

There are 32 PCI IDs total, however 17 seem to be new GPU versions. Sienna Cichlid (Navi 21) has five new species, Navy Flounder (Navi 22) has five new species, and Dimgrey Cavefish (Navi 23) has seven new species. It’s unclear if any of these will be refreshed, but it’s very likely that at least a few will. It’s also possible that at least one of these mysterious GPUs is the yet-to-be-released Navi 24.

AMD’s Navi 22, 23, and 24 GPUs were rumored to be getting an upgrade. The latter has yet to be published, and it is unknown when we may anticipate it. AMD’s Navi 23 GPU was recently introduced to the current product line. Both the Radeon consumer and Radeon workstation SKUs, as well as their mobile versions, are now available.

The patch includes not only the Navi 22 and 23, but also the Navi 21 Sienna Cichlid. This GPU was not anticipated to be updated since it is said to have the same number of cores as Navi 33. (5120 SPs). From the standpoint of marketing and product segmentation, this would be a poor choice.
