The Intel Core i7 5960X Continues Running Great On Linux

For those able to spend $1000+ (USD) on a processor, the Intel Core i7 5960X is a fantastic offering that is still leaving me pleased with the performance after extensive Linux testing.

Intel Haswell-ULT Graphics Don't Change Much With Linux 3.17, Mesa 10.4

The Linux 3.17 kernel that's currently under development does provide many new features overall but for those using the Intel HD Graphics of Haswell-ULT chips, there doesn't appear to be much in the way of any performance improvements and at least no regressions. Likewise, Mesa 10.4 isn't doing too much for the Haswell hardware on the matter of frame-rates.

Intel Skylake's MPX Is Closer To Providing Linux Memory Protection

Besides Intel publicly working on Skylake "Gen9" graphics support for Linux, Intel open-source developers are also working on other areas of Skylake hardware enablement for Linux. Work on supporting the Intel Memory Protection Extensions (MPX) that are new to the Skylake micro-architecture are still being revised for the Linux kernel and the many other operating system code-bases that need to be updated to work with this security feature.

Intel's Core i7 5960X Is Fast & Wonderful Under Linux

After my first X99 motherboard burned up in a strange situation, since yesterday my Core i7 5960X Haswell-E system started working wonderfully with Linux after using a different motherboard. I've been hammering the system hard for the past day and no X99/i7-5960X issues have come about (albeit I've refrained from doing any overclocking or DDR4 tweaking yet) and this high-end $1000+ (USD) CPU is running great under Linux.
