FreePBX Distro 7 CPU?

Does the beta version FreePBX support the Intel Atom D525?

IIRC (If I Recall Correctly) FreePBX Distro 7 is 64-bit only…

A D525 should have the 64-bit instruction set but not all Atom systems support 64-bit…

Good luck and have a nice day!


Nothing there to say it wouldn’t work.

Instruction Set 64-bit
Instruction Set Extensions SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3

Actually this (at the end of the page you linked to)

Processors that support 64-bit computing on Intel® architecture require an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS.

suggests it

Please look at the link I provided above, there are known 64-bit support issues with Atom processors which have the 64-bit instruction set…

The best thing is to test and not assume it will work…

Have a nice day,


from bash

cat /proc/cpuinfo

will show what your hardware/bios knows about your cpu even from a 32 bit OS.

Pragmatically, if you can boot a 64 bit "live linux " distro, you are good to go.
