How to check if my AMD can use AMDGPU driver?

i want to play steam proton but driver Radeon doesn’t support vulkan, so i want to switch to amdgpu driver but does my amd support it and how do i know my amd is (SI) or (CIK) ??


VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Mullins [Radeon R4/R5 Graphics] (rev 45)
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 1c8d
        Kernel driver in use: radeon
        Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu
model           : 48
model name      : AMD A8-7410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics

Yep, just blacklist radeon and amdgpu should be loaded instead.

thanks for answering but is it necessary to configure CIK or SI?

Not sure, can’t really find what GCN architecture is used. Your hardware information is too little, just name the full model instead of just the GPU.

This is?

model           : 48
model name      : AMD A8-7410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics

btw i blacklist radeon, when i reboot its just stuck at Reached Graphical interface
I already tried blacklist radeon, add amdgpu to kernel module and still not loaded

Ok I just found the answer:

so to find out if CIK or SI is run the command sudo dmesg | grep amdgpu

if the output is
[..] amdgpu 0000:01:00.0: Use radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 to override.
it means CIK

after that i just follow this Arch WIki

FYI, we have a package that will automate that called amdgpu-experimental.
