You're Never Too Old For Linux

Filed under
Linux

November 30th was a milestone birthday for me! I hit the big Five-OH! Fifty! This 50th birthday made me realize that you're never too old to learn something new.

I was well into my forties when I first switched over to Linux. I've never regretted the move. It was easy to make the switch and when I did run into a minor bump or two in the road, I had the help and support of the Linux community to help me through it.

Don't be afraid to make the move to Linux!

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
