    I wonder: if AMD were to present the cores to the OS as SMT (hyperthreading), rather than as full cores... would that help the performance?

    Now we just need somebody to get the Synaptics Linux driver to uncripple all the multitouch touchpads that are crippled in firmware. There's one magic Windows driver that does this -- enables...

    Here's something weird that happens with 10.10, that I've never seen before: 10.10 seems to somehow limit my backlight brightness to something like 25% or 50% of the maximum brightness. In fact, it...
