My 13-year old HP desktop is still working fine, but it's obviously time
to retire it before it permanently dies. Also, my wife recently found a bit
of luck at the casino and this is the perfect time to upgrade. So I have
a couple of questions about hardware compatibility with openSUSE.
It looks like the AMD Ryzen cpu's have a bit of an edge over Intel, but has
anyone seen compatibility issues?
Christmas keeps on giving at your place -- good for your. Recently had the
experience with 2 Ryzen laptops. No issues and damn good performance (they
were HP too)
And what about high-res monitors? I'm looking at a UHD (3840 x 2160) monitor,
any issues with Leap 15.1?
You are talking about my wish list here, so I can't add much. My monitors
won't die and I'm not getting rid of my 1920 x 1280's until they do...
I did have experience with son's 4K gaming monitor over DisplayPort (I guess
they are all over DisplayPort now) Getting the 4K/DisplayPort working was a
bit of a trick as there was some exclusive either/or logic in the Nvidia card
between wanting to work over the HDMI or the DisplayPort, but not wanting to
do both very gracefully while you worked to get the DisplayPort setup. That
said, it has been flawless without issue since.
And how about those really wide/curved monitors?
Concept is good, and it prices were comparable, I'd probably go with the
curved just in attempt to keep focal-distance as constant as could be from
side-to-side. Though I'd probably shy away from a 30% premium for it.
I'll look forward to all the other good input along with you. I haven't been
too impressed with new LED viewing angles compared with older LCD. Straight-on
they look fine (black is a little wishy-washy on LED).
Thanks in advance for any advice,
