Open Source GPU driver Freedreno

Posted by Charbax – October 18, 2015

Bernhard Rosenkränzer on the Android team at Linaro and Rob Clark of Red Hat who works on the open source GPU driver called Freedreno for Qualcomm's ARM processors Adreno GPU. This open source GPU driver enables better open source software such as for example all kinds of Linux for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 powered Dragonboard 410c which I have filmed here:

CERN CMS tests 64bit ARM Servers for worldwide grid scientific computing

Posted by Charbax – October 16, 2015

David Abdurachmanov of Fermilab works in Geneva at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, testing all the latest different 64bit ARM Server platforms to measure when they may be recommended to be used by up to hundreds of computing centers around the world, potentially deployed to hundreds of thousands of servers to crunch large amounts of scientific data worldwide. The GRID of Computing resources analyses scientific data for experiments in high energy physics, to find proof that the Higgs Boson exists, at the core of understanding how the world is made. These scientific server grids must be built at optimal cost to consume the least amount of power as more and more scientific experiments require to analyse more and more data. CERN is where the Web was born, it might also be where the ARM Server will get kickstarted. As computing centers around the world have the requirement to use the least amount of power. David Abdurachmanov is eager to test and potentially to implement mass production ready ARM 64bit Server hardware.
