Will be Stretch support intel Coffee Lake?

Postby nikachalo » 2017-06-06 10:05

in the second half of 2017 (early 2018) intel release new microarchitecture Coffee Lake, 300 Series chipset, and LGA 1151 V2. Stretch 9 "stable" will be supported this?
I didnt find this in kernel 4.9. Im gonna upgrade my hardware. It will be sadly if Stretch doesn't work))

Debian stable won't receive feature updates during its lifetime, so no.

But, sometimes later after CoffeeLake release you can count on stretch-backports for newer kernels as well as graphics stack, etc.

But, by the time CoffeeLake support lands in upstream mainline kernel, it could well be ~1 year after Stetch's release, which will be ~6 months before Debian 10 freeze. At that time, you might as well use Debian 10 instead.


Reference:
Debian 8 release date - April 25, 2015
SkyLake release date - August 5, 2015
SkyLake initial support - Nov 1, 2015
KabyLake release date - August 30, 2016
KabyLake initial support - Feb 19, 2017
Debian 9 full freeze - Feb 5, 2017
