AMD users should immediately switch to the latest Linux 5.11 kernel
The latest release of the Linux kernel features some impressive performance enhancements for AMD hardware.
Released over the valentine’s day weekend, Linux kernel 5.11 fixed a major performance regression that impacted the AMD Zen architecture. Thanks to the fix, Zen-based processors such as Ryzen and EPYC have been benchmarked as being faster out of the box than on previous kernels. Also debuting in the release is support for AMD “Van Gogh” and “Dimgrey Cavefish” GPUs.
Anybody with a before/after benchmark? I will see if I can make one
