Good news Linux and AMD Fans, Phoronix has reported that Linux 5.3 will finally address issues with audio input on systems with AMD processors.

the fix coming in Linux 5.3 is also marked for back-porting to existing kernel stable series is a fix to address distorted and crackling analog audio input that has affected AMD systems for at least the past two years with certain Realtek audio codecs.

Phoronix said that Linux users who rely on AMD processors have been reporting “crackling” audio input since at least 2017. The problems rarely affect the audio output, so many people were probably unaware of the issue, but there were sporadic reports of “occasional playback hiccups.”

These issues were said to affect systems featuring motherboards build on the X470 and X370 chipsets using Realtek audio codecs. Linux users couldn’t find a workaround to address the issue until until SUSE engineer Takashi Iwai shared a series of work arounds discovered after “lengthy debugging sessions.”
