Lack Of Broadwell RC6 Has Us Looking Toward Linux 3.15

While Intel's upcoming Broadwell processors will have proper graphics driver support with the Linux 3.14 kernel (and updated user-space components), for those concerned about power usage, there's still some very important bits that do not look like they will land until at least the Linux 3.15 kernel.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS vs. Ubuntu 14.04 - Ivy Bridge GL Tests

For those current users of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS curious about how the performance of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will be if upgrading, I've been in the process of running some preview benchmarks to share the current situation of the Trusty Tahr in its present development form. Some early results to share this weekend run a few OpenGL benchmarks while comparing the state of Ubuntu 12.04.3 to Ubuntu 14.04 right now when using Intel "Ivy Bridge" HD Graphics 4000.
