Graphics open-source-friendliness, AMD Ryzen vs. Intel
I may need to buy parts for a new computer because of malfunctions on current motherboard and CPU (Intel Sandy Bridge dating to May 2011).
Question is whether I am better off, regarding open-source-friendliness of graphics chips for running Xorg, with AMD Ryzen or the newer Intel chipsets. I know to avoid NVIDIA.
I am inclined to run NetBSD-current and modular pkgsrc Xorg.
When I boot into UEFI setup, I see the CPU temperature is or quickly goes to 97 C and stays there.
I tried replacing the thermal paste and installing a new case fan to replace one that had quit, but CPU temperature still shows and stays at 97 C.
Now I have a replacement Arctic Cooler heatsink and fan on order to replace the original Intel heatsink and fan whose connectors were damaged in taking out and struggling to get back in.
Currently, I boot into UEFI Setup, but after a couple minutes, the computer powers off and then tries to power back on, then off again a few seconds later, until I end the loop by turning off the power supply switch. I can guess CPU overheating.
I could transplant the current hard drive (Seagate NAS 4 TB) to get a quicker start software-wise.
