Has anyone used the new AMD CPUs and AM4 motherboards with CentOS 6 / 7?
Any reservations or warnings?
Was looking into getting one. Idealy needs 4.10 kernel. Fix maybe backported . Did not check as I was looking at mageia.

Not with current linux. But I had a system built with an AMD cpu some years ago. Turned out it had a major flaw in it, one which caused multiple crashes on a daily basis. AMD notified Windows and its microcode patched the problem. But no public notice or acknowledgement was given and no patch was issued for linux users. Nor would AMD honor its warrantee… one which did not specify any required OS.
My disdain for AMD is not so much with the technology. Mistakes happen and companies learn from that and do better next time around. But not honoring their own warrantee was a business/legal decision, one which reflects a lack of integrity to the corporation’s highest offices. That very rarely changes.
Thanks! Gonna hold off until 7.4 is more than 3-weeks old.
