    I would totally expect the operating system to be more responsive under load with hyperthreading turned on, but actually improving the performance of said load is very inconsistent. At any time,...

    Good article. You did a great job of showing the difference between 8 semi-real cores vs. hyperthreading.

    I agree with a lot of what you say, of course there are inconsistencies. However, compared to other benchmark sites, like Anandtech continuing to use Futuremark even after the entire industry cast...

    Right. This article tells us that if you use modern software that scales well with semi-real cores, that Bulldozer just may be the best bang for the buck. Of course, you chose to take one tiny part...

    WTH is wrong with you people? AMD clearly has a more advanced, forward thinking architecture, and Intel fanboys think if that translates into doing well in any benchmark, that it's "unfair".

    Whoever told you that SMT makes a difference lied.

    The sure-fire sign of a rigged benchmark is anywhere SMT actually scales anywhere near like a real core. It's not a real thread capable of real...

    Totally agree. I've deployed Ubuntu on plenty of desktops and servers, but I've avoided the LTS's, and just opt for the latest release that is, from my personal experience, stable. At the risk of...

    Most people have an OEM license, so they're S.O.L. on transferring it to a VM unless they are sufficiently L337 enough to do a physical-to-virtual conversion, and then be able to fake all of the...

    x64 isn't really the same thing as SSE/AVX/FMA, etc... x64 has more to do with memory management than anything else, the other instructions are mostly aimed at improving instruction-per-clock.

    I disagree. Intel regularly uses it's monopoly to force it's technology on everybody, and the constant influx of SSE instructions are what keep the x86 monopoly going. AMD could come up with their...

    Fair enough. I tried OpenSUSE with KDE a couple years ago, back when Ubuntu 9.04 was a no-go on the PC I had at the time. I was able to run OpenSUSE, but I was horribly unimpressed with it, and...

    Being a man of my word, I tested Kubuntu 11.10 on the aforementioned Llano desktop. I waited for 11.10, as the 3.0 kernel was necessary to have working FOSS drivers for Llano.

    The guest additions have been a big no-no in Linux for about a year or so. Virtualbox-ose works well for me, and the Windows guest additions work well, but I don't even waste my time on the Linux...

    All of the major distros take the time to make a KDE spin, which they certainly don't have to. The reason they don't make it their main, default edition that they recommend you to download is...

    Could you recommend specific versions of specific distros that you'd like me to test?

    I do think that having to do that many tweaks reinforces the notion that KDE doesn't work well on AMD hardware.
