http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=P-State-Possible-4.6-Regression  A few days ago when delivering benchmarks of the new CPUFreq "Schedutil" governor in Linux 4.7 the P-State comparison results on this Git kernel looked particularly terrible. I've since done some P-State tests on the same system using the Linux 4.5 and 4.6 kernels that further point towards a regression having taken place.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=QEMU-2.6-IO-Bursts  The recent release of QEMU 2.6 has support for allowing guests to do bursts of I/O for a configurable amount of time, whereby the I/O level exceeds the normally allowed limits.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=AMDGPU-PRO-B2-Xenial-Test Released on Saturday was the new AMDGPU-PRO Linux beta driver release for the AMD GCN 1.2 graphics cards. Given the time that's passed since the first beta of this "hybrid" open/closed driver stack, I've been running some fresh benchmarks.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=amd-probeta2-mesa113&num=1 Following last week's AMDGPU-PRO 16.20.3 "Beta 2" driver release of AMD's new hybrid driver stack for Linux that makes use of the AMDGPU open-source kernel DRM driver with the closed-source OpenGL driver derived from Catalyst / Radeon Software, I set out to do a fresh open vs. closed-source driver comparison. For the Radeon R9 285, R9 290, and R9 Fury, I compared the performance of this new AMDGPU-PRO driver against Mesa 11.3-devel Git and Linux 4.6 for the latest open-source driver stack.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Systemd-Reverts-FBDEV-Change  Last week's release of systemd 230 ended up shipping with a change that made it more easy for processes running as a user to snoop on frame-buffer devices. That change has already been reverted for the next systemd update.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ZAC-SMR-Linux-4.7 Another one of the interesting pull requests this week for the Linux 4.7 merge window is the addition of ZAC (Zone ATA Command) support for Singled Magnetic Recording (SMR) devices.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Linux-4.7-DRM-Updates The DRM subsystem updates have been submitted for the Linux 4.7 kernel. This is a big pull with more than 80,000 lines of new code for the mainline kernel!

Introduction

Phoronix Media's premiere web property is Phoronix.com, which was founded after seeing the lack of online media that covered alternative operating systems at the time -- primarily when it came to Linux hardware reviews. Phoronix provides readers with the most detailed and up-to-date information in the computing world when it comes to the Linux and other open-source operating systems. Phoronix is especially well regarded for its Linux graphics articles and with time has become the leader in providing original Linux hardware content. More than 2,600 featured articles and 10,000 news postings have been published at Phoronix.

Phoronix is also responsible for the development of the widely-used Phoronix Test Suite testing software along with Phoromatic and OpenBenchmarking.org.

Phoronix was founded by Michael Larabel on 5 June 2004.
