What is "HW older than x86_64-v3" ?
Anything older than 2020
Ummm.... no, definitely no. My >5 year notebook is also x86_64-v3 and that's just an example, I'm sure there is plenty of x86_64-v3 machines quite a bit older than that.
I think you can at most make a stmt like
"Nothing newer than 2020"
but even then, Intel continues to produce (read: has not EOLed) SKUs where they chose to fuse off AVX2 support for whatever reason, so that '2020' year might only apply to products _released_ after that (but you can never be sure with Intel!).
So I'd say "it's unlikely you bought a new consumer class x86 computer after year X that does not qualify for x86_64-v3". Where X might be actually 2017.
But of course counter examples will exist.
