  • LZHAM Is Still Ticking Along To Further Open-Source Lossless Compression
    It's been nearly one year since last talking about LZHAM, the lossless data compression codec designed by a former Valve developer and has been showing great potential -- particularly by game developers for compressing assets. While LZHAM news has been quiet, Rich Geldreich has still been hard at work on advancing open-source lossless compression.
  • Pick of the Bunch: Cloud Development Tools
    Cloud computing is not simply a popular phrase; it is a very important part of how we use technology. Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. The cloud eliminates maintenance and management issues, and eliminates the risk of running out of capacity. Cloud-based applications also have the virtue of being accessible from any location with an internet connection. And Linux continues to demonstrate that it is the go-to cloud platform. Developers need a broad set of powerful tools to use the cloud. There are far too many excellent cloud development tools, and this is not an exhaustive survey. But here are four excellent tools that caught our eye. The first is Dirigible; don't be put off by its name.

Radeon DRM Linux 4.4 + Mesa 11.1 + DRI3 vs. AMD's Proprietary Driver

On Friday I posted benchmarks showing Nouveau's re-clocked performance relative to NVIDIA's proprietary driver for showing the performance potential of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 600/700 series with the performance state code there beginning to work. That article was followed by AMDGPU driver tests on Linux 4.4 against Catalyst for the newest AMD GPU tech that uses this newer Direct Rendering Manager driver. The third test now is comparing the Radeon DRM performance on Linux 4.4 against AMD's binary blob when using older AMD GCN GPUs as well as a Northern Islands GPU for reference. Read more
