  • a lambda is not (necessarily) a closure

    But if you said "it's a closure" -- well you're right in general I guess, like on a semantic what-does-it-mean level, but as far as how Guile represents this thing at run-time, hoo boy are there a number of possibilities, and a closure is just one of them. This article dives into the possibilities, with the goal being to help you update your mental model of "how much do things cost".

    In Guile, a lambda expression can be one of the following things at run-time:

    Gone

    Inlined

    Contified

    Code pointer

    Closure

    Let's look into these one-by-one.

Intel: Intel Alder Support in Linux

  • Alder Lake system features DDR5, six GbE ports, and 20Gbps USB 3.2 Gen2X2

    Neousys unveiled two embedded PCs based on Intel’s 12th Gen S-series with up to 64GB DDR5-4800: The “Nuvo-9000” has up to 6x GbE with optional PoE+, 5x USB 3.2 Gen2 (including a 2×2 port), M.2 with PCIe Gen4, and up to 2x PCIe x16. There is also a smaller, fanless “Nuvo-9531.” Neousys has announced two of the first embedded computers based on Intel’s 7nm 12th Gen Alder Lake processors. Both the PCIe x16 equipped Nuvo-9000 and more compact Nuvo-9531 use the high-end Alder Lake S-series processors.

  • Intel Alder Lake N Support Introduced For Mesa 22.0 - Phoronix

    In addition to this week seeing Raptor Lake S support added for Mesa 22.0, the Alder Lake N additions have also been merged for this quarter's Mesa update. Given the insignificant changes from the driver perspective for the existing Alder Lake (S) support, the Alder Lake N support is namely just adding new PCI IDs and identifying them as Alder Lake family while having "Display13" for the display capabilities.

  • Intel releases patch for Alder Lake's Thread Director Linux support to increase performance and energy efficiency

    With the release of Intel's 12th Gen Core Alder Lake series of CPUs, it was discovered that performance for the new CPUs was more efficient in Microsoft Windows 11 than in the Linux operating system. This is due to Linux not having adequate support for Intel's Thread Director technology that allows for the operating system to access high-performing Golden Cove cores and the energy-efficient Gracemont cores properly. Intel's Thread Director is created from the Enhanced Hardware Feedback Interface or HFI.

Meet The Incredible $15 Linux Computer

Brian Benchoff is an embedded engineer who has graced us with unique, whimsical devices like the RGB Gaming Coaster and the Zip Drive Tower. Now he’s back with a decidedly more practical design: a fully-functional Linux computer — screen and keyboard included — that costs a mere $15. Well, sort of. . . The self-described “Linux Swiss Army Knife” PC packs a surprising amount of functionality. With its 2.5-inch IPS display and 47-key silicone membrane keyboard (which feels like an older TV remote control), you can bust it out and run scripts, compile code, or even transform it into a crypto wallet.
