    Phoronix: The "Chinese EPYC" Hygon Dhyana CPU Support Still Getting Squared Away For Linux

    Back in June is when the Linux kernel patches appeared for the Hygon Dhyana, the new x86 processors based on AMD Zen/EPYC technology licensed by Chengdu Haiguang IC Design Co for use in Chinese data-centers. While the patches have been out for months, they haven't reached the mainline kernel quite yet but that might change next cycle...

        Most Chinese e-tailer sites don't seem to have the latest hardware generation, or in many cases they don't carry well-known brands.

        For example, I never have any luck getting current-generation boxed processors from Aliexpress. And most of the boards, SSDs or memory are from Chinese brands which I have never heard of.

        All of my other accessories are bought from e-commerce sites in China but processors, boards, RAM and storage remain as sore points
