    Default Linux 3.17 Doesn't Boost Ivy Bridge Performance Numbers

    Phoronix: Linux 3.17 Doesn't Boost Ivy Bridge Performance Numbers

    Last week I ran some performance tests that found Sandy Bridge was faster with the Linux 3.17 kernel and these performance gains with the still in-development kernel extended beyond just graphics. Curious, I ran some tests this weekend to see whether Intel Ivy Bridge processors were also running faster with Linux 3.17 compared to Linux 3.16 stable...

    Could you please get into the habit of including a line underneath every picture to tell us what is shown in the picture? You know, like they do in news papers and paper magazines?

    This way we (your readers) do not need to guess what it is you are trying to show us and we do not end up looking as stupid as if we were on an modern art exhibition, and you might even start putting better pictures into your articles. Who knows?

    What is this black thing anyway? A USB hub, a router, a harddisk, an audio converter, a mini-grill?

    On the topic:

    Ah, now the picture makes sense. It does look a bit unusual for a PC. Anyhow, thanks for the info.

    Thought for sure it was a router at first, but didn't quite understand what a router had to do with Ivy Bridge performance, unless a router was packing that kind of hardware for some reason.

    But in any case, cool.
