    Phoronix: What Would You Like Next On Phoronix In 2014?

    A lot of new and interesting content is inbound on Phoronix, besides all of the exciting work on Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 and other open-source Linux hardware activities...

            I would like you to actually enforce the rules and get rid of some of these trolls.

              I've mentioned it so many times now.... Metro Last Light on Linux doesn't even have an automated benchmark mode.

                My favourite article of the year was: "The Wayland Situation: Facts About X vs. Wayland"

                I think one way to improve the articles would be to go on irc chans and ask for more details to the devs, when the information are scarce.
                And perhaps get some devs writing some articles.

                  Yea, that was a pretty good article. We need to have Ericg write more of those *hint hint nudge nudge*

                    With writing all the articles myself, spending more time on each articles given the current advertising rates / premium users / AdBlock users is really not possible/economical.

                      * articles that explain things and shed light upon development, tech stuff or "political" things
                      * iirc. some kind of Kabini notebook test was planned
                      * the usual coverage of hardware stuff that you run in linux
                      * maybe add a few other things like NICs/WLAN chips, storage chips or something. Phoronix is very focused on pure benchmarking, but if something runs at all would be interesting, too. E.g. silly chips from Broadcomm or Marvell.
                      * maybe do some interviews with devs of games, freedom software (drivers, applications, games, kernel) or other interesting people from time to time (e.g. Gabe Newell, agd5f, Linus,... if you happen to meet them
                      * the Novena laptop!!!111

                      * Gentoo

                        so create equivalent of Fraps on GNU/linux

                          Benchmarks of kernel 3.13 with and without bfq and bfs (or: are these patchsets still needed with 3.13 ?), and an update about the current regression.

                            I would like to see more Hardware howto.
                            Like:
                            - Maximum powersavings with .. CPU.

                              Phoronix does not benchmark <insert game here> because it does not have a benchmark mode for Linux or has a benchmark that is hard to automate.

                              These common tests use the following opengl levels.

                              Unigine requires openGL 3.2 (and higher if available by the driver)
                              Xonotic openGL 2.0
                              Open Arena openGL ES

                              As you can see, they cover a selection of the openGL feature set. Performance improvements detected by these benchmarks are likely to indicate improvements in other games using the same opengl level.

                              If you want things to change. Please kindly ask game/benchmark developers to create a benchmark of their game engine that can be launched from the command line. Preferably one that is self contained so it can easily be transferred to the test machines.
