    Phoronix: Trying Out The BSDs On The Intel Core i9 13900K "Raptor Lake"

    It's been a while since trying out the BSD operating systems on bleeding-edge hardware while a Phoronix Premium recently asked about the BSDs on Raptor Lake. Well, here are my initial experiences trying to run FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and DragonflyBSD on the Intel Core i9 13900K desktop...

    So much for NetBSD running on everything, including your toaster..

      so stay with *bsd. on 11th gen - it has avx512 - not bad to have.

        OpenBSD benefits from its six month release cycle. The others are more LTS-oriented. You might have had better luck using the development (somewhat confusingly called “current”) versions of Free and NetBSD.

          Shrug..
          maybe they just don’t have the hardware yet?
          For example, OpenBSD doesn’t state support for raptor lake.
          ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
          Supported hardware:

          Processors


          All versions of the AMD Athlon 64 processors and their clones are supported. Unsupported Hardware:


          New hardware is constantly being released, some of which may lack support. Your donation of time, hardware, or documentation can accelerate this support
          +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

          Maybe “testing” whether an OS “works” on a platform should be based on whether the devs STATE there is such support?

          Michael, to the above, if someone requests this kind of “test”, unless they also include a statement from the project’s website that they support the platform, you should reject it.

          kind of unfair to “test” software on an, as yet, unsupported platform..​

            Any Maintainer&major Dev of an OS should get latest hardware donated by intel/AMD. Cant be too expensive to send out a few CPUs

              All these OS'es are primarily network OS'es meant to run on server equipment, not on your typical desktop/laptop. I really don't see any issues here. Support will be added eventually. Large corporations running thousands of servers don't rush to update their equipment once a new generation of CPUs hits the market, and not only that RPL is not a server CPU architecture anyways. The Sapphire Rapids CPU lineup (based on Golden Cove/ADL) is yet to be released.

                Listing processors supported is useless. It's not the processor that matters.

                  That's a very incorrect assumption.

Again, Linux is a fucking nothing on the desktop, all BSDs combined are probably 1% of the Linux's desktop market share. Pretty much no one runs BSDs on the their desktop other than people playing with their PCs in their spare time or developers.

                    Damn, did you really need to add this crap, "incorrect assumption"? I have a strong desire to BL you forever right away because I hate when people talk like that. You're not an authority, you're a fucking no one for all I know and even if you were an expert, real experts don't allow themselves to to talk like that.
                    Clueless as usual.
