In the first 100 patches released, the first Vega support was based on the GFX9 architecture, which is very different to GFX8 - or the Polaris architecture. The new architecture required around 40,000 new lines of code, something that included: "new video BIOS interface, new hardware intellectual property, support for video decode using UVD (UVD 7.0), support for video encode using VCE (VCE 4.0), support for 3D via RadeonSI, power management, full display support using DC, and support for SR-IOV virtualization".

The new patches include 7 new Vega IDs, which will include Radeon Instinct and Radeon PRO products based on the Vega architecture. As for the IDs, this is what we have:

  • {0x1002, 0x6860, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
