TuxMachines: AMD Threadripper 1950X Linux Benchmarks

Monday 28th of August 2017 03:39:30 PM

Last week I was able to finally get my hands on a Threadripper 1950X system thanks to AMD for being able to deliver some Linux tests from this high-end desktop platform. The Threadripper 1950X as a reminder is a 16-core processor with 32 threads via SMT, 3.4GHz base frequency, 4.0GHz boost frequency, quad-channel DDR4 support, and support for 64 PCI-E lanes. Threadripper sits between the Ryzen 7 desktop processors and the AMD EPYC server/workstation processors, which are still soon to be tested at Phoronix. The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X will set you back $999 USD, but compared to the Core i9 7900X at the same price, has six more cores / 12 threads and a slightly higher base clock frequency of 3.4GHz vs. 3.3GHz but a lower boost frequency of 4.0GHz vs. 4.3GHz.

TuxMachines: 3G-ready smartwatch runs on Linux

Monday 28th of August 2017 03:34:59 PM

The Connect Watch offers a 4-day battery, a 3G radio, and a 2-megapixel camera, and runs the open source AsteroidOS on a quad-core SoC.

Smartwatches have so far failed to stake a claim as the next big post-smartphone consumer companion, but that won’t stop new wrist-born contenders from showing their stuff. A French startup called Connect Watch has just unveiled a smartwatch of the same name that will run on the open source, Linux-based AsteroidOS wearables platform. The watch is notable for promising 4-day battery life, a 2-megapixel camera with 720p video support, and a 3G radio for autonomous operation.

Monday 28th of August 2017 03:32:53 PM

If you're looking for a more affordable way of running your office than Windows, an open source alternative like Linux can be a very good alternative. A lot of businesses needlessly stick with Windows because it is what they are familiar and comfortable with, but learning to use a Linux system is easy once you get that hang of it and it has many advantages, as you can see below...

TuxMachines: Trenta OS: August 2017 Update

Monday 28th of August 2017 02:36:08 PM

We’ve been quiet over the last few months while evaluating the future of Trenta OS and Trenta.io. We have landed on a decision that we believe is the only option at this time.

In April of this year, we paused the release schedule of Trenta OS to reevaluate our strengths and weaknesses to determine the future of our organization. We reflected on our goal – to bring a beautiful and premium feeling operating system into the hands of everyone and to enable content creators to utilize a great open alternative to the standards set by the industry. We believe we were on the right track. The Trenta.io community, the fans and their love for Trenta OS and Rainier UI enabled us to press on. We knew we didn’t have a finished project by any means, but reaching nearly 100,000 downloads during the Trenta OS alpha let us know we were onto something special. Unfortunately, limited time and resources lead to countless roadblocks during this last year.

TuxMachines: Why Is Tux “Broken” Today? Is Linux Kernel Not Feeling Well?

Monday 28th of August 2017 02:33:33 PM

If you search Linux kernel today and look for Linux mascot Tux on the search result page, you’ll notice something unusual. The Google card showed along with the results features a little distorted logo of Tux (Read Tux origin story here). Why is it so? Is our beloved Tux not feeling okay?

Before going ahead and telling you about the exact reason, let me tell you that everything is fine and Linux kernel development is being carried out without any hiccups. The final release of Linux kernel 4.13 is scheduled to arrive on September 3.

Reddit: Weird Linux?

Monday 28th of August 2017 12:35:51 PM

Is this feller deliberately trying to discredit Linux by associating it with some random Internet weirdo? Doing the video presentation while munching on jam and toast was taking the piss a little too far, jam and toast must be a delicacy where's he from :)

Seriously, anyone looking on Youtube for Linux tutorials and comes across this and what'll they think: yep thought so, Linux users a bunch of weirdos !

System76's Pop!_OS Linux to Get a Beta Release Next Week with HiDPI Improvements

System76 is getting ready to unleash the first Beta release of their upcoming Pop!_OS Linux distribution, which should be available to download next week based on the Ubuntu 17.10 Final Beta. It appears that System76's development team recently dropped focus on the Pop!_OS Installer, which they develop in collaboration with the elementary OS team, to concentrate on fixing critical bugs and add the final touches to the Beta release. They still need to add some patches to fix backlight brightness issues on Nvidia GPUs. Read more

  • AKiTiO Node: Testing NVIDIA eGPU Support in Ubuntu 17.10
    Ever since the announcement of Intel’s Thunderbolt 3 technology there has been external graphics card (eGPU) support. Unfortunately for most of last year, including with Intel’s own Skull Canyon NUC, putting this solution to use was challenging at best. Most motherboards didn’t fully support the technology and those that did typically required a system that was far more expensive. For example, the Skull Canyon NUC at release was $700, unconfigured. Adding SSDs and RAM usually bumped that up well over $1000.

  • Vivaldi 1.12 Web Browser Debuts with Highly Requested Features, Improvements
    Vivaldi, the Chromium-based web browser designed with the power user in mind, has been recently updated to version 1.12, a release that introduces highly requested features and a whole lot of under-the-hood improvements. There are three big new features implemented in Vivaldi 1.12. The first is a built-in Image Properties feature that works when you right-click on an image on the Web, showing you a bunch of useful information, such as camera model, depth of field, ISO sensitivity, focal length, exposure, histogram, time and date, and white balance.
  • Chromium Will Soon Let You Browse the Web in VR with a Daydream View Headset
    Chromium evangelist François Beaufort posted today on his Google+ profile information regarding the VR (Virtual Reality) capabilities of the open-source web browser, which is the base of Chrome OS and Google Chrome. It would appear that the Chromium team is working on a set of new virtual reality features for the web browser, which means that more VR goodies are coming to popular Chromium-based web browsers like Opera, Vivaldi, and Google Chrome.
  • libinput and the HUION PenTablet devices
    HUION PenTablet devices are graphics tablet devices aimed at artists. These tablets tend to aim for the lower end of the market, driver support is often somewhere between meh and disappointing. The DIGImend project used to take care of them, but with that out of the picture, the bugs bubble up to userspace more often.
