Where do I find support for my Intel Processor?


Processors and hardware in general are considered third-party components. Red Hat supports Red Hat products when deployed on certified hardware, hypervisors or providers. Using Red Hat software in an unsupported configuration introduces significant risk to customer environments. Customers should avoid this scenario.

Many Red Hat Partners have certified their hardware with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a result, mutual customers have the confidence of knowing these certified hardware systems are supported by Red Hat when running Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

The system model that has been certified is considered to provide all of the features from the complete collection of standard and optional components unless explicitly excluded by or from the specification. Processors are only one component of a system and are certified as part of this overall system certification. The processors that are supported by the system certification are those that are listed in the system's specification which is found at the vendor website.

Red Hat has made functional improvements to the Red Hat Hardware Compatibility List search engine to enable searching the certified hardware components for processors based on their Product Collection or their Code Name as seen in the Intel Product Specification.


There used to be a list of version versus the Cpu model. The HCL is useless.

totally agree. old page was a list of the versions. it's more helpful.

second that.

totally agree.

Would be nice to see a list of the versions and compatible CPUs.

I can't find the hardware I'm looking for. The list of compatible cpus that was previously not available anymore?

The current HCL has no effect. Where can I find the CPU compatibility list?

I agree with the other comments. The HCL is useless.

Bring back the list .

I found a way to open the previous list; first you have to make sure there is a proxy。

Please update this article with an actual list. As others commented, the HCL is almost useless for finding this information, and it is not clearly documented anywhere else.

This page is useless.
