    The Stable channel of Chrome OS 73 is nearly here for consumer Chromebooks and there are some key business features for those that use Chrome devices for business in this release. Some functions are a “catch up” to what consumers can already do on a Chromebook, while others are new and specific to enterprises.

  • Kodlix GN41 Gemini Lake mini PC is available with Windows or Linux

    The Kodlix GN41 is a small, fanless desktop computer with an Intel Celeron N4100 quad-core Gemini Lake processor, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage.

    It’s not particularly remarkable from a hardware standpoint — there’s no shortage of cheap mini PCs on the market these days. But what makes the Kodlix GN41 a bit unusual is the software: it’s available with a choice of Windows 10 or Ubuntu Linux.

    The past year has been busy here at Sublime HQ. We've grown our engineering team, shipped Sublime Text 3.1 and released our second product, Sublime Merge. If you use Git and like the ethos of Sublime Text, we think you'll love it.

    Today we're pushing out Sublime Text 3.2, which builds off of a bunch of work we've done in Sublime Merge. This includes: first-class Git integration, incremental diffing, new theme functionality and block caret support. Beyond that is a slew of other enhancements, stability improvements and performance gains. See the full changelog below for details.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Linux Benchmarks

Last week NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 1660 as the newest RTX-less Turing GPU but costing only $219+ USD. The GTX 1660 is a further trimmed down version of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti that launched several weeks prior. After picking up an ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Phoenix Edition, here are Linux OpenGL/Vulkan gaming benchmarks compared to a wide assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards under Ubuntu. The GeForce GTX 1660 features 1408 CUDA cores (compared to 1536 with the GTX 1660 Ti) while having a 1785MHz boost clock frequency and 1530MHz base clock frequency. The GeForce GTX 1660 opts for 6GB of GDDR5 unlike the 6GB GDDR6 used by the GTX 1660 Ti, which means only around 192GB/s of video memory bandwidth compared to 288GB/s with the Ti model. The other specifications are largely in common with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the other Turing GPUs aside from lacking the RT/tensor cores. Read more
