How good is the support on Manjaro KDE for AMD+radeon laptops?

Had my eye on Dell G5 SE (ryzen 5 4800H and rx 5600m 90watt). Reviews said that it had poor thermals.
Then Dell announced a new version of G5, which looks to have an upgraded thermal solution based on alienware laptops.
I wanna now if anybody in the community has used G5 SE and if they are still facing problems.

I don’t wanna switch from Manjaro KDE, as I have found this distribution to be one of the easiest to work with.

Thank You!


Altho I’ve never used this device, a small post on the subject: The method I use to get info on hardware is looking at the arch wiki, there is a page on the arch wiki about this machine.

A quick look at the linux database shows no real issues: for this type of machine (for this one entry in the database)

Hope this helps with your search and when you buy something and run linux on it, sending the results to helps us all :slight_smile:

Pretty much as good as it is on other distro, as it is a kernel thing about support.

Not because you have to worry about support in manjaro KDE on AMD + Radeon processors.

If it were really worrying I should have a horror of Linux, because I only use Linux and, for a long time and nowadays on a PC that the horror in this subject could very well scare me:

T + = See you later

I have a Lenovo Ideapad and this is what happens with Manjaro and XFCE (KDE is the same, I want to switch to KDE but I have too much problems like beeps coming from the motherboard when I hit a key on the keyboard and brightness problems)

I even can’t have GUI on recent version of Debian because of the graphics drivers (I suppose because Debian 9 works almost fine, I have a GUI but other problems)
