    Okay. They might give it a higher priority if they know it's live on the web all over Phoronix. (Not that Phoronix is the biggest site ever, but it's considerably less niche than running the PTS...

    I can confirm the text alignment problems with Opera, though I'm using a somewhat outdated version at the moment.

    If you can't/don't fix it or work around the problem, at least file a bug report...

    Er, wait. Why then are there World of Padman benchmarks, which also show a huge performance improvement? Am I misinterpreting something?

    Yeah, and details on how to install it... :) it would make me very happy if UT2004 were to become playable on my i945, and this seems like the kind of potential-speedup which could maybe-possibly do...

    Ah, it's a virtualization thing. Makes sense.

    If it's not addressable by the kernel (doesn't live in memory), and it's fast enough to be worth using a cache (doesn't live on the disk)... where, exactly, do the contents of the cache live?

    I'm not sure if the inclusion of a plain HDD was per my request, but either way, thanks. The results were similar on some tests, but also very different on some others, so I think it's a good idea to...

    Wait, so which of the following is legal, and which illegal?

    - Possessing source code containing patented technology
    - Distributing source code containing patented technology
    - Compiling source...

    I'd really appreciate it if you could use old-fashioned mechanical disks for benchmarking at least half of the time. Considerably more people have them than SSDs, and the performance profiles are...

    Given that graphics is an "embarrassingly parallel" problem, shouldn't it be possible -- theoretically -- to achieve very nearly linear scaling with the number of CPU cores? I'm not saying it would...

    A lot of the questions were multiple choice, yet you're using pie charts with the percentages adding up to 100 -- presumably by just adding all the responses together, and then dividing each one by...

    Can this be set per-application? I assume yes, right?

    Because plain-old desktop 3D effects would, I think, be extremely glad to have this. Not very demanding at all, and aliasing tends to be very...

    I totally read "New York".

    Thought it was some kind of codename.

    I don't think it's either a CPU scheduler nor a disk scheduler issue. If it were a problem with the disk scheduler, it would only affect other processes also accessing the disk, which plainly isn't...

    Lagginess under heavy disk access is like the original sin of the Linux kernel. I'm guessing it's something structural, because if it were easy to fix they'd have fixed it by now, right? They can't...

    Great news. Why bother with usermode support for new hardware, though?

    Yeah, that's my main concern as well. Disk space is cheap, RAM less so.

    It will happen, but it might happen a little or a lot late. Basically, yes, nvidia designed the cards, and yes, they will run C++; what they're alleging is that they're having a ton of trouble trying...
