i9-9980xe CPU support

Post by missjun » 2019/03/20 05:45:50

Dear. sirs

I want to check whehter Centos7.6 supports lastest CPU or not before I purchase new machine.
New system spec is i9-9980xe / GIGABYTE X299 DESIGNARE EX.
I confirmed Centos supports i9-7980xe & GIGABYTE X299 DESIGNARE EX from other user after googling..
But I cann't find any information for i9-9980xe support.
Is anyone installed with Centos 7.6 or 6.10 on i9-9980xe(or i9 X series 9th gen.) successfully?

Thank you in advance for read & answer.

When I bought my Dell I7 a number of months ago, it was drivers (Nvidia/Intel video and Intel wireless) that were the issue - the machine was newer than the kernel at the time. After the subsequent CentOS 7 kernel update several months later, all was well.
Remember - importing/building packages will likely "byte you in the butt" come update time, long after you'd forgotten you did that! Use repos whenever possible.
