NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management.

Google Nexus 6P Review: This is the Android Flagship You’re Looking For

This is the flagship Android handset you’re looking for, and best of all it’s reasonably priced. It is unlocked and offers universal wireless carrier support (yes, including Verizon), and it starts at just $500. At that price, you have a choice of silver, graphite, frost, and matte gold finishes and 32 GB of storage. If you want to step up to 64 GB, which I recommend, the price jumps just $50 to $550. (Take that, Apple: A similarly configured iPhone 6S Plus costs $850, or $300 more than the Nexus 6P.) A 128 GB version will set you back an also-reasonable $650. These are fantastic prices for a fantastic flagship device. And that, folks, is called the sweet spot. The Nexus 6P hits it, and while there are still some platform niceties that make me personally prefer the iPhone, the gap is now smaller than ever. The Nexus 6P is highly recommended. Read more

Rebellin Linux Offers Best of Both Gnome Worlds

Both versions generally performed well. The Rebellin distro is impressive considering its small development team. Rebellin is not without a few glitches, however. One major problem I had with several of my computers testing the distro was with the audio playback in both the GNOME and the Mate editions. It did not play back. I double checked all the settings, even making sure that the mute option was not checked. Another issue affected just the Mate edition. The touchpad settings are not available, and the Touchpad tab itself is missing. The Synaptics Touchpad Driver is not being loaded in Rebellin Mate, according to Rebellin's developer. He posted a workaround that may temporarily resolve the problem. It is a multistep process that is not very straightforward. Read more
