I would value feedback from anyone on this list who has been running
Debian on an AMD Ryzen system. I have gone back through list posts for a
year and cannot find anything on this subject.
I am running the testing stream and am looking to upgrade a 10-year-old PC
which I use for work. Having had good experiences with AMD processors in
the past - my current box has a K6-2 chip - I would prefer to go with a
processor from the same company.
If anyone does respond, could you please copy me in? I am not subscribed
to the list.
I've been using a Ryzen as my primary desktop for a while. There's
nothing particularly noteworthy in doing so, which is probably why
you're not seeing much. As usual with modern CPUs, get the latest
firmware update available for your motherboard--which will include
updates that affect the performance & stability of the CPU itself to a
much greater extent than in the k6-2 days.
