    *chuckle* X hasn't changed much in the last 4 years since I moved out of AMD.

    Federated configuration (X.org) helps, but then you have the user based (.config) and driver (amdpcsdb) specific...

    Hi mitcoes,

    Although these results may not be the ones that Michael used, they look to be related. If you look at any result page on OpenBenchmarking, most of them have the link in the "OPC" tab...

    Bah, on the GPU side AMD has hit the 2 Billion transitor mark in 2009. Last years model was 2.6, and this years model will probably be more :). And they've been selling quite nicely on that side of...

    As implied by shrey, a lot of applications are naive about the way they deal with multiple displays (in any configuration). For example, flash only understands the first viewport in RANDR. I...

    This is a regression in system behavior that is caused by a change committed to the kernel. The buggy BIOS existed previously, but the bug was exposed to the end user via the kernel change.

    It all depends on what you are comparing - or the variant part of the configuration under test. For these tests, Michael is comparing hardware against a set of pre-existing tests. The x264 test for...

    Ah.. So you are the owner of that system :).

    I intend to do a openbenchmarking.org blog posting of that one.. Can you email me matthew @ phoronix.com to discuss?

    Those steps are not part of the framework itself. My involvement is primarily Phoronix Test Suite & OpenBenchmarking, not Phoronix.com. I believe that Michael does the system prep manually. We do...

    My view at this stage, is that the application of aging or similar approaches to position the system under test (SUT) to be in a particular form is something that is for the most part outside the...

    Has this been previously done? The impressions tool presentation talks only about making a filesystem look similar to an old one. It didn't actually attempt to benchmark it within that paper. I...

    Could you explain this further?

    The 1/2/4/6/6+HT are configured in the BIOS, although I would expect could be hot-unplugged in the kernel as well.

    Feel free to reproduce the test results (that is what PTS is for), and then tune as per the guides. I agree that you went into the considerable depth about what should be done, but didn't do it. ...
