AMD added support for Radeon RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT to Linux drivers

AMD added support for Radeon RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT to Linux drivers
AMD has released updated drivers for Linux OS once again. If earlier they already implemented support for graphics cards on the Navi21 GPU (code name-Sienna Cichlid), that is, Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6900, now the drivers are registered in the literal and figurative sense of the word GPU Navi22 and Navi23.

It is known that Radeon RX 6700 graphics cards are built on the Navi22 GPU (code name Navy Flounder), so the inclusion of this GPU in the drivers can be considered another indication of the upcoming announcement of the RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT. Navi22 is assigned four device IDs: 0x73C0, 0x73C1, 0x73C3 and 0x73DF. But this does not mean that there will be four models: reserving more IDS than they will actually be used, this is a common practice of hardware manufacturers.

The Navi23 GPU (code name Dimgrey Cavefish), which will be used for the future Radeon RX 6600 line, also has four identifiers: 0x73E0, 0x73E1, 0x73E2 and 0x73FF.

There is no information yet on when the Radeon RX 6700 could premiere. The next major AMD event is expected in early January, on the eve of the opening or in the first days of CES 2021. The company is expected to present mobile APU Ryzen 5000 and probably mobile Radeon RX 6700. It is possible that along with mobile GPUs, their desktop versions will be presented.
