Mageia 8 má první alfa verzi, Fedora možná s Btrfs [Stalo se]

Root.cz - 27. Červen 2020 - 23:00
[4 minuty čtení] Množství zajímavých novinek chystá pro své uživatele Mageia s vydáním 8. Vedle toho se dnes podíváme na dva návrhy pro příští Fedoru: přechod na souborový systém btrfs a editor nano a také co nového v KDE. Nedostatek vývojářských sil a z toho plynoucí letité prodlevy ve vývoji nových verzích už u Mandrivy dávno nejsou výjimkou, stala se z nich spíše charakteristická vlastnost této distribuce. Však také u posledních verzí tvůrci nijak nespěchají s ohlašováním plánů na novinky a s časovou osou vývojových verzí. Každopádně na verzi Mageia 8 se pracuje a na světě je její první alfa, která samozřejmě není doporučena k běžnému používání a ani není podporován upgrade na ni z verze 7.

An Early Benchmark Of The NVIDIA CUDA GPU Performance On WSL2

Phoronix - 27. Červen 2020 - 23:00
Our recent benchmarks have shown WSL/WSL2 performance on the latest Windows 10 builds to generally be quite good compared to running bare metal Linux. But past the May 2020 Update and on the latest Insider Preview builds is the initial support for GPU acceleration in conjunction with updated Windows graphics drivers. The initial emphasis is on GPU compute with DirectML and for NVIDIA hardware CUDA support as well. Here are a couple CUDA benchmarks that ran gracefully under WSL2 albeit the performance leaves a lot to be desired...
