Apple macOS 10.15 vs. Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu 19.10 Performance Benchmarks

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

In addition to this month bringing the release of the Ubuntu 19.10 "Eoan Ermine", Apple also shipped macOS 10.15 "Catalina" as the sixteenth major release of their macOS operating system. So with that it makes for an interesting time seeing how macOS 10.15 competes against both Ubuntu 19.10 and Windows 10 on an Apple MacBook Pro. Here are those results from dozens of benchmarks.

Using an Apple MacBook Pro with Core i7-6700HQ Skylake CPU, 2 x 8GB RAM, 250GB Apple SSD, and Radeon Pro 450 graphics, macOS 10.15, Windows 10, and Ubuntu 19.10 were all benchmarked off this same system. All three operating systems were tested with their latest software updates as of testing.

  • OpenShift 4.3: User Management Improvements

    The Red Hat OpenShift Web Console has always strived to be the easiest way to interact with OpenShift resources, and in version 4.3 we’ve added more capabilities around viewing and editing user management resources. Dedicated pages to view Users and Groups for the cluster have been added, allowing cluster admins to easily see who has access to the cluster and how they are organized. These new pages are consolidated under one navigation section, so there is now just one place to look for any user management resource. Let’s take a closer look.

  • Culture of innovation: Open Data Hub

    Red Hat is continually innovating and part of that innovation includes researching and striving to solve the problems our customers face. That innovation is driven through the Office of the CTO and includes Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage and innovative projects such as the Open Data Hub. We recently interviewed Juana Nakfour, Senior Software Engineer in the AI Center of Excellence for the office of the CTO at Red Hat, about this very topic.

  • Design Weaknesses Expose Industrial Systems to Damaging Attacks [iophk: Windows TCO]

    On the 10,000 industrial endpoints it has analyzed, PAS discovered a total of more than 380,000 known vulnerabilities, a majority impacting software made by Microsoft. However, the company found not only typical vulnerabilities that can be patched with a software or firmware update, but also weaknesses introduced by the existence of legitimate features and functionality that can be abused for malicious purposes.

  • 250 million Microsoft customer service records briefly exposed online: report

    Consumer research group Comparitech found that records of conversations between Microsoft support employees and customers around the world spanning 14 years, from 2005 through the end of 2019, were left exposed on five separate servers between Dec. 28 and 29.

    This information was accessible during that time to anyone with a web browser, and included customer email addresses, locations, IP addresses, case numbers and confidential internal notes on cases.

  • Looking for silver linings in the CVE-2020-0601 crypto vulnerability

    The scene stealer in January’s Patch Tuesday updates from Microsoft was CVE-2020-0601, a very serious vulnerability in the crypt32.dll library used by more recent versions of Windows. The flaw, which also goes by the names Chain of Fools and Curveball, allows an attacker to fool Windows into believing that malicious software and websites have been digitally vouched for by one of the root certificate authorities that Windows trusts (including Microsoft itself). An attacker could exploit the flaw to disguise malware as legitimate – Microsoft-approved – software, to conduct silent Man-in-the-Middle attacks or to create more realistic phishing websites.

  • Critical MDhex Vulnerabilities Shake the Healthcare Sector

    Critical vulnerabilities have been discovered in popular medical devices from GE Healthcare that could allow attackers to alter the way they function or render them unusable. A set of six security flaws, they have been collectively named MDhex. Five of them received the highest severity rating on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System, 10 out of 10.

  • Investigating a Backdoor.SH.SHELLBOT.AA Infection

    Surprisingly, it's not obfuscated beyond the initial packing. I've made it available here, albeit with anything that could identify the botmaster redacted.3 I believe the language here is Portuguese. The code disguises itself by setting argv to "rsync" and forking into the background. It then connects to an IRC C&C server and waits for commands.

Open-spec SBC serves up 4k camera-oriented Allwinner V536 SoC

The open-spec “Lindenis V536” SBC runs Linux on the Cortex-A7-based Allwinner V536, a 4k camera-oriented SoC with integrated ISP and VPU. The 130 x 85mm SBC design is built in an SoM plus baseboard configuration. Lindenis Tech Ltd., a Shenzhen, China startup staffed by former Allwinner employees, has released the Lindenis V536, an open spec, single board computer based on Allwinner’s V536 4k mobile camera SoC. In August 2018, we covered a previous camera-oriented SBC from Lindenis, the Lindenis V5 based on the Allwinner’s V5 SoC. It’s only natural that the company would now follow up with this new open-spec 130 x 85mm SBC based on Allwinner’s new V536 SoC. The V536 SoC is a high-performance, low-power mobile camera SoC developed for the new generation of intelligent driving recorders. The Lindenis V536 board supports Linux-4.9 and its homegrown Lindenis Video OS. Read more
