Linux 5.8 released with AMD energy driver, F2FS LZO-RLE, IBM POWER10 booting

As Phoronix notes:

See our Linux 5.8 feature overview for all the exciting changes from an AMD Energy Driver for Zen/Zen2 CPUs to new F2FS compression capabilities, POWER10 CPUs starting to boot with the mainline kernel code, power management improvements, and much more. This is also the first major kernel release featuring the new inclusive terminology guidelines.

You can build it yourself, or just wait until it trickles down into your distribution of choice.
