Me + Gentoo: Not a good ideea… Great distro though

Filed under
Gentoo

I just had to go there. I had to go there and do something stupid… Let me tell you what happened.

The tendency to learn something new is very high and very powerful, but as we all know you cannot learn without making mistakes. If somebody ever claims that he did something perfectly on the first try, you should instantly know that the person you are talking to did not learn a thing.

Today I woke up with a wish to do a review on Gentoo Linux. I thought to myself “how hard could it be?”. Well let me tell you it’s hard… I personally do not have enough experience or knowledge about the linux system to get Gentoo up and running… yet.

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).
