    Did Intel disable support for ECC in the kaby lake core i3? I can't find a review that directly mentions it. Skylake had it.

    This was bound to happen with restricting E3 xeons by chipset, and fuck them for that. This is just the reverse of that.

    Frankly the whole lot of intel's segmentation for the last decade is total bullshit, ECC should be pushed into more mainstream as chip density and total capacity keeps going up, not less. We already saw some weirdness with the DDR3 shrinks, I never thought software would be able to manipulate bit flips on purpose.

    Oh wow thanks guys! Didn't notice that until you pointed it out. To bad but oh well...

    However ryzen is to include ECC support isn't it?

    We don't know. We hope so, but there has been zero information on that front AFAIK.

    AVX and AVX 2.0 are disabled in the Kaby Pentiums with HT.
    What a mess. Typical Intel.

    Indeed.

    Question: AVX does not matter for server workloads? I bought one for a linux server.
