TI AM62 Open Source AXE-1-16M GPU driver

we are about to developing a device with the TI AM625 having the AXE-1-16M GPU on board, wich will run a Qt application.

So therefore it would be nice to get some information about the mesa driver.
According to this post PowerVR Open-Source Vulkan Driver Adds Support For The TI AM62 SoC - Phoronix, i asume it is mainline since Mesa 22.2, am i right?
It also says that its still work in progress, do you might be able to give me some imformation about the current status? known bugs/limitations or so on?

I have also seen that there is some work going on for the kernel mode driver, any informations on this? is it about to go mainline?

best regards


Yes, that article is correct and our open-source drivers were up-streamed to Mesa 22. As you can see from the Mesa repository, there is constant activity making the drivers better. This includes improving the robustness of the kernel mode drivers, better support for compute and full conformance. As you say, it is still work in progress. Sadly I cannot give you more details beyond what is in the public domain.

Best regards.


hi carlos,
thank you for your reply.

so if i understand it right and to sum it up real quick, the driver is ready to use for the TI AM625
and some improvement are about to come. right?

best regards.


Yes, you should be able to use those drivers on the TI AM625 if you are not very demanding :slightly_smiling_face:
