How to load different version of radeon driver?

I successfully load the amdgpu driver with

$ cat /proc/cmdline 
BOOT_IMAGE=(hd0,gpt2)/vmlinuz-5.11.21-300.fc34.x86_64 root=UUID=bda68cec-a76d-4e6a-be52-fefcff9f76a6 ro rootflags=subvol=root amdgpu.dc=0 radeon.cik_support=0 radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1

So it turns out A10-K7850K is using Sea Islands graphics instead of South Islands graphics.

Now my lspci -v reads:

And GDM started OK.

Thank you very much for your continued support!
