Phoronix: Intel Core i7 8700K Linux Benchmarks

Thursday 5th of October 2017 01:01:01 PM
2017 has been an interesting year for processors with AMD's long awaited introduction of the Zen-based Ryzen / Threadripper / EPYC processors, Intel's Core X-Series processors for high-end desktops, the Xeon Scalable processor family introduction, and now the launch of Coffee Lake as a "Kaby Lake Refresh" step before the Cannonlake desktop processors expected in 2018. While another 14nm CPU, Coffee Lake is interesting is that Intel has now upped their desktop core counts in response to Ryzen. With the Core i7 series is now six cores plus Hyper Threading, compared to 4 cores plus HT with previous i7 models. The Core i5 CPUs are also now six core but sans Hyper Threading and there is also the just-published Core i5 8400 Linux benchmarks. This article serves as our first look at the Coffee Lake Core i7 CPUs in the form of the 8700K.

Thursday 5th of October 2017 01:01:00 PM
Today marks the embargo expiry for reviews on Intel's new Coffeelake desktop processors. While a CPU refresh may not normally be too exciting, thanks to the pressure from AMD with their Ryzen processors pushing core counts higher, Intel is now upping the core counts in their desktop CPUs. Today we will be featuring Linux benchmarks of the Core i5 8400 and Core i7 8700K while this article is focusing on the i5-8400: a six-core Core i5!

TuxMachines: GNU/Linux Market Share and FUD

Thursday 5th of October 2017 09:57:52 AM
  • Linux Market Share Is Stupid | For The Record

    Will the Linux market share even reach 5%? Should we consider Chrome OS a successful example of Linux on the desktop? I ask these questions and discuss the recent revelation that data tracking for Linux usage isn’t always that accurate.

  • Munich, Germany, once an open source champion, begins moving back to Microsoft [Ed: Partly fake news from a Microsoft site because they are only assessing costs; Microsoft corruption there is still probed and the actions challenged at multiple levels.]

    If this work is being done behind the scene, for now, Matthias Kirschner, president of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE), explained that “it was agreed that the final decision will be made by the city council members after they receive a calculation of the costs.”

TuxMachines: Linux-based, Open Source Smartphone Librem 5 Crosses $1 Million In Funding

Thursday 5th of October 2017 09:00:29 AM

Ever since Purism has launched its crowdfunding campaign for Librem 5 smartphone, the project has been getting overwhelming support from the Linux and open source community. In recent past, Purism announced partnerships with KDE and GNOME.

The Librem 5 crowdfunding campaign is aiming at a funding of $1.5 million. If you look at the current stats, the campaign has just crossed the $1 million mark.

In case you’re more interested in numbers, let me tell you that Librem 5 raised $100,000 in the first 100 hours. With 18 days to go, Librem 5 is expected to cross the funding goal easily.

Talking about Purism’s partnerships, GNOME will provide a reference platform, software developers, and sponsorships for GNOME/GTK development. “GNOME Foundation will be helping coordinate hackfests, and community involvement,” Purism CEO Todd Weaver told Fossbytes previously in an interview.

Security: Google Play, WPA2, FERC, HackerOne

  • 8 'Minecraft' apps infected with Sockbot malware on Google Play found adding devices to botnet

    Security researchers have discovered that at least eight malware-laced apps on Google Play Store are ensnaring devices to a botnet to potentially carry out distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) and other malicious attacks. These apps claimed to provide skins to tweak the look of characters in the popular Minecraft: Pocket Edition game and have been downloaded as many as 2.6 million times.

  • KRACK Vulnerability: What You Need To Know
    This week security researchers announced a newly discovered vulnerability dubbed KRACK, which affects several common security protocols for Wi-Fi, including WPA (Wireless Protected Access) and WPA2. This is a bad vulnerability in that it likely affects billions of devices, many of which are hard to patch and will remain vulnerable for a long time. Yet in light of the sometimes overblown media coverage, it’s important to keep the impact of KRACK in perspective: KRACK does not affect HTTPS traffic, and KRACK’s discovery does not mean all Wi-Fi networks are under attack. For most people, the sanest thing to do is simply continue using wireless Internet access.
