Squeezing Extra Performance Out Of The Intel Core i9 10900K With Clear Linux

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

Besides disabling CPU security mitigations (not recommended if security is of importance), for those wanting to squeeze extra performance out of Intel CPUs like Comet Lake with the Core i9 10900K, loading Intel's performance-optimized Clear Linux is one such way. Here is a look at the current performance that can be gained out of using the latest rolling-release Clear Linux on the i9-10900K in comparison to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

While Intel's Clear Linux team is investing less in the desktop to focus on cloud and server workloads, the distribution does continue maintaining its desktop ISO and more or less will still work fine on desktop systems like with the new Comet Lake S-Series. Just expect a more vanilla GNOME Shell experience with less customizations and focus on desktop packages/bundles.

GNUnet 0.13.0 released

We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.13.0. This is a new major release. It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.12.x versions. Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth INCOMPATIBLE with the 0.12.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers will result in signature verification failures. 0.12.x peers will NOT be able to communicate with Git master or 0.13.x peers. In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use, but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users. Also, the nascent network is tiny and thus unlikely to provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting information. As a result, the 0.13.0 release is still only suitable for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.
