    Default Running The Linux 2.6.35 Kernel With A Core i7 Notebook

    Phoronix: Running The Linux 2.6.35 Kernel With A Core i7 Notebook

    While we benchmark the latest Linux kernel code on a daily basis at kernel-tracker.phoromatic.com using our automated testing platform built on the Phoronix Test Suite, now that the Linux 2.6.35 kernel was released, we have run a formalized set of kernel benchmarks on a ThinkPad W510 notebook with an Intel Core i7 CPU to see how the Linux 64-bit kernel is running with this high-end notebook under the Linux 2.6.32, 2.6.33, 2.6.34, and 2.6.35 releases.

    I would be very interested to see a test of the recently released HP Envy 14 notebook with this latest Kernel.
    The latest HP Envy 14 has a dual GPU solution (intel+AMD), and I'm wondering if the latest work made by David Airlies is enough to deal with it (GPU switching at login + power saving patches for AMD GPU).

    Does the boost in Apache performance compensate for the drop in Apache performance that has occurred between the 2.6.18 kernel used in CentOS 5.5 and the 2.6.32 kernel used in RHEL 6.0 Beta 2 WS?

    Some pretty significant performance gains there ^^,

    Is the Linux kernel 'crew' monitoring the Phoronix benchmark 'tracker'?

    Then take a look at this:

    22% improvement in sysbench on 4 cores CPU. There's a chance these patches will be merged in 2.6.36.

    That's funny if network use is 100% for single file download (outside browser), web browsing works like nothing happened, well that 3% slowdown but that's nothing, good job Google, can't wait for 6th of Chrome, sorry for my invasion of your forum, i apologize.

    Yes, results should be even better. However, I tried myself, but I did notice only a small difference in sysbench as far (Athlon X2). I'll test more thoroughly.
