Running The RadeonSI NIR Back-End With Mesa 19.1 Git

Phoronix - 10. Únor 2019 - 18:05
It's been a number of months since last trying the RadeonSI NIR back-end, which is being developed as part of the OpenGL 4.6 SPIR-V bits for this AMD OpenGL driver, but eventually RadeonSI may end up switching from TGSI to NIR by default. Given the time since we last tried it out and the increasing popularity of NIR, this weekend I did some fresh tests of the NIR back-end with a Radeon Vega graphics card.

Linux Might Finally See Mainline Support For The Current Apple MacBook Keyboard/Touchpad

Phoronix - 10. Únor 2019 - 14:00
The Apple MacBook / MacBook Pro laptops of the past few years have been notoriously bad on Linux at least as far as the mainline / out-of-the-box support is concerned. The current MacBook's keyboard and touchpad don't even work out-of-the-box on Linux. There has been an out-of-tree driver available for changing that while coming soon it might finally be merged to the mainline kernel...

The State Of Debian & Fedora On The RISC-V Architecture

Phoronix - 10. Únor 2019 - 1:31
RISC-V remains of a lot of interest to open-source/Linux users for being a royalty-free and completely open CPU architecture. In part due to the lack of affordable RISC-V hardware limiting developers from working more on this architecture, the state of RISC-V support by Linux distributions varies but at least has improved a lot in recent years...

Raspberry Pi 4 letos nebude, Microsoft odrazuje uživatele od IE [Stalo se] - 10. Únor 2019 - 0:00
[3 minuty čtení] Pravidelný nedělní souhrn toho, co se jinam nevešlo.

NVIDIA's Jetson AGX Xavier Carmel Performance vs. Low-Power x86 Processors

Phoronix - 9. Únor 2019 - 17:39
Back in our NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier benchmarks from December, besides looking at the incredible Carmel+Volta GPU compute potential for machine learning and other edge computing scenarios, we also looked at the ARMv8 Carmel CPU core performance against various other ARM SoCs on different single board computers. But how do these eight NVIDIA Carmel CPU cores compare to x86_64 low-power processors? Here are some of those benchmarks for those curious about the NVIDIA CPU potential.

Electron Apps Are Bad, So Now You Can Create Desktop Apps With HTML5 + Golang

Phoronix - 9. Únor 2019 - 12:52
The Electron software framework that allows creating desktop GUI application interfaces using JavaScript and relies upon a bundled Chromium+Node.js run-time is notorious among most Linux desktop users for being resource heavy, not integrating well with most desktops, and generally being despised. For those that are fond of using web standards for creating desktop GUIs, now there is a way to create desktop application front-ends using HTML5 and Golang but with less baggage...
