    Question Recompiling for AMD Ryzen 7?

    I don't know where to post the question. This forum seems to be the most likely candidate...

    Okay, so here is the question. I am about to buy a new rig based on the AMD Ryzen, which has 8 cores and can run 16 threads. I am pretty sure standard Fedora is not compiled to support that, which means there will be a waste of CPU cycles. Can I recompile the kernel to take advantage of the concurrent threads available? That should be interesting...

    are you sure about that? I'm running Intel 12 core on CentOS 7 (a 'derivative' of Fedora 19) with no problem. My understanding is the O.S. will find whatever you have - but I am no expert!
    Change - the only constant.

    I have a Ryzen 2700x 8 core 16 thread cpu.
    I can definitely confirm that the Linux kernel, as used by ALL Linux distributions is multi-cpu/multi-threaded. Install htop to replace the top program. Htop displays each core's activity graphically and concurrently.

    Fedora uses the released Linux Kernels.
