Have been running AMD Athlon from 2001 to 2013, then AMD A 10 from 2013 on. I had to replace the previous PC because the fan on the motherboard stopped working.
I've never had any problems with AMD / ATI hardware or Intel hardware running Linux the open source drivers work well.AMD stuff seems to run very nicely with the open source Linux graphics driver, Intel and NVIDIA seems to give more trouble.
I think I tried the proprietary ATI driver last year, just like you said under "Additional Drivers" and it changed my screen resolution to 5000 x 5000. Everything was really small but crystal clear. I just changed back to the open source driver because the other one would not let me change the resolution at all.Back in 2014 Linux users were able to get proprietary Nvidia graphics drivers from "Additional Drivers" section of Linux and that doesn't seem to be available with the new Linux distros.
This is what I posted and I discovered the difference / found my answer and didn't see any need for my post which is why I removed it.Not sure why Tom deleted his previous Post but as I recall his
resulted in 4.4.0-148, a match.
It was not just /vulnerabilities which was generated with the kernel upgrade, there were 2 other folders, /intel_pstate and /smt, and you'll note that SMT was referenced in the file on MDS Tom provided earlier.

Did that shed any light, was it similar to/different from what I mentioned above?I discovered the difference / found my answer
Can you save a bullet or two for me? No, for my Intel, not meI'm thinking about taking all of my Intel products out to the farm and blasting them full of holes with my 357 magnum.
Yesthe same as what you show in post # 14 .Did that shed any light, was it similar to/different from what I mentioned above?
I will save you a box of bullets.Can you save a bullet or two for me? No, for my Intel, not me
