    Will Ubuntu 20.04 work flawlessly with AMD Pro A6-8570E?

    Hi,

    There are people online who suggest that Linux and AMD do not get along as well Linux and Intel.

    I have bought a device with AMD Pro A6-8570E and would like to know if it would be feasible to install Ubuntu 20.04 on it.

    I'd be thankful for any advice in regard to this matter.

    Asking for advice on something like that is pretty pointless. Different PCs with that same CPU have different motherboards with different components and BIOSes. Some work better, others less so.

    Since you have "a device", why not test it?
    Download an ISO, make a Live USB, and boot from it, then run for as long as needed to convince you it works "flawlessly" or otherwise.

    I wouldn't expect Ubuntu (or windows if it is installed) to run "flawlessly" on any machine and they usually don't. Perfection is what is strived for and rarely achieved. It's a bit late as you have already made the purchase so I would follow the suggestions above and try. You can try as many distributions as you want just using a USB.

    aside from what was already said (use Live USB to test how well it works):

    those people are wrong. i have 3 pure AMD pc, 2 AMD+nvidia PC and they all work just as good as the Intel system.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
