    Phenom's were $250 when they came out. Athlon's are $50.

    Compare the Phenom vs Kaveri 7850K if you want an actual "similar-price-point" comparison, and even then the Phenom was $70 more at launch...

    They want everything possible to be BSD, but rewriting the kernel driver? Probably way too expensive both time-wise and financially for them to even consider it.

    Kinda what I was thinking... Wait for the next revision or two revisions from now, DDR4 dual channel RAM with one of these style APU's? Nice low power, high performance little machine you could build.

    I think its more along the lines of people think LLVM should be faster eventually and could be made to be faster. LLVM brings to the table quick compilation, ontop of a full compiler that can be...

    Bad idea to use sed in case there is more to the upgrade than just package updates. Upgrade tools can handle "weird" changes that may be beyond a simple "update this package or remove this one."

    Possibly because of MSAA being disabled before vs enabled now. Thats guaranteed to drop performance quite a bit.

    Total shot in the dark, but maybe. Make sure you have downloaded, installed, and selected the VLC Backend for Phonon. Most distros ship Gstreamer has the default backend, but the official recommended...

    UFW is unmaintained last time I checked out Arch, and has been for awhile.

    As far as Firewalld... AFAIK, ufw had to stop and restart the firewall to load the new configuration, which could make...

    720p, and 900p seem playable. Even 1080p in a couple cases. While yes, 60+ FPS would be desirable, the Steam Machines competitors are consoles which typically shoot for 30fps. Looking at this article...

    Just read the whitepaper, VERY nice job =).

    Glad to hear that your min-max allocator was merged into the kernel, and I hope that your work on the AI will lead to optimizations in the driver.

    What the other guy said. Gentoo and Arch (and derivs) are the only two distros I know where its relatively easy to recompile all packages on your system-- eg: built into package manager. Gentoo its...

    Wait until the A8-7600 comes out. Thats the 'mainstream' Kaveri chip. The 7850k is the unlocked flagship, so its even more of an apples-to-oranges situation.
