For those not caught up in their recent Phoronix reading but are curious about the Linux 3.14 kernel performance in critical subsystems, here's a look at the various Linux 3.14 benchmarks we have carried out thus far... A few more articles will be done with Linux 3.14 vanilla before we start getting excited in running Linux 3.15 Git.
- AMD Kabini APU benchmarks from a system that can be found for as low as ~$30 USD with dual-core 1.0GHz APU and motherboard. The system was running Linux 3.14 on Fedora 20 for this article.
- Btrfs mount option testing from the Linux 3.14 kernel in the latest state of this next-generation Linux file-system.
- Linux 3.14 SSD benchmarks with Btrfs, EXT4, and F2FS.
- Linux 3.14 HDD benchmarks with Btrfs, EXT4, and XFS.
- Intel Ivy Bridge benchmarks of recent Linux kernel releases.
- Intel Bay Trail NUC benchmarks with the Linux 3.14 kernel.
- 11-way low-end open-source graphics comparison using Linux 3.14 Git.
- A disk drive review comparison with various HDDs running Btrfs on Linux 3.14.
