THE NEW LINUX KERNEL 5.11 BRINGS IMPROVEMENTS FOR AMD AND INTEL

Kernel 5.11
The NEW LINUX KERNEL 5.11 RELEASED

The latest version of kernel Linux 5.11 is called the "Valentine's Day Edition." And it has been a gift for users of AMD processors, since the latest version of the kernel Linux features some impressive performance improvements for AMD hardware.

Released over Valentine's weekend, the Linux 5.11 kernel has fixed a major performance regression affecting the architecture Zen of AMD. Thanks to this fix, processors based on Zen, as Ryzen Y EPYC, they have been evaluated as faster from the beginning than with the previous cores. This release also includes support for AMD GPUs "Van Gogh" Y "Dimgrey cavefish«.

AMD, the semiconductor company, has recently posted several Linux-related job postings, and AMD's hardware enhancements in the latest version are further proof that the chip giant is actively working to improve its support. hardware on Linux.

Aside from AMD related improvements, the latest version also features many Intel hardware related improvements. Some of the most prominent are support for the security-related instruction code set known as Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) and graphics support Intel Integer Scaling (IS), especially useful for games of Pixel art.

There is also support for wireless routers that feature support for Intel's WiFi 6GHz (WiFi 6E) band. At the same time, support for Intel WiMax has been downgraded and is destined to meet the same fate as the recently terminated support for Itanium.

As usual, there are other tweaks and improvements for everything from file system improvements to bug fixes in the Xen hypervisor.

You can download the version and compile it yourself or wait for it to arrive through the official channels at Deepin. Too there are utilities to make the process easier, however unless you have an imperative need and also know very well what you are doing, we do not recommend installing such new kernel versions until their stability has been tested.

Good thing, hopefully my ignition improves, I have an AMD R7 laptop and sometimes when I turn it on without the charger on, the startup fails, it appears as if the video is not right (static) and I have to turn it off the hard way. Will this new kernel solve this for me? because the rest runs wonderfully.
