Intel vs AMD Integrated Graphics for a Workstation PC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2012
I've been wanting to build a PC from scratch specifically for basic video capture/editing and general internet usage, and am trying to decide what CPU to purchase. As of now, I've mostly looking at the AMD A10 APUs and Intel Core i3 CPUs, since their pricing is very similar, and I'd like the keep the cost of the build down as much as possible, since this is more of a hobby build and not an actual profession.
I'm still a bit of a Linux newbie, so I'm not familiar with the state of GPGPU on Linux. I don't know if there are even applications that make use of it, or if the video drivers for either of these two solutions supports it. If not, I guess it comes down to which would offer better performance in a multithreaded environment. Does anyone have any advice as to what would be the best choice here? Thanks.
LXer: Workstation Benchmarks: Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 3, 2010
Published at LXer:
As I alluded to recently, the second round of Windows 7 vs. Linux benchmarks -- with the first round consisting of Is Windows 7 Actually Faster Than Ubuntu 10.04 and Mac OS X vs. Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu benchmarks -- are currently being done atop a Lenovo ThinkPad W510 notebook that is quite popular with business professionals. With the high-end ThinkPad W510 boasting a dual quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU with Hyper-Threading plus a NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M graphics processor, we began this second round of cross-platform benchmarks by running a set of workstation tests. In this article we are mainly looking at the workstation graphics (via SPECViewPerf) performance along with some CPU/disk tests.

VM Workstation 7 performance with Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2009
I have a Acer Aspire 2930Z (Intel T4200, 4GB memory, and 320GB HDD), the notebook is note the fastest I know, but it was always able to keep up with what I do with it.
Normally I'm work only in Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) Linux, this works more then I could wish for. But sometimes I need to use MS Windows, therefore I have installed VM Ware Workstation, which I recently upgraded to version 7.
With VM Ware Workstation 7 (64-bit) the problems started, MS Windows XP, which I run in VM Workstation 7 is now getting slow, and I mean slow to the edge of uselessness. I already downgraded the graphics of Win XP and set all options to performance... still it is pretty slow...
Is there something I missed, some new settings I overlooked?
With Vmware Workstation 6.53 I never had that problem, actual I was able to play some action games using MS Windows XP. Now this games seem like a slow-motion movie from times long gone...
Absolute security/locked down workstation?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 14, 2013
I'm building a computer for my mom. Her uses will be limited to:Email
Viewing/organizing photos (Picasa)
A few simple games (e.g. solitaire) and possibly web(/java)-based games (e.g. Pogo.)
Can I whitelist these apps (and her home directory) and block everything else? My goal is to create something that is absolutely secure and safe from any kind (known or unknown) intrusion and/or malware. Any other suggestions for achieving this goal would be greatly appreciated.
vmware 6.5 workstation + gaming
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 27, 2008
I am using vmware for a long time now with great pleasure and the only reason I use a dual boot is for the game wow.
I know it can be played with wine/cedega etc... but not the way i want it. (use a lot of tools around it) so today I read that vmware 6.5 is able to do directx 9.0
So my question is, has anyone tried this out yet? I want to be sure it works before I upgrade. Couldn't find anything on the internet to confirm.
VMware Workstation problems
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 6, 2007
I'm running Slack 11.0 with kernel 126.96.36.199 and I got workstation 5.5.3, installing it using the vmware-any-any-update108 patch. I am able to create a virtual machine just fine, but when I go to power on the machine I get the following errors, one after another:
[SOLVED] VMware Workstation 8 No sound in Win7x64 Guest
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 28, 2012
I just installed vmware workstation 8 on slackware 13.37 x86_64. I created a Windows 7 (64 bit) Ultimate guest and I'm having a hard time getting the audio to work. I tried the default "ALSA: Default Sound Card" and "ALSA: HDA Invidia" in the vm...settings window. I heard garbled sound from the speakers with both of those choices. I also tried setting it to "OSS: /dev/dsp" and "OSS:/dev/audio" which results in no sound at all.
I verified that the user running vmware as well as root are in the "audio" group. Not sure what else the problem could be here. Here is what the vmware.log file contains:
VMWare Workstation on Ubuntu how much hardware required?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2008
Perhaps this should be under hardware it is not a hardware "problem" exactly...
I am back on an old kick of running Windoze in a VM on a Linux box. Started a few years ago but did not have the time to do too much. In a nutshell I have an evaluation copy of VMware workstation which I successfully installed on Ubuntu 6.10 (don't ask about installing on Fedora 7 - my first attempt). I successfully installed Win XP Pro and Win Vista Ultimate (bloat). They each seem to run and can access the network, Internet etc.
I decided to see if I could run both at once. Memory utilization was low ~400 MB per the Ubuntu system monitor. CPU utilization ran high but not always pegged at 100%. However, the hard drive light came on and stayed on and on and I decided to shut down the XP machine. And the light stayed on and on and on... Finally got both VMs shut down after about 15 minutes.
So I am thinking that perhaps I need a 15K rpm SCSI drive or two to build a decent performin
