    Phoronix: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Working To Be Released This Week With New Hardware Enablement Stack

    Depends really. One of my Intel systems runs Ubuntu and it has benefited from the HWE stack upgrades. The Intel, onboard graphics run noticably faster. I even do some before and after benchmarks and found a measurable difference. It was like a 15% improvement IIRC.

    Fortunately, Ubuntu .00 and 01 does not automatically update the HWE stack, it only does from 02 onwards, which should be avoided if you do not have new hardware. From my experience it is no coincidence that this policy has brought more problems to the users than benefits.
