centos7 and Intel AVX instructions support

Hi,

I had question regarding Intel AVX instructions set support for centos:
1. first of all is this support out of the box means compiler and OS level support.
2. If yes what are the steps to enable the same.

Didn't see much is info here in the forum so thought of confirming.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Kernel 4.18 on centos7.7

Gotcha.. Looks like main issue here is testing of centos7 with centos7 kernel and also we cannot use directly el8 kernel rpm into centos7 and need to recompile one.

Re: Kernel 4.18 on centos7.7

well centos 8 4.18 and centos7 3.10 kernel both will get maintained by redhat/centos. My only question was using centos8 4.18 kernel in centos7.

is there any technical limitation in this?

Re: Kernel 4.18 on centos7.7

Apart from el7 and el8 limitation(which can be changes using spec file) what are other technical limitation which can limit us using centos8 4.18 kernel on centos 7?

centos8 4.18 kernel is really a big improvement upon v3.10 and can be utilized without changing much with centos 7. suggestion?
