Which Linux Kernel to use for Xeon D 1559 CPU

Hello, Intel Support,

We are using an Intel Xeon D 1559 CPU. As we understood it it has a new IIO micro-architecture for IO interface. 

We installed a Linux kernel 3.10(x86_64) for this CPU. The system works, but the IO(PCIe DMA performance) is under expected. 

We would like to check is there a specific Linux kernel version that we need to use in order to gain the maximum performance of Xeon D CPU? 

Do we need to use a specific CPU microcode in order to gain the IIO performance of Xeon D CPU? 

Thank you.

Hello Carlos, 

Thank you for your reply. 

Your document #333423 lists out the RHEL Linux or CentOS that we use. We would like to check specifically is there any recommended Linux kernel version to use in order to gain IIO(PCIe DMA) Xeon D CPU performance? 

Do we need to apply any CPU microcode? 

Is there any recommendation in configuring the IntelRCSetup registers in the BIOS?

Thank you.
