Phoronix: Early Benchmarks Of The Linux 3.14 Kernel
Now that most of "the scary stuff" for Linux 3.14 has been taken care of, it's time to benchmark this next major kernel release. The Linux 3.14 kernel has many major features added so there's plenty of benchmarks abound while in this article is a comparison of the 3.12, 3.13, and 3.14 Git kernels from an Intel Ultrabook.
Are there so huge code changes, that it gets this much slower?
Yeah I thought that multi-queue block I/O thingy was supposed to result in huge performance gains?
That seemed a bit... oversold.
Is it time for a profanity-laced tirade directed at Linus? You would think it wouldn't be left up to Phoronix to keep track of these things.
