    please go back to the nvidia on windows user forum ... just a joke but dont feed them with such ideas

    Not really Formula 1 settings I doubt that Clear Linux would still be faster if they recompiled their stuff with these flags.
    well it is worthwhile to have a look at their github repo - there is more ongoing eg. plenty of patches adding avx support to certain packages.

    That certainly would be interesting. With the demise of the fat client and popularity of web-based SaaS the world could use a supported Linux OS to replace that swiss cheese desktop OS But, Wintel brings Intel a ton of revenue so not sure if we'll ever see a supported Clear Linux.

    Phoronix: Even With A $199 Laptop, Clear Linux Can Offer Superior Performance To Fedora Or Ubuntu

    The latest in our benchmarking fun with the $199+ Motile M141 laptop is seeing how well Intel's Clear Linux performs on it in relation to Ubuntu and Fedora.
