    Does Intel have anything in the works to counter with?
    I believe that 3x comment is specifically referring to recent kernel-compile-time comparisons (something Linus, presumably, does rather a lot of, so it is a fair comparison in this particular case! ). For more general tasks you may or may not see that much improvement! (though I would still expect some improvement for most tasks, just not necessarily 3x).

      This is a great news. Always there can be some improvements for AMD now easily tested by him

        Well you should it is not about Kylie Jenner wears Gucci. If Linus uses AMD Threadripper you can be damn sure if there is a Kernel Bug* it will be targeted rather fast. Since the "head" of Linux is experiencing this bug. Or any kind of regression at all.

        edit:*related to AMD Threadripper - or the whole Zen2 architecture

          Why should GKH care about RGB?


          ...can "It needs to be quite" include no light emitting? as visual quiet

              I'm pretty certain that no TRX40 motherboard contains integrated graphics since that's typically reserved for AM4 APUs and Epyc motherboards, so considering that Intel doesn't have consumer discrete GPUs available just yet and Linus doesn't exactly have the fondest opinion of Nvidia, there's a very good chance that he's at least using some form of AMD discrete GPU.

              It's also worth noting that the whisper-quiet PC that Wendel built for Greg Kroah-Hartman uses a Radeon RX 5700XT.

                Blast, I typo'd - that should say 5600XT.

                (if there's an edit function, it seems to not be available for me due to being a new member that still needs comments to be manually approved)

                  Not sure about Linus, but GKH has / soon will have RX 5600 XT.

                    You want a picture of Linus giving the finger to AMD?

                      kernel build easily fits in ram
