Radeon HD 7750 Cape Verde?

Good morning or good night to all. I have a question regarding my video card. I would like to know if it has support for the amdgpu driver or not. The drive that was installed by Manjaro is the radeon. The problem is that this driver has a problem with the steam vulkan, some games that depend on the vulkan do not open. I looked for information on the internet, but it is a salad of mismatched things, some places say that the Radeon HD 7750 Cape Verde has amdgpu support, others say that it does not. I don’t know what to do. If you need a command to show my hardware, just talk. I’m not new to Linux, but my knowledge is very limited. I apologize for the google translation.

Thanks! A 2015 drive shouldn’t help much on a 2021 linux. My question is whether this blessed card supports amdgpu in 2021.


Try to check like this:

mhwd -li -d
This will check the drivers you have installed

mhwd -la
Listing all the drivers that may or may not be appropriate for your system is simple. But be careful because this command lists all available drivers.

I hope I’m being useful in some way

Let’s try to kill the snake and show the stick

Do like this

lspci -k | grep radeon


lspci -k | grep amdgpu

Some models of Radeon HD 7000, HD 8000, R5, R7 and R9 series cards are compatible with both drivers, however, support for the ‘Amdgpu’ in these models is experimental, so the ‘Radeon’ driver is what comes enabled by default.

T+ = See you later

$ lspci -k | grep radeon
Kernel driver in use: radeon
Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu

$ lspci -k | grep amdgpu
Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu

amdgpu has experimental support for this GPU, which is disabled by default. The easiest way to enable it is installing amdgpu-experimental package.

Ok, but what is the procedure to install this package? Do I simply install and restart the system?

I installed the package that was recommended (amdgpu-experimental). I restarted the system, so far everything is ok. One of the improvements with amdgpu drive, is that now I can see the login screen, with the drive radeon the login screen was black, I had to type the password in the dark, as the cursor is already positioned I could type without seeing until then. Regarding games that require vulkan, I haven’t tested it yet, as soon as I tested it I post the results. Thanks to those who helped me, even if the package will present a problem in the future, I had to try. Because the system was incomplete without full use of the GPU hardware.
