AMD Radeon DRIVER GLITCH
AMD Radeon Driver 20.4.1 This is one of the bugs that exist in the recent AMD drivers for the 5700 XT. It may also exist for other AMD cards with this driver or for this card on the 20.4.2 or 20.5.1 driver. This one was very difficult to isolate. I enabled the “Video Replay” feature… Continue reading AMD Radeon DRIVER GLITCH
Fedora 13 benchmarks.
I have created some new Fedora 13 benchmarks. I have published the results on Phoronix I am particularly proud of the 12,500 inserts into SQLite in 17.11 seconds..

Tom’s Hardware benchmark confirms i5 660, i5 661, i7 870 faster than i7 980x.
This benchmark was for Lame and the results indicate that the i5 660, i5 661, and the i7 870 all tied for first when encoding audio from wav format to mp3 format. They all outperformed the i7 980x. Lame is obviously not SMP for more than 2 cores. I said something to this effect back… Continue reading Tom’s Hardware benchmark confirms i5 660, i5 661, i7 870 faster than i7 980x.
VelociRaptor 10,000 RPM 600G hard drive released!
Today I received the Official Western Digital announcement for the new VelociRaptor 10,000 RPM 600G SATA 6G/s drive. Sounds impressive. If we were limited to mechanical drives, this one definitely would be the one to have for performance. The problem is, we are not limited to mechanical drives. Solid state drives are readily available. The… Continue reading VelociRaptor 10,000 RPM 600G hard drive released!
Phoronix Global benchmark Top of the World. Why yes, Virginia, that is a 16 Core Dell R900 that I just out performed by Thirty-Three PERCENT, with a dual core system that was not overclocked.
My criterion for valid benchmarks.
Recently I have fielded many inquiries related to building the fastest servers available. So, in reply. I am publishing the list of criterion I adhere to. These are requirements for the server systems that I build and sell for production web or file servers. My standards of quality and moral values in this regard will… Continue reading My criterion for valid benchmarks.
Google to initiate ultra high speed Internet connections
Google is planning to offer connections at 1Gb/s, in the near future. This could be the next big wave in Internet momentum. I look forward to the implementation. Google Gigabit on YouTube
Nvidia “Fake” RAID0 identical in speed to Fedora 12 Soft RAID.
Test Results I have often read that Fedora Logical RAID has better performance characteristics than a “BIOS” or “FAKE” RAID. That may be true in some cases. Today I dispelled that myth in regards to Nvidia BIOS RAID0 versus Fedora Logical RAID0. The test results were identical. Results were obtained with the latest Fedora 12… Continue reading Nvidia “Fake” RAID0 identical in speed to Fedora 12 Soft RAID.
