Linux 6.11 is receiving assistance for separate Intel Battlemage GPUs.

The developers of Intel’s open-source graphics driver for Linux are making significant progress in getting ready for the launch of Battlemage discrete GPUs based on Xe2 architecture. The ongoing work to enable this support is targeted for the upcoming Linux 6.11 kernel, with the latest drm-intel-next patches for Linux 6.11 indicating the incorporation of Battlemage Xe2 HPD display functionality.

After the pull request highlighted by Phoronix is integrated into the primary codebase, an upgraded Linux distribution will be capable of providing basic assistance to Battlemage discrete GPUs. However, this process will require some time since the Linux 6.11 merging phase is set to commence only in mid-July.

Noteworthy features in the upcoming Linux 6.11 patches include Panel Replay functionalities aimed at aiding in display power management. Additionally, support for DP AUX-less Advanced Link Power Management, Link-Off-Between-Frames (LOBF), and Content Match Refresh Rate (CMRR) for Lunar Lake has been included. The update also introduces fallback mechanisms for handling link training failures in DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (DP MST) configurations and various other improvements.

The stable kernel release is anticipated to be accessible in September. This version is projected to be part of upcoming distributions like Ubuntu 24.10 and other autumn Linux releases.
