DragonFly BSD

supportedhardware

DragonFly BSD runs on recent PCs supporting the amd64 (x86_64) microarchitecture; up to version 3.8, the i386 (x86) 32-bit architecture was also supported.

This page only references a small part of the hardware which can potentially run with DragonFly; if a piece of hardware is not in this list this only means nobody has tested it or reported its working state.
