Is that fine to run FreeBSD with AMD Ryzen 3 2200G?

I am trying to buy a new system. This new system will run PostgreSQL as a database server. I really hope FreeBSD can be the operating system, but I am not sure about the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G chipset.

If you don't get answers but buy it, please post your results. Just tried a quick search for FreeBSD Ryzen 3 2200G but got no really definitive answers. https://github.com/FreeBSDDesktop/kms-drm/issues/56 seems to indicate some troubles, but I think that's only if running X. (I just glanced over it.) If that were the case, and there's an extra video slot, there are various cheap NVidia cards that would work.

Of little help but, I, too, believe I've read that FreeBSD runs fine on Ryzen but can't say any more than that.

I will check it, and I don't need the X for this system.

I still have not built my new home server, life gets in the way of life. Hope to drop the hammer on that later this summer. I'll be going with Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600. I'll be posting how that goes.

There are some issues posted about Ryzen (freezes/crashes) on the mailinglists which are being worked on however it looks like you'll need to use -STABLE and/or -CURRENT for now.

I've built my home pc using ASROCK B450M-HDV, AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, SSD. After installing FreeBSD 11.2, the system booted successfully. I installed some packages, and that's all, cannot say much, for I was going to use this PC as a desktop, but Radeon Vega isn't supported yet, so i stopped.

My Ryzen 5 1600 machine is running perfectly fine and has since I built it last month. I'm only doing bare metal install with 11.2-RELEASE, but will be trying some virtual machine stuff this autumn after I have wrapped up my warmer weather activities.
