    Bugs in Processors

    I recently came across "bugs in Intel Processors". see here. What Intel calls "Specification Update" is in fact a paper that lists known bugs in the Intel Core M Processor family (Broadwell ?). A...
  2. Please test also with OpenBSD and OpenWRT

    @Michael,
    Would it be possible that you also test these boxes with OpenBSD and OpenWRT?
    If someone wants to use these boxes for example as firewall, I would assume that the operating system of...

    There IS documentation around: Wikipedia lists 11, AMD itself lists 9 games and one game engine with MANTLE support. Hexus.net reported in june 17 games with confirmed Mantle support. I don't think...
  5. There are still many good games out there with...

    There are still many good games out there with only d3d9. Not to speak about "serious" applications. Many of the d3d10/d11 applications have a d3d9 fallback mode. So, I see d3d9 as a major stepping...

    No documentation as of yet. There is a FAQ, a whitepaper and the intend to publish the specification in late 2014. Go ahead and nag them!
  7. When do we get to see Mantle?

    To quote from the commit message of the later removed Direct3D 10/11 COM state tracker:

    It's just a logical follow-up question: When will we see Mantle? or Metal on Linux?

    For completness sake:...
  8. Successors of Truecrypt

    There is currently quite some activity on the TCnext website. Two candidates are discussed: VeraCrypt and CipherShed. VeraCrypt raises questions because it is hosted on CodePlex (Microsoft owned...
  9. german lesson

    You misquote this article on glolem.de. They did *not* have boards going up in smoke. In that article in question, they first discuss the two events at phoronix and legitreviews. Then, at the end of...
  10. Video

    At this early stage there is already one conclusion to be drawn:

    Always have a video camera set up and running when powering on a new mobo/cpu/graca combination.

    I guess that nearly all...

    My exprience is the opposite. The max temperatures for GPU's are usually higher than CPU. IIRC, for CPU's, the upper limit is around 70 deg Celsius. While GPU's are around 90 degrees. The AMD Radeon...

    If I may chime in here ...

    I'd like to make one point here: Do not just give an advice or instruction, educate your "clients" to the point that they *understand* the possible consequences. I know that americans generally...
  13. Palm Grease

    Some months ago Michael's articles used to be a lot more neutral. It changed when AMD stopped to send samples down his address. He has since become a complete AMD basher. To me this looks like...
  14. No myth!

    Could be that you're biased by your nvidia experience. On the AMD side these drivers *do* appear out of nowhere. Last weekend the radeonsi drivers appeared in debian/testing. So much for your myth....
  15. Stop the AMD bashing please!

    This doesn't help any one.
  16. Well, I don't think this is unfair. I understand...

    Well, I don't think this is unfair. I understand very well that somebody *can* be swallowed up by his work without him realizing. Just look at the pace of articles. It's currently >= 10 a day! Its...
  17. Dear Michael,

    Michael,
    I've been a follower of phoronix for the last 3+ years. I've seen you increasing the pace of new articles produced. I'm a workaholic too. But I've had to reduce my daily worktime to 10...

    @droidhacker: Do you imply that Qualcomm has now several dozens of $5000/hour lawyers knocking at their door? If this is the case, then I be able to sleep a lot better tonight (with a happy grin on...
  19. If there are no fines ...

    ... can we just issue a DMCA notice for the Microsoft website? Just for fun? And take it back after a week or so, saying "Sorry, was a mistake...".
  20. ... to get this discussion a bit more balanced.

    Public call:
    Is an experienced AMD developer out there that could write a similar test suite with the aim to utterly destroy NVIDIA?

    ... we could then ask Michael Larabel to include this new test...
