Description and Notes

The Radeon RX 460 is a slightly older graphics card that is supported by the open source amdgpu driver in the Linux Kernel.

It requires a PCIe x16 connection to the Pi 5, so you will need to fabricate one yourself (for the time being). You should also supply at least 5A of 12V power to the x16 slot. You’ll also need to provide a separate PCIe power connection (6-pin) to the top of the card.

amdgpu (open source) driver

To get the amdgpu driver loaded, you have to recompile the Linux kernel for Pi OS.

Go to Device Drivers > Graphics support on the menuconfig step, and select the amdgpu driver to install.

Also make sure you have the AMD firmware installed (sudo apt install -y firmware-amd-graphics) or the driver will complain about missing files.

For the time being, to get this card working, you need to apply some patches currently being maintained in Coreforge’s Pi OS Linux fork.

See the linked GitHub issue for more details.
