AMD provides ray tracing support for open source Vulcan graphics drivers for RDNA 2 GPUs on Linux

Last week, the AMD Vulkan graphics driver, AMDVLK GPU unlockedadded support for 64-bit ray tracing for Radeon RX 6000 GPUs. This includes desktop / mobile GPUs and APUs using RDNA 2 graphics architecture. All AMD Vulkan drivers on all platforms now support Mesa3D RADV, AMDVLK GPUOpen and AMDGPU-PRO Hardware ray tracing.

AMDVLK GPUOpen, AMD Open Source Vulcan driver, supports hardware ray tracing for RDNA 2 GPUs on Linux

The new updates include GPUs ray tracing A library, or GPURT, that contains the generation and sequencing of the finite dimension hierarchy (BVH) in ray tracing using shaders such as HLSL. This library will allow a standard library to allow for greater consistency and improve graphical rendering. The new library will be compatible with DirectX 12 DXR.

GPU ray tracking (GPURT) as “a standard (delivery source) library that provides ray tracing functionality for AMD drivers that support DXR (DirectX 12) and Vulkan® RT API”. This library is based on the company’s Platform Abstraction Library (PAL).

The GPURT library uses the C ++ interface as a basis. The public interface is split into different header files based on their dependencies and usage. Users interested in getting complete information about the RDNA 2 GPU Ray Tracing Library (GPURT), along with build details, can learn more on the official GitHub page.

Here is the information about the new AMDVLKOpen v-2022.Q3.4 GPU update:

New features and improvements

  • Add support for 64-bit ray tracing to Navi2x
  • Update Vulkan headers to 1.3.225
  • Performance Optimization for Games: World War Z, Ashes of the Singularity

The problem is right

  • CTS failed for the new version in dEQP-VK.api.copy_and_blit..resolve_image.whole_copy_before_resolving_transfer.
  • CTS warning in dEQP-VK.pipeline.creation_cache_control. *
  • VulcanInfo crashes with pipeline cache disabled
  • The RGP test tool fails on the RX 6800
  • Firefox corruption on Ubuntu 22.04

Interested users can find installation instructions to install the latest update for AMDVLK GPUOpen v-2022.Q3.4 here. Users should back up all relevant data to avoid losing essential files during updates, such as installing new software, hardware or drivers.

Preparations for the new Linux driver have been in full swing in recent months in preparation for AMD, Intel and NVIDIA technologies released earlier this year.
