Traditionaly AMD has worst linux graphics drivers. Much worse than Nvidia and even worst than Intel. They tried to improve them last year, but I cannot say they had much success.

From my experience the Pro drivers are a buggy mess, they were running unstable for me. Just keep your OS up-to-date and it should only get better over time.
As Omega mentions, latest hardware works marvelous with Mesa drivers. In fact, Feral interactive started to prefer this lib over amdgpu-pro in order to test their games for Vulkan. Check some benchs and you'll see that AMD drivers are working very well and gives as much permance as Nvida in most of the games. You totally right about performance.
Yes the g and the g both work fine under linux, to reiterate you will need the latest kernel and latest mesa drivers to get the most out of these apus. If you intend to run it as main rig with no discrete graphics both the g and g are capable of p low vulcan in mad max with a return of 35 fps on the g and 48 fps on the g however they are both much happier at x high on the g will get you to around 50 fps and on the g around 60 fps.
I have Complains of driver issues I think. Dp I need Seems weird older one work, but newer ones don't. I tried following some guides, and they won't work still. Maybe I need Arch, but it's command line stuff and a bit of work and a lot of research. Anyone know of a great guide to get up and going quickly? Last edited by MarkJohnson ; 21 Jun, pm.

How is support doing currently? I'd search your question and add "4. You can test that hardware right now with a live boot of the beta or Ubuntu While I'm not using Mint now, the reason I'm asking is that folks do ask me about computers and Linux every so often.
Mint is my go to distro for folks completely new to Linux as I don't think it is a good idea to spring a Rolling Release distro on newbies. Boy, what a mistake!! I've tried several distro's, Mint being one of them, and it's just impossible to get a stable Linux-based system with the APU.
This works flawless, so it's a Linux issue and I would not recommend anyone to buy these APU's for a Linux build for the near future. It's a proper shame though, since these APU's are a fantastic value for the money.
Linux Mint Guess who's he and who's she.! To be honest I wonder if waiting for B mainboards will be worthwhile. For now I have an expensive box on the shelf, should have gone with team blue instead. It did not cross my mind that the chipset could be a problems with Linux, that I figured out afterwards.
The board may be replaced with a some time later - if I decide to keep the parts at all.Privacy Terms. For help, knowledge, and fellowship. Skip to content. Quick links.

What are my chance of being able to install Mint I know that I probably need to switch immediately to the most recent kernel, which is probably not offer by Mint, but will Mint even let me install itself and what about the new built-in graphic driver?
Anybody has tried it? It's just started RC cycle, so probably looking at weeks until 4. If you want to try sooner, you might need to install Kernels with the Ukuu utility see my sig to get Ubuntu Mainline kernels outside Mint's Update.
My Ryzen is very solid using the 4. But, Vega support started with Kernel 4. Linux Mint I may take the next driver release for this new chip to accept the closed source driver. Have patience they will get there. Me personally, I am waiting to see if they do a 4 core 8 thread version with vega graphics. Or visit viewtopic. Apparently, the motherboard BIOS on the original Ryzen boards might required update to support the new series, or they won't post.
Saw that on my board see sig. It might take awhile for boards to ship with newer BIOS and current stock to sell-off.Ryzen 5 Pro 2400GE Linux Mint 19.1 (Ubuntu 18.04)
Hopefully, new boards will come with something like "Ryzen 2 Ready" on packaging and help this problem. That wouldn't be my first choice. A local retailer, like a MicroCenter, might help with flash update.

The system randomly crashes, seemingly at random: Sometimes the crash is right after a boot; right at the lightdm login screen or right after logging in: the A Half screen Debian x64 is not free xfce. Displayed on the floor of the screen.
Question to you how to solve such problems. Where to see what drivers are used?From most indications in the market, AMD Ryzen has been a relative success. The former has a 3. Before we start this section, we are going to have our value comparison charts as normal.
We get requests for those at every CPU launch. The Ryzen 3 parts are the equivalent to the Intel Xeon Bronze series in the server world. They are essential parts that allow you to light a platform investing in a bare minimum amount of CPU. For desktops, the role is to provide an absolute entry price point to make computing more accessible. If you remember the Ryzen 5 piece where we declared that was the Ryzen 5 to get and likewise with the Ryzen 7you can see why in the above.
Here is what happens when we take Amazon retail pricing as of 27 July Here again, you will notice the Ryzen 7Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 are the best value, but that is taking an extremely narrow view. If you simply want the lowest power and cost system, the Intel Core i3 has an ace up its sleeve with an integrated GPU. We are going to use the same test bed we used for our Ryzen 7 and 5 reviews.
While the motherboard may make sense with the Ryzen 3. We expect most Ryzen 3 users will opt for a B or lower motherboard. We recommend using Ryzen only with Linux kernels 4. Here is the Ubuntu Newer OSes such as Ubuntu If you need an LTS release, be sure to check and upgrade your kernel.
We are using gcc due to its ubiquity as a default compiler. The item to remember here is that any benchmark we are publishing has had at least 10, profiling runs on a multitude of different architectures to ensure we get consistent results before we add it to our repertoire. Due to the desktop nature of Ryzen chips, we are going to present our Linux kernel 4. This is one of the most requested benchmarks for STH over the past few years. The task was simple, we have a standard configuration file, the Linux 4.
We are expressing results in terms of complies per hour to make the results easier to read. Here we are showing a fairly wide spectrum of CPUs. The new Ryzen 3 chips perform well compared to the Intel Core i in this test. We have been using c-ray for our performance testing for years now.Privacy Terms.

Org 1. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. The old Nvidia Geforce 4 MX was actually a Geforce 2 something or another, which was also the same as one of the Quadros of the time. Bit of a con really! Its a difference of cores and not threads. Last edited by Minty00 on Thu Jan 17, pm, edited 1 time in total. Linux Mint Cinnamon Linux Mint Still not sure why it's not Vega 11 graphics. We understand that you have some doubts about the way your system is recognizing the integrated GPU of your Ryzen G processor.
On some occasions the name recognized by a display device on the Operating System is grouped in Series, instead of on actual specific models. AMD does not offer direct driver support for Linux Mint, so unfortunately we have no way of predicting how this OS would recognized the integrated card on your CPU, this would depend on the open-source or kernel drivers being used. We recommend contacting the Linux Mint support for assistance in getting the best possible drivers to use with your system.
For further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again. If you look in the database for my Radeon HD Caicos, it is the general series that it echos. Just wish it would have reflected what it actually is so as not to cause confusion.
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G on Ubuntu 18.04
Should be someway of telling that I have vega 11 graphics specifically.If you boot Ubuntu To boot, you need to select advanced option, then recovery, once you get in the menu with differnt options, select continue. This will boot PC with out hardware acceleration.
But doing this disable hardware acceleration. Proper way is to install AMD drivers. Support for Vega 8 iGPU only available in latest kernel. So you need to install latest kernel from ubuntu mainline.
Find the latest kernel, it will be listed on top of the page. It only lists Windows deivers. I had to use google to find link to latest AMD driver. September 30, This come with Vega 8 iGPU. OpenGL core profile version string : 3. OpenGL core profile shading language version string : 3.
