TuxMachines: Rugged 3.5-inch SBC runs Linux or Android on i.MX6

Friday 26th of August 2016 07:08:05 PM

Logic Supply has introduced a “ICM-3011” 3.5-inch board with a dual-core i.MX6, wide-range power input, and extended temperature support.

Like the recent Pico-ITX form factor ICM-2010 SBC that’s also available in an ICS-2010 mini-PC, the ICM-3011 was built by Taipei-based Embux, and is being distributed and supported by Logic Supply. Like the ICM-2010, the $253 ICM-3011 runs on the 1GHz, dual-core DualLite version of NXP’s Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 SoC. It similarly is supported by images for Android 5.0.2 “Lollipop,” Yocto “Daisy” Linux 1.6.2, or Ubuntu Linux 12.04.

TuxMachines: An Everyday Linux User Review Of Antergos Linux

Friday 26th of August 2016 06:24:09 PM

So Antergos was recommended to me by a number of people and I have to say that the experience was decent.

It isn't difficult to install Antergos but if you have a slow internet connection then you have to be a bit patient.

Most things worked ok and hardware support was fine across the board.

The Steam thing I put down to something that the Steam developers need to resolve. Come up with a better installer.

Would Antergos make my top five now that I have tried it? I would say no to that. It isn't as good as Manjaro and that is the best distribution to pitch it against because they are both based on Arch. Manjaro has a more polished look and feel.

Nevertheless Antergos is a good distribution and well worth a try.

TuxMachines: 1.5m US iPhone users are about to switch to Android

Friday 26th of August 2016 06:21:38 PM

If we take ComScore figures for January 2016 we see that around 198.5 million people in the US own smartphones. 52.8 percent of these use Android and 43.6 percent use iPhones, ComScore claims.

If we use ComScore’s figures as base we can make some estimates based on Fluent’s research. Fluent believes 29 percent of all iPhone users will definitely buy a new phone this year, and while 87 percent of them will stick with Apple (21.8 million), 6 percent will switch to Android. This suggests that around 1.5 million US iPhone users will make this switch.

Phoronix: RadeonSI OpenGL Performance Has Evolved A Lot Since Early 2015

Friday 26th of August 2016 03:42:54 PM
Yesterday I posted some benchmarks showing how the AMDGPU / R9 Fury performance has jumped up in the past few months just since the April release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. For those wondering how the open-source AMD OpenGL performance has evolved over the longer term, I took a Radeon R9 270X graphics card and re-did tests going back to Ubuntu 15.04 for looking at the RadeonSI Gallium3D performance for the past year and a half.

Windows 10 vs. Linux Radeon Software Performance, Including AMDGPU-PRO & RadeonSI

As alluded to earlier and on Twitter, the past few days I have been working on a fresh Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux graphics/gaming performance comparison. This time it's looking at the latest Radeon performance using an R9 Fury and RX 480. Tests on Windows were obviously done with Radeon Software Crimson Edition while under Linux were the two latest AMD/RTG Linux driver options: the hybrid AMDGPU-PRO driver and the fully open-source driver via Linux 4.8 and Mesa 12.1-dev.
