  All testing happened from an Intel Core i7 4790K system with XFX Radeon R9 290 4GB graphics card. No other hardware/software changes were made during the testing process aside from downgrading the kernel when using the Catalyst driver to what's found in Ubuntu 14.04 for kernel API compatibility.

(While most Phoronix readers should already be well aware, the reported CPU frequency differences in the system table just come down to the different CPU scaling driver on the different kernels and reporting base vs. Turbo frequency; along with the other reporting differences just come down to how the different drivers/kernels expose their information but it was all maintained during testing.

Nvidia has released some new information surrounding their upcoming 64-bit Tegra K1 variant, codenamed 'Project Denver', discussing the architecture of the chip while also making some bold performance claims.

Diving deeper into the Denver CPU cores, and Nvidia has revealed some info on the architecture being used. Each Denver core uses a seven-way superscalar microarchitecture that's capable of seven operations per clock cycle at best, leading to high throughput when conditions are ideal. During typical usage patterns it's unlikely you'll achieve seven operations per cycle, but it's impressive nevertheless.

What about how Shanghai fairs against its older brother Barcelona? Well, in some cases, the gain is clearly just the increased clock speed. However, in others Shanghai achieves an increase of anywhere from 10-15% over and above the clock speed difference. It's obvious that Shanghai is what Intel would call a "Tock" of the clock for the Barcelona architecture, and it is a nice little bump for turning a few knobs and a die shrink. 2009 will be a very interesting year for AMD and Intel. Whether or not Shanghai can hold down the fort until Istanbul comes out remains to be seen.

Today after much testing we are finally delivering our first Linux report from AMD's new 790FX Chipset. Is the chipset that's designed for PC enthusiasts and performance seeking overclockers worth anything under Linux? Does this chipset even work with the latest Linux desktop distributions? We'll be answering these questions and more, as we look at the Gigabyte MA790FX-DS5 motherboard.

I'm big fan of Slackware Linux, I have used it since the 9.0 version, and I am very happy with this distribution, in the beginning was challenging to setup mostly because I was a newbie, today I am installing and reviewing the recently released version 12 in my toshiba l35-sp1011..

Scott Noyes: It's easy to find benchmarks that favor one database over another, depending on the hardware, the configuration and the test.

This aims to be the most comprehensive kernel comparison of the latest most popular Unix style kernel versus the latest most popular kernel. In Q2 2007, this means Linux 2.6.20 kernel versus Windows Vista kernel..

Debian deserves some extra attention. The latest release is being distributed and I have no doubt that it will be installed on quite a few machines over the coming days and weeks. Personally I want to try it on the iMac Indigo and on a virtual machine under VMware.

Last month we looked at Abit's NF-M2 nView motherboard. The NF-M2 nView was one of the first microATX motherboards that offered upscale overclocking abilities while featuring integrated graphics with both VGA and DVI connectors (not to mention being a first for Universal Abit). Abit continued to use their Silent OTES technology on this AM2 motherboard along with the usual extras. Ultimately we found the Abit NF-M2 nView motherboard to be an excellent contender for HTPC enthusiasts and had worked quite well with Fedora Core 6.

So now that you've got your shiny new dual-core processor, you think you have the most power a single processor can offer. Well Intel today has changed the rules again with the first quad-core desktop processor. The Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 brings server-level processor performance to the desktop for all of your compiling, gaming, and encoding needs. What's new with this processor and how did Intel pull off this leap? Read on for all the details.
