http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Ubuntu-14.04-16.04-Xeon-E5  This morning I posted some Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 LTS Radeon graphics benchmarks while if open-source AMD graphics driver evolution doesn't get you excited, in this article are results from other non-graphics benchmarks in comparing the Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 performance for these long-term support releases in their current form.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=AMD-FreeSync-DAL-Plans  While NVIDIA has long supported G-SYNC on Linux as their adaptive sync technology for eliminating screen tearing, AMD hasn't supported their FreeSync tech via their open or closed-source Linux drivers. Fortunately, it's looking like that will change.

 http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Valentine-2016-Request  With Valentine's Day this weekend, it's a great time to consider showing your support of Phoronix with all of the work invested daily for our timely open-source news, Linux hardware reviews, open-source benchmarking, and much more. As my appreciation for the community, I'm running a Valentine's Day special as well as working on some special content for the days ahead.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Ubuntu-16.04-Early-FirePro As some complementary data to this week's Radeon Gallium3D OpenGL Performance From Fedora 18 To Fedora 23 and the earlier Ubuntu 6.06 LTS to 16.04 LTS benchmarks is a look at the Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 (in its current development state) performance with an AMD FirePro graphics card.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Talos-Principle-RadeonSI  While the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver stack is capable of running The Talos Principle puzzle game by Croteam, the performance is rather poor and there are some bugs.

Heading should be "Radeon stack still poor"

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.
