    I'd personally love to see a KVM/Xen/ESX shoot out.

    From my own testing, VMWare ESX has pretty awful performance, particularly under load. I/O tasks in particular are horrendous. Yet you try...

    Definitely would like to see some benchmarks.

    Where I work we've been considering this for a few very demanding, write-intensive database systems. Obviously there's considerable risk with using...

    Things that affect me as a RHEL customer:

    1) (Already been mentioned, but I'll expand) a decent Single Sign On implementation. It took ages for FreeIPA to get off the ground, but 2.0 has finally...

    The hype of this one is going over my head. I've never gotten excited about arbitrary version numbering systems.

    It reminds me a bit of when Slackware jumped from 4.0 to 7.0. :)...

    As others have mentioned, it's a hell of a lot faster. Although for me the true advantages are:

    1) Choice of "payload" - the payload is the thing that's force-loaded into memory on boot. With...

    I PXE boot into the net-installer at home and work. It makes life a hell of a lot easier for not needing to find media or a USB key to deal with.

    I get that full installers are still necessary...

    Very interested to see the results.

    I regularly need to performance test Windows against Linux/UNIX for crypto speed and 3D rendering speeds for various clients. Access to PTS will make this a...

    Will Phoronix be doing a WINE to Crossover comparison? I'd be curious to see the extra features and performance differences.

    OpenGL is single threaded (indeed, multi-threading any realtime API is damn near impossible).

    The benchmark is designed to stress your GPU (video card), but with that said it will need the CPU to...

    Excellent review guys. SPECViewPerf is a standard benchmark for me and the industry I work in (I am the sysadmin at a small studio called Kanuka).

    Currently Kubuntu Linux on NVidia hardware is...

    Am I right in assuming that means 80 cores running at 80MHz each?

    That's not really 6.26GHz, but even still I'm impressed that Intel are doing such research so far in advance. The clockspeed race...

    The title type made me think for a minute they were adding XFS support also. :)

    XFS is my current file system of choice for high performance file servers. Plus it works ever so nicely with LVM.

    Cheers for the reply.

    As mentioned, I know it's a lot of extra work (SPECViewPerf is certainly not a short benchmark), so I appreciate the fact that you're looking into it.

    I've just found this...
  15. Possibility of adding SPECViewPerf scores to future graphics tests?

    First off, great site. I've only just stumbled across it, and as a long time Linux user (getting on 11 years now) it's nice to see a site full of benchmarks that aren't 3DMark on a Windows box.
