    Exactly my point about AMD's place these days in the industry. And yes, my current desktop is an i5-4670k, it sits at a sweet spot where pricing is not too high, IPC and there fore single core...
  2. Wrong game for AMD

    I can't believe they put thisthing out there. At 220W TDP , let's compare with the FX-9590 vs i7-4790K:


    The AMD chip is only 13% cheaper ($340 vs 300 currently at newegg)
    The Intel chip is...
  3. Errata

    Im my previous post I mentioned Crouton for the wrong machine. We use it on the Chromebook of course, not for the desktop.
  4. I agree. All my systems at home use Intel /...

    I agree. All my systems at home use Intel / Linux. The desktop is an i5-4670k, graphics work just wonderfully, even for my kids to steam-game via Crouton (sure, not everything is maxed out, but it...

    This is really really stupid of MSI. A BIOS is what you need in order to load an OS. It should not fscking need an OS to begin with. They should just ship the ROM's, compressed as zip if they must,...

    Absolutely.

    I also wonder how low you can limbo with AMD, meaning, would a cheap FX and a low end dedicated ATI graphics card give a comparable package than an i7 Haswell for less money? Part of...

    I just tested on my Haswell i5 system (I run something very similar, Oibaf ppa and kernel 3.16.1). I get in one of the unigine tests a white screen and about 100 fps (it is normally about 15 fps).
  9. Yeah, I thought the same. A lot of the time,...

    Yeah, I thought the same. A lot of the time, these amazing improvements have to do with a slow feature actually not supported in the "fast" software stack (say, in the fast test, antialising is not...

    Intrestingly, this suggests that Haswell (as opposed to Sandy Brdige) will probably see little if any performance impact with Linux 3.17 ...
  11. LOL! My hat off to you, thank you for the laugh!

  12. One of the bigger questions, I believe, is...

    One of the bigger questions, I believe, is whether (or when) these wonderful in-die GPU's will be good enough to ditch dedicated cards. I think they kind of are there if you are willing to play games...

    Sorry, I meant to say "current Haswell desktop"
  14. I am on the same page. I bought my current...

    I am on the same page. I bought my current desktop, well, the parts, right after launch (a month later, maybe?). The (then) current Ubuntu release _worked_ to some extent, but with no acceleration,...

    So, does Android ship a heavily customized kernel? I still have to see a _current_ arm tablet that doesn't use a _really_ old linux kernel (like 3.4).

    Thank you both (CTown and TheBlackCat). It seems like kdelibs 4 and 5 will coexist from December on, for about 6 months. They might call it 14.12, possibly indicating monthly releases? Sort of like a...

    Yes, what I wonder is when are KDE SC or KDE Applications going to catch up. I googled for a 5.0 version of either one and the only thing I found was a 3 year old post by Aaron Seigo. Anyone knows...

    Let me be clear, you can write commercial open source applications. The proper term is "proprietary" vs "open source", even though, many times, people use "commercial" as equivalent to...

    Yeah, I think they mean "commercial" as in "real job". Meaning, a Suse, Canonical, RedHat, etc employee would be a "commercial" developer.

    I wonder what's the size of the SteamOS team by now!

    I wonder if that means overclocking? I've been trying on and off on my Haswell Rig. TRying to overclock clearly affect permormance (so it is "doing something"), but the wrong way (everything runs...
