Besides a 40-way graphics card comparison between the open and closed-source Linux drivers for both NVIDIA and ATI/AMD graphics processors, there's also a number of other interesting articles coming up on Phoronix. Here's some of what you can expect to see next month on Phoronix.

With XDC2011 Chicago coming up in just two weeks, followed immediately by my yearly pilgrimage to Munich for Oktoberfest and the annual Phoronix meet-up, I will be gone for three weeks. As a result, many of the featured articles for the next five weeks have already been written. (The news, of course, will still be written daily.)

Some of the upcoming articles of interest are listed below.

- Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 (Llano Fusion) motherboard review.
- PowerColor Radeon HD 6450 graphics card review.
- New LLVMpipe benchmarks from Mesa 7.12-devel Git and LLVM 3.0 SVN.
- New encrypted home benchmarks from Ubuntu 11.10.
- Intel Core i3 2120 CPU review.
- Intel Core i5 2400S CPU review.
- Btrfs benchmarks from the Serial ATA 3.0 OCZ Vertex 3 SSD.
- The large graphics card comparison with open and closed-source drivers, split by vendor.
- A look at WattOS and whether it saves any power or improves performance on older hardware compared to upstream Ubuntu.
- Does the Unity desktop in Ubuntu 11.10 still suck?
- Ubuntu 11.10 boot performance.
- A look at running Btrfs on an old 32-bit Linux system with various mount options.

Follow my Twitter to stay up to date on future developments. There will also be several days worth of videos from XDC2011 Chicago. With the annual X.Org Developers' Conference taking place just about 20 kilometers away (I am the event organizer), there should be good audio and video feeds recorded for Phoronix. Plus I'll be posting any interesting news from the event.
