NVIDIA Linux Performance-Per-Dollar: What The RX 480 Will Have To Compete Against
There's a lot of benchmarking going on this weekend at Phoronix in preparation for next week's Radeon RX 480 Linux review. Here are some fresh results on the NVIDIA side showing the current performance-per-dollar data for the NVIDIA Maxwell and Pascal graphics cards for seeing what the RX 480 "Polaris 10" card will be competing against under Linux.

The HAMMER2 file-system is going on four years in development by the DragonFlyBSD crew, namely by its founder Matthew Dillon. It's still maturing and taking longer than anticipated, but this is yet another open-source file-system.
Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" to Ship with GCC 6 by Default, Binutils 2.27
Debian developer Matthias Klose has announced that the new GCC 6 compiler, which will be made the default GCC compiler for the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" operating system, is now available in the Debian Testing repos.
Debian users who are currently using Debian Testing can make GCC 6 the default compiler by installing the gcc/g++ packages from experimental. If installing it, they are also urged to help fix reported built failures in Debian Testing and Debian Unstable.
First, let me try to subjectively summarize the problem: Historically, the resources we get in GNU/Linux come from the distributions. Anything: executables, libraries, icons, wallpapers, etc. There’s been alternatives to all of those, but none has flourished as a globally adopted solution.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.6.3, Greg Kroah-Hartman informed the community about the availability of the fourteenth maintenance update for the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series.
Hi folks, now is the time to show the achievements which kept me busy from a month during the coding period for my ‘Google Summer of Code’ project LabPlot Theme Manager and taught me so many things related to an open-source community (KDE). This was a wonderful experience for me to brush up my coding skills and grow up a little-bit as a programmer.
DigiKam earlier used DBus under Linux system, but its support under Windows and OS X made digiKam unstable. The database core implementation based on DBUS was only used with old KIOSalve which is now removed.
Thanks to a bug found in Spice's drag and drop implementation, I was able to improve the integration of our guest agent (spice-vdagent) with the Desktop Session on Linux and Windows. I enjoyed the process to solve those problems so I thought a blog post could be interesting as well.
Following the recent work we’ve been doing at Codethink in cooperation with Endless, it’s been a while now that we have the capability of building flatpak SDKs and apps for ARM architectures, and consequently also for 32bit Intel architectures.
ADI Engineering, which built the latest MinnowBoard Turbot version of the open-spec, Linux- and Android-ready MinnowBoard SBC for the Intel-backed MinnowBoard.org community, has revealed a major update. Pricing and a few other details are missing from the announcement tweet, but there are photos and a full spec list. The board will ship in the third quarter.
The keynote speaker for the openSUSE Conference today and Chief Executive Officer of SoftIron, Norman Fraser, Ph.D., made a big announcement about the release of a new powerful ARM server that comes with essential tools to get the 64-bit ARM development up and running, out-of-the-box.
From 22 to 26 June, the openSUSE Conference has been taking place in Nürnberg. There's been live video streams for those not in Bavaria while now the video recordings are being uploaded for your enjoyment at your convenience.
The Relative Windows vs. Linux Performance For NVIDIA, Intel & AMD
Following the recent Windows vs. Linux AMDGPU-PRO / RadeonSI testing, GTX 1080 Windows vs. Linux results, and yesterday's Intel Windows vs. Linux benchmarks, here is a look at all three sets of numbers when using some OpenBenchmarking.org magic to merge the data-sets and normalize the results.
