    Phoronix: November Is Still Bringing Many Interesting Linux Benchmarks / Milestones

    Pardon for the rather slow pace of new Phoronix content over the past week (in particular, the lack of big benchmark articles) due to my wife giving birth early and being in the hospital for a few days, but the remainder of November is set to be quite exciting on the Linux/open-source performance front. Here is some of what else is on tap for November...

        Congrats Michael. Now we all should expect a bit less articles from you so you can help your wife with your child. It will be your number one job to make sure she gets 6.5 hours of sleep at the same time each day, so she can keep her sanity, so you can keep yours. ;-)

          Congratulations. This will be a big turning point in your life. Suddenly Phoronix will be the second most important thing you do. Best wishes!!!!!

            By the way, even though your site is famous for benchmarking, many of us come for the articles. (Sounds like a Playboy reader) You do really good coverage of kernel updates, driver updates and general development news that is hard to find anywhere else. If the content balance shifts a bit in this direction I’m certain many of us wouldn’t care. We would still want to see some testing of course but we don’t need a new set of benchmarks everyday.

            I mention this thinking benchmarking takes a lot more time than the technical and news articles. The kernel coverage you do is a perfect example of what I find hard to find on the net this why I come here. You seem to have a knack for pulling out the most important details for each release (most of the time).

            I just mention this because you will likely be surprised by how much of your time goes to Other Things now.

              Actually I argue with my wife that Phoronix is still first most important (or tied)... As without continuing to battle each and every day, then I cannot provide for my family.

                Unfortunately my kernel coverage (as often gets pointed out to me, other sites doing kernel lists of changes / overviews after mine often copy over any product model misspellings that I occasionally have in mine, etc) and other content (particularly on new AMD and Intel graphics driver features) is often replicated and taken the interesting bits without sourcing to other sites, so the site wouldn't solely be sustained on that sort of news due to being short one page viewing and other sites often covering the story after Phoronix.

                  You should benchmark Arch, Ubuntu 19.10, and Windows 10 in a shoot off for gaming and production workloads. Interestingly enough, out of everything I used on my Threadripper 1950X, I get the absolute best performance on Arch Linux. Gaming (especially 1% and 0.1% mins) on my 1080ti is absolutely fantastic. Glad I was finally able to leave windows behind. I have a catalog of over 800 games and very few don't work. There are a couple that require tweaks (duckgame requires protontricks for example), but overall, Valve is knocking it out of the park even for Windows games. I also game at 4K, and have had no issues whatsoever with the graphics maxed out in 99% of games (the only real exceptions being indy games like 7 Days to Die. I have to turn the resolution down to 1440p for some odd reason. At 1440p 60-100fps, at 4k ~10fps.)

                  Does anyone know of any tools on Linux that can measure average/1%/0.1% frame times on Linux (NVIDIA)?
