Realtek drivers - 2021

Hi,

i know it's been asked a lot....but was wondering what is the latest  update on realtek drivers in esxi 7.

I just got a new SFF (amd) and was planning on running esxi on it....

i suppose i can try install 6.7 but then i'll be stuck without being able to upgrade.

William Lam mentions the RTL8125BG chipset.
