In complementing the earlier article about the top changes of the Linux 3.14 kernel that will be released in the days ahead, here's a list of our many exciting Linux 3.14 kernel benchmarks that have been conducted to date.

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.
