I’m wondering if anyone could tell my if a Ryzen 3rd Gen CPU would work out of the box with Ubuntu 20.04? I’m considering a Ryzen 7 3700x for a new Linux gaming PC / workstation. I’ve been scouring the internet for a while trying to find out if this is a good idea, but I’ve only come across old articles and posts essentially saying “it don’t work”. I’ve seen nothing that suggests 20.04 with kernel version 5.4 would cause any issues, but I want to know for sure. Does anyone have a 3rd Gen Ryzen build an can offer me some information?
For reference, the build configuration I’m thinking about:
- Case: Corsair Carbide series 275R
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700x (or maybe 3800x)
- GPU: AMD Radeon RX 590
- Motherboard: MSI B450… maybe one of these
- Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
EDIT: I’m starting to think maybe a Ryzen 5 3600 would be a better option.
