As of the launch of the Ryzen CPU line up from AMD, AMD processors are becoming more and more favorable from a gaming and security standpoint. AMD Ryzen CPUs are commonly cheaper, and have better performance-per-dollar than their Intel counterparts. Furthermore, with the recent launch of AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs, in some scenarios, AMD is actually outperforming Intel. So, we would like to cover AMD CPU support and any bugs we are aware of in this Wiki article
AMD Ryzen 1st Gen
As far as we are aware, CPU-related bugs are at a minimum on Ryzen 1st gen CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 2nd Gen
As far as we are aware, CPU-related bugs are at a minimum on Ryzen 2nd gen CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen
AMD Ryzen 3rd gen CPUs where just released recently. However, thanks to the work of Level1Techs, Ryzen 3rd gen CPUs have been found to have issues with the 5.1 Linux kernel. Specifically, Linux distributions running the 5.1 kernel cannot boot because a kernel panic emerges. It is unknown whether these issues plague Drauger OS since it uses the Liquorix kernel, and, at time of writing, is on the 5.1 kernel. However, it is advised to proceed with caution on Drauger OS when using Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs.
No fix has been found as of yet for the 5.1 Linux kernel on AMD Ryzen 3rd gen.
