Today's been another productive day in the continuous quest of Phoronix and its goals pertaining to furthering Linux hardware support and benchmarking.

In continuation of last week's article regarding What OpenBenchmarking.org Is About & Why It Matters and then this weekend's post about three weeks to SCALE where Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" and OpenBenchmarking.org are slated to launch, here's some screenshots from today demonstrating another unannounced, work-in-progress feature.

What is all of this data? Hundreds of dots? Comparisons of multiple vendors? Phoronix Test Suite scatter plots?

I have said that OpenBenchmarking.org will change Linux benchmarking (and other operating systems too directly or indirectly), may very well cause a bigger impact than Phoronix.com, and that I may even be stepping down from my editorial role at Phoronix.

OpenBenchmarking.org already has a lot to offer when it comes to advanced software/hardware product search capabilities, integrated pricing / performance support, advanced analytics capabilities, commenting / collaboration abilities, a portal for hosting your own tests and suites, and much more. However, this latest work illustrated by these early, work-in-progress screenshots demonstrate yet another alpha feature and it's certainly a lot different than anything else we have showcased. It's a lot of data being displayed, but it's just the start. And per my usual requirements for the Phoronix Test Suite, everything is fully automated down to vendor and product recognition / sorting.

To learn what this is all about and what the polished version looks like, come to the Southern California Linux Expo presentation at the end of the month in Los Angeles (information from the presentation will be made available on Phoronix afterwards) or the possible Phoronix Munich Meet-Up next week. Any computer enthusiast, hardware purchaser, or data junkie should find it to be very interesting.
