Hardware Compatibility Testing for new LINUX versions
I have loked at the current Hardware Compatibility List here and can't find the latest AMD processors in it.
That's understandable because they've been out for a short time only, so that sparked the following question:
- When new versions of LINUX are published, what hardware are they tested against? For example there's been a spate of new processors announced and delivered onto the market recently by both Intel and AMD, ie dual-processor models.
Are new versions of LINUX generated to run with these new processors? Does the existence of new hardware generate a new LINUX development stream?
If so, I would like to know how to get hold of this information and understand the new (hardware-compatibility) features of each version of LINUX.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
