TuxMachines: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 On Linux: OpenGL, OpenCL, Vulkan Performance

Saturday 4th of June 2016 12:44:18 PM

$699 USD is a lot to spend on a graphics card, but damn she is a beauty. Last month NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 1080 as the current top-end Pascal card and looked great under Windows while now finally having my hands on the card the past few days I've been putting it through its paces under Ubuntu Linux with the major open APIs of OpenGL, OpenCL, Vulkan, and VDPAU. Not only is the raw performance of the GeForce GTX 1080 on Linux fantastic, but the performance-per-Watt improvements made my jaw drop more than a few times. Here are my initial Linux results of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Founder's Edition.

Reddit: usb3 external HDD not mounting with extension cable.

Saturday 4th of June 2016 10:29:33 AM

I made a usb extension cable(1 meter) out of cat5/ethernet cable, the cable works for a usb2 external hard drive but not for a usb3 external hard drive. The thing is this usb3 drive works fine using a really cheap usb2 extension cable(you know the type that only has a few strands of wire). I tried the obvious thing like using other usb ports and didn't make any mistakes like crossing wires or bad soldering.

Tested the ohms with a multimeter(set to 200 ohms) Cheap crappy cable = 01.6 ohms, cat5 = 00.6 ohms,

Seems that usb3 won't work if the ohms are too low. So that's my question really why would a shitty cheap cable work whereas a better quality one will not. Thanks

Reddit: What were your worst Linux moments?

Saturday 4th of June 2016 09:51:59 AM

Using a VM for testing risky operations is fun, especially when you delete /etc/ and find out your settings are gone.

I was astounded that it still worked, but sudo spat out, "unknown user id 100: Who are you?"

TuxMachines: Genuino 101 review

Saturday 4th of June 2016 08:16:27 AM

Intel has been trying to break into the maker market for a few years now, having seen the success of the Arduino project and the Raspberry Pi. The Intel Galileo (reviewed in LU&D Issue 138, 4/5) proved unpopular thanks to poor IO performance from the Quark processor. Its successor, the Edison (reviewed in LU&D Issue 151, 4/5), added an Atom processor to address performance issues but its odd form factor and high-density connectors were off-putting.

TuxMachines: Sensor oriented Marvell Cortex-A7 SoC targets IoT

Saturday 4th of June 2016 08:10:18 AM

Marvell’s dual-core Cortex-A7 “IAP220” SoC for low-power IoT and wearables runs Linux, Android, or Brillo, and offers an integrated sensor hub.

The latest in Marvell’s IoT Application Processor (IAP) family of processors, the IAP220 is the little sister to Marvell’s IAP140 SoC. The newly shipping IAP140, which runs Brillo on Marvell’s Andromeda Box Edge hacker board, features four, 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 cores. By comparison, the now-sampling IAP220 has dual, 1GHz Cortex-A7 cores. Like the IAP140, it also has an integrated MCU, in this case a Cortex-M4F rather than a Cortex-M3.

The Internet Without Connection, Free Endless OS For Emerging Markets

There are four billion people on the planet without PCs or access to affordable personal computers. That figure should surely be tempered with some contextualization i.e. not everybody actually wants to have an Internet connection and many traditional, native or bucolic ways of live do still exist on the planet. Regardless, there are a batch of global initiatives in existence which seek to give computer access to every man, woman and especially child. Endless OS is one such project. The free operating system has been designed explicitly to work in the expensive or restrictive Internet data conditions that often exist in emerging markets where fabulously affordable broadband has yet to arrive. The software itself is built to provide useful information and educational content, with or without an Internet connection. Read more
