    Yes, sorry, brainfart. I think someone mentioned WebM in a comment on Imgur and then Creak's comment triggered that memory and I repeated it. It's MPEG-4 AVC a.k.a "h.264" in an MP4 container.

    Imgur just recently started converting GIFs to Webm. They're calling it "GIFV"

    "Denver" is just the name of the core(s), not the whole chip. Nvidia will likely use the same core in successive chips - I'm guessing a quad core next. Then there might be a chip with a Maxwell-based...

    ...aaaaand it's in, as of three hours ago. I don't have a RPi and am still hesitant to buy a Broadcom-based device, but this is a good step forward. Now if only more interesting ARM boards (with...

    Damn, alright. But DEFLATE uses LZ77 first, before Huffman. It's not just Huffman on its own.

    Okay, but what is MPD? In this context I'm assuming it's not the Music Player Daemon...

    PNG uses deflate/LZ, not Huffman.
    And JPEG also converts RGB images into a YUV colour space, which allows for chroma sub-sampling, saving even more space.

    Over 4.5 years. If you meant the 64-bit A7, that'd be 9 months now.

    Um, Israel? But it costs several $Billion/year in "aid" and using their veto power in the UN Security Council to quash any criticism of Israel.

    Boy, is this discussion getting off-topic!

    So how is radionsi compared to the mature r600g? Is it recommended I start looking for a GCN card to replace my lowly (and fanless) 6570?
  12. This was more a comparison of compilers in Debian...

    This was more a comparison of compilers in Debian 7.5 vs 8.0 (i.e GCC 4.7 vs 4.8) than kFreeBSD vs Linux.

    Why no filesystem benchmarks? Does PTS include benchmarks for forking/threading and...

    It's running on my Cubietruck, thanks to jwrdegoede and mripard (and all the other sunxi contributors):

    Because this is based on Intel NUC boards. There is no i7 NUC. There is no Xeon NUC.



    I guess because there are no good, affordable, server-class ARM boards. Most are either lowish-end...

    But is RadeonSI supporting all of the features that these benchmarks use on Catalyst? Haven't we seen the situation before where the FOSS driver gets higher performance, but only because it's not...

    Why test with such a fast HDD? A slower HDD (even a regular 7200RPM one) would have revealed more about how efficiently each filesystem arranges data on disk.

    I'll be getting a pair of WD Red's...

    No, but Cortex-A15's aren't too shabby. It's a shame they didn't include more RAM seeing as it supports LPAE and virtualisation.
    Not really. It's certainly not at the cheap end of the spectrum,...
  19. Why on Earth were the graphics/games benchmarks...

    Why on Earth were the graphics/games benchmarks included? Anyone still using these CPUs (and caring about GPU speed) would almost certainly have a separate graphics card, not relying on the GPU in...

    It's not entirely fair to say the FPUs are "shared". Each dual-core "module" has a 256-bit wide SIMD unit. Each core can execute 128-bit SSE (or 64-bit MMX) instructions independently. It's only...
