tux500: Where are we now?

Filed under
Linux

Well, hasn't this been an interesting week. To say that the Linux Community lacks passion is akin to saying Van Gogh didn't like stars. In any event, and regardless of your personal feelings about the Tux500 project or mainstream advertising for Linux, most of the people we talk to agree.

Windows 10 vs. Linux Radeon Software Performance, Including AMDGPU-PRO & RadeonSI

As alluded to earlier and on Twitter, the past few days I have been working on a fresh Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux graphics/gaming performance comparison. This time it's looking at the latest Radeon performance using an R9 Fury and RX 480. Tests on Windows were obviously done with Radeon Software Crimson Edition while under Linux were the two latest AMD/RTG Linux driver options: the hybrid AMDGPU-PRO driver and the fully open-source driver via Linux 4.8 and Mesa 12.1-dev.
