What do you mean not supported anymore? Once AMD became aware that a free firmware could be used with their hardware, they made further rehashes inherently incompatible with open firmware, or the people responsible for supporting the AMD branch of libreboot haven't developed anything for the latest of AMD cpus?
The 8350 is old now, and AMD milked the shit out of it by releasing that shitty overclocked version and the lower power E version, all objectively worse than an i5.
I still use my 8350 in a separate PC designated as a "family PC" and for video encoding. My main PC has an i5-4690 that's better in every single way. The Zen chips really needed to come out sooner than the end of this year. I'm afraid it might end up being too little too late.
AMD just hasn't produced a new processor since 2012. They just re-brand the old chips and increase the clock by 5-10%. The last decent processor AMD produced was the FX 6300/8350/9590 where were essentially the same micro architecture with different gift wrap. They're still competitive today and a great way to save money on a gayming build.
AMD is just miles behind intel. Its too the point that the savings of an AMD core system don't even make price to performance sense for compute heavy loads.
>>52434763 Well that's true, but the thing is, intels processors in 2012 were great, and they haven't improved much on great. AMD's processors in 2012 were mediocre, and AMD hasn't improved much on mediocre. Ignoring bulldozer which was worse than the Phenom IIs
