    Question New rig compatibility with Fedora (28)

    My existing machine is getting old, so I have been looking at getting a new computer. As usual, it is a toss up between Intel and AMD. If I choose AMD it saves me quite a pretty penny, but my concern is whether Fedora 28 supports the rig, especially in terms of graphics.

    I shouldn't have any problems running Fedora on the Intel platform, especially when I am not using nVidia graphics, which avoids the Wayland issue. However, how is the compatibility with AMD? The AMD version of my new computer will have AMD Ryzen7 1700X with an Asus Prime X470 motherboard.

    Does anybody have experience with this particular setup? Or at least something similar? Ideally I want to run Xen on bare metal, and put Fedora and Windows 7/10 under Xen. I am doing this since wine does not run all the programs I want (some of them old games) properly.

    Any comments, opinions and feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Try looking hear: https://system76.com/desktops - Ryzen Supported, note Pop!_OS is based on Ubuntu.

    I went thru the same problem a few years back i5 3570 vs AMD Flame Throwing 6 & 8 Core Processors. In Video Editing they were on par w/ i7 and in some Single Thread Applications they struggled against an i5. I was using W7 Pro back then before ditching Windows for Linux. Works Great even for Web/Graphic Design.

    This is only the 2nd Intel Processor I've ever owned; All those other times, AMD was a better deal all-the-way around.

    Thanks for your input. I am probably going to go with AMD. Gives me a good rig to test some Rust programs.

    I can only recommend AMD, here is a couple of AMD boxes I am running atm (both on FC28):

    Machine: Supermicro product: AS -2023US-TR4 Mobo: Supermicro model: H11DSU-iN v: 1.02A
    Memory: RAM: total: 125.81 GiB
    CPU: Topology: 2x 16-Core (4-Die) model: AMD EPYC 7351 bits: 64 type: MT MCP MCM SMP arch: Zen rev: 2
    # uptime 21:13:07 up 70 days, 25 min, 7 users, load average: 6.74, 7.07, 7.87

    Machine: Mobo: ASUSTeK model: PRIME B350M-A
    Memory: RAM: total: 31.41 GiB
    CPU: Topology: 6-Core model: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X bits: 64 type: MT MCP arch: Zen rev: 1

    The Epyc box was a "DIVA" to get running appropriately (many posts on this forum about it), but after the latest BIOS and Firmware updates to all of its devices, it is rocksolid, and I am about to load it up to the hilt.

    Which Fedora Spin are you using? It might make a difference?

    I'm now back on F29 Xfce, runs great on an i5 3570 16GB.
