    Phoronix: Compare Your Linux System To The i7-5600U Broadwell X1 Carbon ThinkPad

    The third-generation Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon continues running well under Linux with its new Intel Core i7 5600U "Broadwell" processor sporting HD Graphics 5500. I'm enjoying this new ultrabook a lot and have been pushing it very hard for days with various Linux benchmarks...

    Does this automatically determine DRI_PRIME use?

    I'm about to run this benchmark on my laptop, which has working DRI_PRIME, will it use the intel GPU or switch to Radeon one?

      The PTS hardware information parsing might get a bit confused over DRI_PRIME=1 (haven't checked it lately to confirm) but PTS doesn't override any DRI_PRIME env var so the actual test programs should respect it as it's using all of your normal system libraries.

        Wow, that has closer to the legendary Thinkpad keyboard. I might consider that as my next laptop!

        Does the keyboard feel like the original Thinkpad keyboard?

        T and W series now sport an awkwardly-placed touchpad with a numeric pad (that almost no one needs or uses!). Lenovo has really ruined Thinkpad with the 540 series.

            It will be covered in another article later today.

                  Results from Dell M6800

                  Michael,

                  Here's my results:

                  http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...DE-1501254DE38

                  The Disk on this isn't very good, this is a Hybrid-SSD disk and it's pretty poor on I/O, but once 1TB SSDs come out and are cheaper, I'll be swapping disk

                    Re: Results from Dell M6800

                    That said, I SMOKED that Lenovo X1 laptop if you count the Radeon GPU instead of the Intel Haswell GPU
