i am on 16.04.2 lts after upgrade from 14.04. so iam still on kernel 4.4.skylake seems to be supported best on kernel 4.8+. but since there are a lot of backports from canonical(i am on 4.4.0-81 meanwhile) does this means, that the backports got all the goodies from 4.8 related to skylake ?or is it still recommended to go for hwe to get kernel 4.8 for skylake?
so far everything works fine for me on 4.4 but i wonder if i can get eg. better battery time with 4.8 and overall optimum support for skylake.
thanx in advanced.
If you are happy with your current software setup, I'd avoid tweaking anything... That being said, 4.8.6 I think is where upstream kernel support for the 9350 was relatively complete. The 4.9-lts kernels have been great on the 9350.
I don't use ubuntu, though, so take any recommendations from me with a grain of salt.
