RHEL6 ' Full Updates ended on May 10th, 2017, so form now on, if you will buy new hardware , better migrate to RHEL7 :-(

in the last four rows ,there are the words "Skylake-SP C260 Chipset" ,maybe " C260 Chipset" is not correct. in the intel website https://www.intel.sg/content/www/xa/en/design/products-and-solutions/processors-and-chipsets/purley/intel-xeon-scalable-processors.html ,there are "Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors with Intel® C620 Series Chipsets"----here is C620,this C620 is correct. please check and review it.

Why are there no Core i5 or Core i7 chips listed?

I'm getting this error on an Intel Core i7 CPU (gen 7). Would be useful to expand the table to include i5 and i7 models.

It is maddening that you still refuse to list Core processors on this, or any other site. Especially, since the full list of supported processors is easily found (by you, not me), in ./arch/x86/kernel/setup.c

Why are intel latest processors (i7 and i9 series) not listed here?

Hi , It does not include celeron processors? Is there any reason to exclude them?

"Updated 25 Octobre 2017" - Maybe outdated on November 2018 ?

Looking for an updated list....

CPU Intel Xeon D-2123IT@2.20 GHz can't be found in the list, does it support 6.10 (or 6.X) version?
