The founder of Linux has switched to AMD, after many years of using Intel processors.

After 15 years of using Intel-based processing, the founder of Linux is switching to AMD for his computers.

Linus Torvalds, who is the founder of the Linux open source operating system, made the announcement that he is leaving Intel behind in favor of AMD’s processing power. The announcement came while he also announced Linux 5.7-rc7 kernel.

“In fact, the biggest excitement this week for me was just that I upgraded my main machine, and for the first time in about 15 years, my desktop isn’t Intel-based.”

Torvald said he is now using the AMD Threadripper 3970x, and that his test builds are now three times faster than they used to be.

AMD, which stands for Advanced Micro Devices, made a strong progression into the CPU processor market with the release of their Ryzen series in 2017. Due to the their superior price-to-performance ratio, many companies and tech leaders have begun to gravitate towards AMD as well.
