$40, 64-bit Odroid SBC runs Linux on 2GHz Cortex-A53

Hardkernel unveiled its first 64-bit hacker SBC. The Odroid-C2 has the same layout as the C1+, but has a quad-core, 2GHz Cortex-A53 SoC and a $40 price.

The Odroid-C2’s $40 price may not be as dramatic as that of the similarly 64-bit, ARMv8 Pine A64, which will start shipping to Kickstarter backers later this month starting at $15. However, it’s more affordable than Qualcomm’s $75 DragonBoard 410c, which has a quad-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 410. Clocked at 2GHz, the quad-core, Cortex-A53 Amlogic S905 SoC is likely faster than the 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 or Pine64’s quad-core, 1.2GHz Allwinner A64. The Odroid-C2 SBC also offers more features, especially compared to the Pine A64.

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.
