Radeon RX Vega 11

Postby metaquarx » Wed Mar 18, 2020 2:18 am

Request to add Radeom RX Vega 11 to the whitelist of gpus.

This is the successor to the Vega 8, which is already whitelisted. It seems the Vega 11 is automatically "downgraded" to a Vega 8 in fahcontrol? huh.

Code: Select all

AMD reuses device ID's a lot across different products. So if your Vega 11 is recognized by the client, that is based on the ID number read a tconfiguration time. The description part of the entry is purely cosmetic and not used by the client for more than display. The entry in the GPUs.txt file is usually based on the first report of a new device ID we get, sometimes when one of the maintainers gets a chance they will modify the description to reflect that more than one GPU is referred to by that ID.

The manufacturers generally assign a unique device identifier no matter what the hardwre differences ... more VRAM, more shaders, different manufacturing technology, Even different assigned clock rate ("binning") FAH always enables GPUs by their hardware ID.
On the other hand, both AMD and nVidia do give new public names to the exact same hardware. Here's an example:

AMD:5 Ellesmere XT [Radeon RX 470/480/570/580]

FACT: The human readable portion between the [...]s doesn't change how FAH works with the device.

0x15dd / Raven [Ryzen vega 8 mobile] is already in the list of supported GPUs.
