AMD’s Van Gogh APU gets new audio technology

AMD’s mysterious “Van Gogh” APU is expected to provide a number of major improvements over its predecessors, among which the graphics core based on RDNA 2 and DDR5/LPDDR5 may be the most important advances. It now appears that the new APU will also have a new audio processing block.

AMD has Post 12 patches for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) driver to support the upcoming Van Gogh APU, report FronixThe patch shows that Van Gogh will use AMD’s new audio co-processor-ACP 5.x-with two I2S interfaces/controllers. Since there is no mention of AMD’s ACP 5.x blocks that we can find before, it seems that Van Gogh APU will be the company’s first platform to support new audio technologies (at least on Linux).
