    What happens if you change cpufreq's up_threshold to something lower than 95%?

    Try:
    # echo 50 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
    (Sets cpufreq to scale higher when load hits...

    Don't do your driver development kind of things...

    Don't do your driver development kind of things on a machine with irreplaceable data. The hardware is expendable-ish. Your data, priceless.

    My PowerPC 603e-based Mac quit playing nice with Linux a looooong time ago. I tried to put Debian 4 on it to get files off of it (no USB support at all!), after it had been out of service for a...
  5. "Release the docs and there will be drivers"...

    "Release the docs and there will be drivers" worked much better when the hardware was much simpler. Nowadays, it helps a lot to have a driver team that knows not only how to read specs, but how to...

    My motherboard has a feature called "Processor Downcore." I can set the CPU to only use 3/2/1 cores (or 6-the board was meant for Phenom I, not Thuban). Maybe there's a similar one on an Intel...

    40-60Hz?

    I think G-sync was meant to go with 120-144Hz monitors, which help with mouse lag.

    It would be really nice if someone implemented Shadowplay with this.

    I've noticed someone has gone in with Valgrind and started looking for and fixing memory sloppiness.
  10. I know someone who still likes to use iBook G4s,...

    I know someone who still likes to use iBook G4s, which also use this chipset.

    Nitpick: I don't think there was ever a 64MB version of Rage 128. I think it was more like 8/16MB (the iBook has 8).
  11. I have an HD 4670. It still works like it did...

    I have an HD 4670. It still works like it did when I first got it. Open-source drivers are pretty good for that card from what I'm reading here, but I'm running Debian Wheezy, and don't want to go...

    Heh, Loki and some others made their jobs easier. Kind of. Updating 10-year-old code is fun :D
  13. Legacy driver....

    Legacy driver.

    It probably won't work nicely with newer X.Org. It works well enough with Debian Wheezy.
  14. If it shows 29/30 and 59/60, it sounds like vsync...

    If it shows 29/30 and 59/60, it sounds like vsync is on with the occasional stutter. Vsync means your card will run at a fraction of your monitor's refresh rate (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5). Most LCD are...

    With Debian's aging open-source drivers, it's not very good for games, but at least xscreensaver behaves itself. Unvanquished won't run, and a lot of Wine programs will refuse to work.
    I haven't...

    Performance-wise, well enough.

    My biggest problem has been with xscreensaver+Catalyst. The small gripe is it won't show the password box to unlock your screen. The big one is it occasionally...

    My HD 4670 is still sufficient for lightweight games. No, it won't run Crysis.

    Maybe next big release I can skip Catalyst so xscreensaver can stop crashing?

    Question: What were the clocks and timings of the memory? Memory bandwidth makes a very big difference in the performance of an AMD APU's graphics component, and latency makes a small-but-measurable...

    I guess now we find out if Steamroller could possibly have posed a threat to Haswell as a pure CPU/no integrated graphics.

    Wait, Phoronix has popups? No wonder people are using adblock. If we want people to tolerate the ads, the popups must die.
