Both ATI and Nvidia have succeeded in establishing workable driver solutions for a broad range of their latest product lines, from the minimally-equipped budget-oriented to extravagantly-detailed enthusiast products. In this article, we examine the basic performance differentials for a Radeon X1900 XTX and GeForce 7800 GTX. Our aim is to help readers establish a basis from which to compare Linux and Windows driver performance. Examination of both cards uses vendor-issued driver sets under a common distribution, with Unreal Tournament 2004 benchmarks to facilitate the comparison

Albatron K8SLI does pack on its wealth of motherboard innovations when it comes to the dual BIOS with ABS card, Watch Dog Timer, and digital SLI selector. As far as the Linux support goes, we had experienced no problems with the exception of LM_Sensors and its detection. With the motherboard layout, we had also noticed a few flaws with its design, which is likely due to the skinnier PCB design that it is based upon.

? Databases are by no means an easy product category to understand. Many of the big players now offer free or "light" versions of their databases, but comparing them all is no easy task -- as we found out. Read More...

The three subsystems examined are scheduling, memory management, and file system architecture. I chose these subsystems because they are common to any operating system (not just Unix and Unix-like systems), and they tend to be the most well-understood components of the operating system.

This article does not go into in-depth details on any of the subsystems described. For that, refer to the source code, various websites, and books on the subject. For specific books, see:

The Ubuntu 5.10 release, also known as Breezy Badger, is not drastically different from the previous Ubuntu release, 5.04 Hoary Hedgehog, but it is an excellent distribution that is well worth a look for any user interested in a Linux distro for the desktop or server.

The Ubuntu distribution is on a six-month development cycle, so releases tend to be full of minor improvements and incremental changes. This is a good thing for users, since it means a great deal of stability from release to release -- as well as a predictable release cycle that's easy to plan around.

Venice performed better than San Diego across the board, and it isn't too difficult to conclude that the extra speed offered no advantage in terms of file archiving and extraction; hard drive RPM and cache are the influencing factors that determine the speed of these actions. When compiling using GCC was really the only benchmark that decisively showed the San Diego as the clear winner over the Venice

Within a few hours, NVIDIA is expected to release their new set of display drivers (1.0-7675). Among other improvements, these new drivers should correct a majority of the problems that previously plagued the 7800GTX Linux performance. Some such problems were the 2D/3D clock switch not operating properly and the GPU not being able to surpass the 415MHz mark. Although in our testing we were using an early build of the 1.0-7675 x86_64 drivers, we're pleased to say these issues are no longer a problem. The G70 immediately scaled up to 468MHz; past the 430MHz reference mark.

Earlier this morning, NVIDIA publicly unveiled their new 7800 GTX (G70) GPU for immediate availability. Some of its features include CineFX 4.0, eight vertex processing units, improvements in the pixel-shader, and improved anti-aliasing. In addition, the NVIDIA G70 now uses an 110nm @ TSMC process, 80 million more transistors than the GeForce 6800, and runs at a 430MHz core / 600MHz GDDR3 clock speed. We will be bringing numerous 7800 GTX Linux reviews as the week's progress.
