  1. Motherboard issue

    According to Asrock's website the FX-9590 is not in the compatibility list for this motherboard. The specification also says "Supports CPU up to 140W" but the 9590 is 220W. The weird performance...

    I don't understand how you can conclude that it's the SSD that makes deadline faster since you didn't test any HDD. Maybe it's the same story with a HDD and the difference between the schedulers lies...

    Cayman is VLIW4 hardware and since quite some time benchmarks show that it's not as optimized as VLIW5 with the open source stack.
  4. VLIW5 and HD6000

    Yes, to me this benchmark is more about the VLIW5 architecture than HD6000 cards. The title is a bit strange in this regard as all the cards benchmarked here use the same architecture as HD5000,...

    Well actually the flags beyond "-march=native -o2" don't necessarily improve application performance. It might help for some, but hurt for others. From my experience, it's mostly kernel settings that...

    What about the APUs ?

    It would have been nice to see numbers about the A8 APus, since the GPU is supposed to help the CPU with this kind of task on these devices.

    I don't think it is such a bad CPU. They added a lot of features compared to Phenoms : SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, XOP, FMA4, power gating, and I believe this adds transistors. The number of transistors...

    Some Linux results

    I don't know if this was already pointed out, but a French website tested the FX-8150 under Ubuntu 11.04 using PTS. The results are here :

    There's nothing to be excited about, unless you use lzo compression or anything that btrfs provides while the others don't.

    I'm a bit disappointed because I installed Fedora on btrfs to use the...

    Indeed it is good news, keep up the good work !

    Still, I think it is just sad that this isn't being worked on for R300 cards, where i think it would be the most needed because CPUs from that era...

    Well, to be more precise about the USB 3 port, the ASUS support told me that it's an option thus it's not present on all models despite being advertised by most (if not all) vendors.

    Okay, so I finally bought the laptop (Asus N61JV), and by using the acpi_call module as you suggested I was indeed able to turn off the unsused nVidia GPU.

    Is the Nvidia GPU powered up under Linux ? I know I won't be able to use it, so i don't want...

    I forgot to mention that I'm running the 6.13.0 driver, so it should be alright.

    With classic mesa, I get about 30 FPS...

    I registered just to point out that KMS is also slower for me, but I deduce from what said bridgman that it's probably caused by my weak P4 CPU.

    What bothers me the most is that r300g is also...
