I’m considering dropping non-AVX support in Rack 1.0, which would mean only CPUs released in 2011+ would be able to run Rack.
The following CPUs support AVX (Sandy Bridge or higher):
- 2nd+ gen i3, i5, i7 (model number iX-XXXX or iXXXXM)
- Celeron after 2011
- Core 2
The following CPUs do not support AVX:
- 1st gen i3, i5, i7 (model number iX-XXX or iX-XXXM)
- Most Pentiums
- Celeron before 2011
If you’re uncertain or if your CPU isn’t listed here (AMD, etc), post your exact CPU or laptop model and I’ll look it up for you.
- My CPU supports AVX (released 2011 or later)
- My CPU doesn’t support AVX (released 2010 or earier)
