Is Funtoo ready for AMD Ryzen CPUs?  Does it need GCC 6.X and a 4.11 kernel for full support?  I'd like to know before I get a new system.

it is somehow ready.

yes, for specific ryzen optimization, you need gcc-6. kernel-4.9 supports zen cpu's already as of 4.9.18 (that's the default kernel in debian unstable and is what funtoo using by default) both debian-sources-4.9.18 and gcc-6.3 already available in portage tree  but masked. debian-sources is ready for unmask, gcc-6.3 still needs more tests.

Thanks for the info, Oleg.  Guess I'll wait a little longer.  I hate being an early adopter.  BIOS from AMD/motherboard makers still need work as well.

I'd be willing to pitch in or donate.
