  • Start64!Geekbench provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks engineered to quickly and accurately measure processor and memory performance. Designed to make benchmarks easy to run and easy to understand, Geekbench takes the guesswork out of producing robust and reliable benchmark results.

  • Start64!“‘We believe the Android operating system will be the most important console operating system in the future,’ Nvidia CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang said at the company’s CES 2014 press conference tonight. Then he effectively declared war on next-generation console gaming by announcing the Tegra K1, the company’s next mobile chip with a whopping 192-cores,” Jason Evangelho reports for Forbes.

  • Start64!For those NVIDIA gaming customers running Microsoft Windows 8.1 that have been thinking about giving Valve's SteamOS Linux-based gaming platform a try, here are some early benchmarks of the SteamOS 1.0 beta that compare the performance to Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro x64 on multiple NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.

  • Start64!Bring your PC to its limits with the freeware stress test tool HeavyLoad. HeavyLoad puts your workstation or server PC under a heavy load and lets you test whether they will still run reliably. The individual test methods employed by HeavyLoad can be customized to fit your needs. On a system featuring multiple processor cores, for example, you can select how many of the available cores shall be used or set the speed in which the test file is to be written on your hard disk.

  • Start64!The first reviews of Apple’s iPhone 5S are in, and the news is unilaterally positive. Unlike the iPhone 5 launch, which was badly overshadowed by the Apple Maps debacle, the iPhone 5S has no such problems. General coverage of everything from the new camera to iOS 7 is positive. The issues that people were concerned might be gimmicky, like the new fingerprint sensor, are receiving high praise. The camera, with its dual flash LED technology, is noted as taking better low-light photos than its predecessor.

  • Start64!Smartphones with quad-core processors are the future, right? Well, not so fast. Apple's spanking-new 64-bit A7 is dual-core, according to Anandtech, a widely-read chip review site. It's seems that Apple is bucking a trend here.

  • Start64!While 64-bit Linux desktop support has been in good shape for years, it seems there's a surprising number of Intel/AMD Linux desktop users undecided whether to use the 32-bit or 64-bit installation images of their favorite Linux distribution. For the latest perspective on 32-bit versus 64-bit Linux performance, here are said benchmarks from the latest Ubuntu 13.10 development state.

  • Start64!This program calculates pi and other mathematical constants to arbitrary precision, only limited by processing power and memory. Its main feature is not speed, but multiplatform capability and a nice GUI.

  • Start64!While nearly all modern Intel/AMD x86 hardware is 64-bit capable, among novice Linux users the question commonly is whether to install the 32-bit or 64-bit version of a given distribution. We have previously delivered benchmarks showing Ubuntu 32-bit vs. 64-bit performance while in this article is an updated look in seeing how the 32-bit versus 64-bit binary performance compares when running Ubuntu 13.04 with the Linux 3.8 kernel.

  • Start64!New version! -Fraps is a universal Windows application that can be used with games using DirectX or OpenGL graphic technology.  In its current form Fraps performs many tasks and can best be described as: Benchmarking Software, Screen Capture Software, Rfreewareealtime Video Capture Software.

  • Start64!In past years on Phoronix there has been no shortage of 32-bit vs. 64-bit Linux benchmarks. Assuming you don't have a limited amount of RAM and under memory pressure, 64-bit distributions tend to be much faster than the 32-bit versions. However, some Linux users still often wonder whether they should use the 32-bit or 64-bit version of their distribution even when on 64-bit hardware. So with that said, here's some more 32-bit vs. 64-bit benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.10 with the Linux 3.5 kernel.

  • Start64!In less than two weeks, Windows 8 will be available for anyone to buy and install on their personal computers or simply, upgrade their current operating system. But is Windows 8 any good? Since I will focus on performance this will not be a review but a gaming performance comparison between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

  • Start64!As mentioned last week when publishing the OS X 10.8 vs. Ubuntu Linux benchmarks, a large Intel OpenGL driver performance comparison was being carried out at Phoronix. The comparison is now compete and here are the results when comparing the Intel HD OpenGL graphics performance under Apple OS X 10.8, Microsoft Windows 7 Pro, and Ubuntu Linux 12.04/12.10. The results of this Intel OpenGL gaming performance comparison are quite interesting, but reveal some troubling Linux facts.

  • Start64!During the last ten years, Internet Explorer (IE) has completely lost its reputation - mostly thanks to its poor performance, stability issues, security vulnerabilities and a lack of functionality. IE became a joke among PC users. But luckily for its fans, Microsoft hasn't given up hope. In fact, it improved things drastically in the last three versions. However, IE9's performance is still remarkably poor compared to the other web browsers.

  • Start64!With so many product categories now in their catalogue it is sometimes easy to forget that Corsair's core business was once memory products. From those early products they have expanded to release some excellent cases, PSUs, peripherals and coolers... many of which were so good we regularly re-use them in our reviews.

  • Start64!Lamark is an updated remake of the popular 80s and 90s benchmarking tool Landmark Speed Test by Landmark Research International Corporation.  Lamark Speed Test, requires no installation, no DLL nor component registration, no external dependencies, no purchasing, and its reduced size, makes possible to fit the complete package even in an old-fashioned floppy disk. This makes Lamark the perfect choice for quick and reliable choice while comparing PC performances.

  • Start64!New version! - System Stability Tester began as a system stressing and benchmarking tool for overclockers, by the Greek pctechnology and overclockers community, the first months of 2005. Since its first release 0.1 is free and open source software. When version 0.7 came out in June 2007, the project moved to sourceforge.net in order to ease its distribution and gain popularity.
