A lot of new and interesting content is inbound on Phoronix, besides all of the exciting work on Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 and other open-source Linux hardware activities.

Now that I'm en route back to America after spending the last month in Russia working on Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 (see the very early walk through of the PTS 5.0 Plavsk GUI), it's time for some new benchmarking. Even while I was away there still were new Linux hardware reviews, benchmarking articles, and at least a handful of articles each day... In fact, in 2013 on Phoronix I wrote 270+ full-length featured articles and nearly 3,000 news items / smaller articles.

Now that I'm on my way back, it's time for some new and interesting tests to make up for my lack of playing with any new and exciting hardware in the past month.

In the next week on Phoronix there will be AMD Kaveri Linux benchmarks -- in fact, a lot of them, now that AMD PR has decided to work again with Phoronix. Plus there will be a new Intel Core i5 Haswell review possibly out as soon as this weekend -- I picked up a different i5 Haswell CPU for part of the automated Phoromatic / OpenBenchmarking.org test farm and to add to the Kaveri comparison. There's also some motherboard and SSD Linux hardware reviews coming up in the days ahead.

Any other benchmarks -- be it software or hardware -- that you would like to see in the weeks ahead? I have a few other trips coming up plus lots of work still to do on Phoronix Test Suite 5.0, so it will still be an extremely busy time, but now is your chance to put in a fresh round of requests via the forums or @MichaelLarabel on Twitter.
