Linus torvalds announced today the latest Linux 5.11 kernel series. This is the next major kernel after 5.10. Moreover, it give us better hardware support and also some new features to improve the performance of our pcs.
After the announcement of development it take less then 2 month to introduced the new Linux kernel 5.11 series. It is latest series for Linux and its providing great hardware support for their machines and tools.
Linux kernel 5.11 has come with the support for AMD “ Van Gogh” and @ Dim grey cavefish@ GPU in the AMDGPU driver , Intel SGX (Software Guard Extensions) support.
