This is squarely a data center product, but I'd imagine this also means that they've got an ARM driver for their GPUs. Maybe this could eventually lead to a mainstream Linux ARM driver, as a complete guess they might have the most difficult problems solved by now.


Not that it would be useful in 2021 but could be a pretty fun system to experiment with.

I just hope they got a Linux GPU drivers working. Pretty much the only area AMD beats them on with software lol

What's wrong with them? I've been running them for years, without issues. They're as solid as the Windows counter part. Recently returned to Linux again and after installing dkms, the upgrades are seamless.

Radeon drivers are open source but are less stable (especially for newer hardware) and also lack features (freesync, hdmi audio other than PCM for example).

Nvidia are stubborn for sure (most recent case being EGLstreams vs. GBM) but so much of their business is in the data center nowadays that they do take serious care about their drivers.

They do already have a public Linux ARM Display driver for use with Raspberry Pi and such.
