Blender 3.2 enables AMD GPU rendering on Linux


From the Cycles release notes:

AMD GPU Rendering for Linux has been enabled. Like Windows, this is supported for RDNA and RDNA2 generation discrete graphics cards, which includes Radeon RX 5000 and RX 6000 series, and Radeon Pro W6000 series GPUs.

This currently requires the 22.10 Linux driver from the AMD Radeon repository.

For RDNA1 cards, the drivers have a known bug rendering image textures with certain resolutions, where the width is not a multiple of 128. We recommend using typical texture resolutions like 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 as a workaround, until the driver bug is fixed.

An overview of the new features and improvements in the Blender 3.2 release can be found on the Blender website:
