    Phoronix: The Most Popular Linux Hardware Of 2012

    Here's a look at some of the most popular PC components for Linux users this year...

    - Intel HD 2500/4000 "Ivy Bridge" (Gen7)
    - Intel Core IGP (Gen5)
    - Matrox MGA G200eW WPCM450

    Shhuuure! 3 place inhabited by a Matrox. Does any virtual machine use that as kind of emulated GPU "User Agent" string?
    I can't really believe that a Matrox GPU should be that common among average users. So the question is: Is the rest of the whole data set useful?

      Since when Phoronix has average users?

        The only VM I've heard of emulating Matrox is AMD's SimNow, but that's designed for BIOS/kernel/driver debugging, not as a general-purpose VM that it would make sense to benchmark. Perhaps the rankings are based on number of results submitted rather than unique systems seen, and there's somebody constantly running regression tests on a server with that Matrox chipset?

          Core count is presumably logical core count, yes?

            New Years Resolution: try to get 2560x1600 on that resolution list. Because 1080p being the best of the average resolutions is awful.
