With Ubuntu 17.10 discontinuing the 32-bit desktop ISOs, here is the last time it makes sense comparing the Ubuntu 32-bit (i686) versus x86_64 performance.
Every year or two we run >32-bit vs. 64-bit Linux benchmarks. While x86_64 Intel/AMD hardware has been extremely common for quite some time, we continue to be amazed at the number of people still running an i686 Linux distribution on x86_64 hardware.
A few days ago I posted some LLVM Clang 3.7 vs. GCC compiler benchmarks on Linux in time for the release of LLVM 3.7. While LLVM/Clang 3.7 brings full support for OpenMP 3.1, OMP tests were omitted from the original article due to running into some issues. In this article are some reference tests for Clang OpenMP performance with the latest mainline SVN code compared to GCC.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is in line for an Android 5.1.1 update, according to a report on the matter. The phablet, which will make way for the Galaxy Note 5 in a couple of months' time, took what seemed like an age to get Android 5.0 Lollipop, but according to SamMobile, testing for Android 5.1.1 is now under way.
Mozilla Firefox has yet to release an optimized edition of the famous web browser for 64-bit Windows. However, users can resort to browsers built by other developers that focus on this aspect.
PerfMonitor2 (PM2) is a processor performance and monitoring tool. It allows to track up to 4 processor-related events choosen in a model-specific list. It succeeds to PerfMonitor, and in addition to that first version, PM2 includes monitoring data, like temperatures and powers.
The rumor mill has been going crazy with the Xiaomi gossip, giving us reason enough to believe that up to two new, low-cost Xiaomi devices are on their way to market. The first one is a super cheap device (allegedly, as cheap as $80), while the other, which is the topic of today's discussion, is the successor to the Redmi 1S.
Given yesterday's story about Ubuntu 16.04 LTS potentially being the last 32-bit release if that proposal goes through, and given the number of people still running 32-bit Linux distributions on Intel/AMD hardware that is 64-bit capable, here's some fresh x86 vs. x86_64 benchmarks using Ubuntu 14.10.
Google ChromeA few weeks ago, Google released the 64-bit version of the popular Chrome browser and promised increased stability, security, and speed. We were curious to learn how many of these promises are true, and share what you gain and lose when using the 64-bit version of this browser. We have used this browser for a couple of days and ran several benchmarks. Here's what you get when using the 64-bit version of Google Chrome instead of the 32-bit version.

64-bit operating systems are popular like never before. Even though 64-bit software is available for some time, web browsers still try to adopt to the more powerful x64 computer architecture. A 64-bit web browser is a software that is capable to use a 64-bit architecture, supported by your processor and operating system. Which means it can process more memory out of your system if necessary.
Ever since Apple introduced the industry's first 64-bit processor with the iPhone 5s, silicon slingers have been in a state of emergency, or that's at least what multiple accounts seem to suggest. While those initially attempted to laugh off 64-bit chips publicly, it eventually became obvious that, much like anything else in the industry, the rest must follow. You may call it herd mentality, but it probably has a lot more to do with pure business than anything else.
For those curious about the performance advantages of using 64-bit Ubuntu Linux over 32-bit Ubuntu on a modern Intel laptop, here are 32-bit vs. 64-bit benchmarks of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on the ASUS Zenbook Prime.
