  • RadeonSI's Gallium3D Driver Performance Has Improved Massively In The Past Year

    As some more exciting benchmarks to carry out this US holiday week, here are benchmarks of all major Mesa releases from Mesa 11.0 from mid 2015 through the latest Mesa 13.1-dev code as of this week. Additionally, the latest AMDGPU-PRO numbers are provided too for easy comparison of how the open-source AMD GCN 3D driver performance has evolved over the past year. It's a huge difference!

  • LLVM 4.0 Causes Slow Performance For RadeonSI?

    Several times in the past few weeks I've heard Phoronix readers claim the LLVM 4.0 SVN code causes "slow performance" or has rendering issues. Yet it's gone on for weeks and I haven't seen such myself, so I decided to run some definitive tests at least for the OpenGL games most relevant to our benchmarking here.

  • It Looks Like We'll Still See A GUI Control Panel For AMD Linux

    Earlier this year I exclusively reported on the "Radeon Settings" GUI control panel may be open-sourced for AMD Linux users but since then I hadn't heard anything publicly or privately about getting this graphics driver control panel on Linux for AMDGPU-PRO and the fully-open AMDGPU stack. But it looks like that it's still being worked on internally at AMD.

  • Yet More AMDGPU DAL Patches This Week For Testing

    It had been a few weeks since last seeing any new enablement patches for AMD's DAL display abstraction layer code, which is a big requirement for HDMI/DP audio, HDMI 2.0, potential FreeSync support, and also needed for next-generation GPUs. The lack of fresh DAL patches changed though this week when new patches were sent out and already another round of revising to this display code has now been mailed out for review.

Controlling Relays with ARTIK boards with Tizen OS and IoTivity server

The number of “Smart” bulbs and switches that are available out in the market is nearing infinity these days. These devices generally tend to cost a considerable amount of money, and for the price what you generally get is a device that can probably be controlled over bluetooth or WiFi from your Phones and smartwatches. All this spending however, doesn’t make any sense for a maker or a DIY enthusiast as all this can be achieved with some really cheap electronics components which are widely available.

Never buying Windows again, eh? How about the Linux powered Oryx Pro?

Filed under
GNU
Linux

The Oryx Pro is the opposite of most of the laptops you have seen reviewed here recently. At 15.2x10.7x1.1" and 5.5lbs it is bulkier than the slim laptops dominating the market, not to mention the 2lb power brick. It also runs Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as opposed to Win10, thankfully the install is well configured for the hardware present according to the review at Ars Technica. The hardware on the other hand is familiar and rather impressive, a desktop class GTX 1060, an i7-6700HQ, 32GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. The model reviewed at Ars runs you almost $1900 or there is a 17" model, as well as a GTX 1070 upgrade available if you so desire. Pop by to take a look at the full review of this Linux powered laptop.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
