Gigabyte's Z97-HD3 Z97 Motherboard Is Running Well On Linux

As I wrote about when Intel launched the Z97 chipset earlier this month in preparation for the Haswell Refresh and Broadwell CPUs, the Linux compatibility for the new motherboards powered by the Intel 9-Series chipsets should be in good shape. One of the motherboards I have been testing since then is the Gigabyte Z97-HD3.

I Lost Interest With Intel's New, Fan-Less Bay Trail NUC

Last month Intel announced a new, fan-less Intel NUC Kit, the DE3815TYKHE and it featured an Intel Atom E3815 SoC. While at first I immediately planned to buy one, now that they're available, I've changed my purchase order instead to another DN2820FYKH NUC Kit for Linux usage.

Intel P-State Driver Might Still Be Causing Wonky Linux Performance

Last year on earlier versions of the Linux kernel we've uncovered performance issues around Intel's P-State / CPUfreq driver that was causing adverse performance in certain configurations. While it looked like most of the Intel CPU clocking issues were resolved in more recent versions of the Linux kernel, it looks like some Linux performance problems are present in Linux 3.14.
