Driver patch brings TrueAudio support for Raphael

AMD has released patches that will allow upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors to use the integrated audio co-processor (ACP) and thus TrueAudio. However, it is not yet clear if the patches will be applied before the new CPUs are released.

Based on the current state of knowledge, it won’t be long before AMD releases the first Ryzen 7000 processors. The last one was from one Premiere on September 15 the speech in which AMD plans to launch the codenamed Raphael desktop processors.

Patch brings ACP support

In addition to the usual innovations such as a revised CPU architecture, a modified manufacturing process and the use of the new AM5 socket, there will also be a conceptual change with the Ryzen 7000 processors. In the IO chiplet there should also be a GPU for the first time, which is based on the RDNA2 architecture and is expected to be more 128 shaders available becomes As a result, all future AMD processors will probably be suitable for simple graphics applications and will of course also have corresponding codec support.

Apparently AMD’s hardware audio technology is also included TrueAudio: According to Phoronix, AMD has recently shipped five Linux driver patches that use the built-in Raphael. audio coprocessors (ACP) must be enabled. This in turn is used for speeding up sound calculations implemented with TrueAudio. AMD seems to want to continue supporting TrueAudio, at least for now, even if it was for the current version, TrueAudio Next, according to AMD’s Github project. no updates for two years it gave.

Even if it will still be a few weeks before the Ryzen 7000 processors are released, it is initially unclear whether the audio feature can actually be used for the Raphael generation launch. Due to the late release of patches, they may only be released with the Linux 6.0 kernel and not the upcoming 5.20 version.
