  • Is Google Replacing Chrome OS, Android With Fuchsia?

    In a strange turn of events, reports about Google developing a new operating system surfaced this week. The OS that’s causing a huge noise in the online world is an open source, and it is dubbed as Fuchsia. With its existence coming into light, there is now one big question that needs to be answered: Is Google replacing its Chrome OS and Androi?

    It may seem too early to tell at this point, but Android Police did not rule out this possibility when it stated that Google could be hoping to replace the Chrome OS and even the hugely popular Android OS with Fuchsia someday. The tech site also indicated that there is also the possibility of Google using Fuchsia as a lightweight OS for devices like Google Home and the OnHub router, just like what Samsung does to its Tizen OS for its Gear smartwatches.

    Google’s Fuchsia OS is making headlines because it is not Linux kernel-based unlike the multinational company’s other operating systems, such as the Chrome OS, Android and Chromecasts, among others. Thus, this means the Fuchsia OS could run on almost anything — from PCs, Chromebooks, phones and Internet of Things devices.

The LeEco Le 2S's alleged 8GB RAM may put other Android phones to shame

Filed under
Android

Chinese technology company LeEco might be slowly inching toward a U.S. launch sometime this fall, but that does not mean it will sit on its laurels until then. On the contrary, LeEco is rumored to be launching the Le 2S, which is seemingly a refreshed version of the Le 2 and the first Android phone to include a whopping 8GB RAM.

You did not read that wrong — according to GizChina, the Le 2S will include 8GB RAM, practically unheard of in the Android world. As we have seen with Samsung’s 2015 flagship phones and the OnePlus 3, however, the RAM amount does not matter as much as how it is utilized. Even so, the 8GB RAM will finally turn our dream of playing five games at the same time a reality.

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.
