    Intel last in the pack yet again. With the Exynos Octa core, Snapdragon S800 and Tegra 4 as well as the Renesas APE6, Intel's offering seems way too anemic. Considering that these ARM SoCs is what...

    Whipped? The 1.4 Ghz A9 quad core performed equal to or better on most tests. Performance per watt was unable to be measured but knowing that the TDP of the Atom is 13w and the total draw for the...

    Awesome early preview. Now I was wondering if the wonderful folks at Phoronix would be able to test the A10-5800k in a crossfire config using the latest Catalyst drivers? Would be really nice to...

    Personally it would be far easier if Ubuntu for ARM would either come with XFCE or classic Gnome as opposed to Unity. With all the trouble involved with unity on top of the need for dedicated 3D...

    OK. That's all fine and well but even when equally clocked the dual core Cortex A9 does a fine job of squashing the Atom. It too was underclocked to 1 Ghz from its' native 1.2 Ghz. With that said...

    Seems like Valve disagrees. They have had excellent results porting Steam and L4D2 to Linux. As a matter of fact there was an article a couple of days ago where they have stated that the Linux...

    Well nVidia will eventually open up their drivers and gain wider acceptance or fade into obscurity in the linux landscape. Ultimately it is their choice.

    Me thinks that there is more to all of this than meets the eye. HP and Dell would not be investing in ARM micro servers as heavily as they are without reason. Aside from the Intel Centerton and the...

    What exactly do you mean by same performance? Micro servers are being built for specific workloads and are showing nearly the same performance for a fraction of the power usage. A Pandaboard ES or...

    ARM, particularly quad core Cortex A9 and A15s are going to be VERY competitive for the low end netbook and nettop market. Once the 64 bit ARMv8 SoCs are released it will be an all new ball game as...

    Superuser.apk does NOT silently give root permission to anyone or any app. It will prompt the first time an app requests it and will continue to prompt unless you tell it to save your selection. So...

    Seeing that the OMAP 4460 is running at only 1.2 Ghz and is using a PowerVR SGX540 for it's GPU these results are VERY impressive. The Cortex A9 can be clocked up to 1.8 Ghz and in a quad core...
