Linux tech site Phoronix reports AMD added support for some upcoming GPUs in its Linux OpenGL driver. Mesa 20.3-devel features support for the Van Gogh APU and Dimgrey Cavefish. The latter is the codename of the Navi23 GPU, which will likely be used for the Radeon RX 6600 and/or 6500 series. Support for Navi21 was added about three months ago thus this suggests Navi23 will follow at a later time.
VanGogh and Dimgrey Cavefish are both GFX10.3 (Navi 2) parts. Van Gogh has been rumored for a while as a next-gen mobile APU with Zen 2 CPU cores and RDNA2 graphics in the 7.5~18 Watt TDP space. Details on Dimgrey Cavefish are light as it's another Linux-specific codename for a Navi 2 part in following the X.Org color + fish family naming convention.
