  • GPU virtualization update

    A few months ago, Robert Foss wrote a blog post about virtualizing GPU Access. In his post, Robert explained the architecture of the GPU virtualization stack and, how to build and run a VM with hardware acceleration.

    If you are interested by the GPU virtualization topic, I suggest you read Robert’s post.

    Today, I will discuss the major improvements which landed upstream during these pasts 3 months.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760/960/1060 / RTX 2060 Linux Gaming & Compute Performance

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is shipping today as the most affordable Turing GPU option to date at $349 USD. Last week we posted our initial GeForce RTX 2060 Linux review and followed-up with more 1080p and 1440p Linux gaming benchmarks after having more time with the card. In this article is a side-by-side performance comparison of the GeForce RTX 2060 up against the GTX 1060 Pascal, GTX 960 Maxwell, and GTX 760 Kepler graphics cards. Not only are we looking at the raw OpenGL, Vulkan, and OpenCL/CUDA compute performance between these four generations, but also the power consumption and performance-per-Watt. Read more

Linux Tools: The Meaning of Dot

Let's face it: writing one-liners and scripts using shell commands can be confusing. Many of the names of the tools at your disposal are far from obvious in terms of what they do (grep, tee and awk, anyone?) and, when you combine two or more, the resulting "sentence" looks like some kind of alien gobbledygook. None of the above is helped by the fact that many of the symbols you use to build a chain of instructions can mean different things depending on their context. Read more
