UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions without burning a CD.You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file.
Utilizing the core-avx2 CPU optimizations offered by the GCC 4.8 compiler can provide real benefits for the Intel Core i7 4770K processor and other new "Haswell" CPUs. For some computational workloads, the new Haswell instruction set extensions can offer tremendous speed-ups compared to what's offered by the previous-generation Ivy Bridge CPUs.
I've been using Gentoo Linux for 5 years. It's a unique Linux distribution where you build everything from source, and can optimize for the exact hardware you have.. But the real benefits are in what using it does for your own skills.
Many people wonder if 64-bit GNU/Linux offers any kind of performance increase over 32-bit. We've already covered the theoretical advantages and some of the pitfalls of using a totally 64-bit AMD64 system. Now it's time to measure performance.
As previously discussed on Linux Magazine, Gentoo is a source based distribution which lets the end user decide what their system will be.All binary distributions make these choices for you, but building from source, Gentoo users can decide for themselves. They are able to choose what CPU their binaries will be built for, as well as GCC optimizations.
radeon is a family of open source graphics drivers for older AMD/ATI Radeon graphics cards. For cards based on Graphics Core Next (GCN) 1.2 and higher, read the AMDGPU article instead. Neither this nor the AMDGPU article cover installation and configuration of the closed source drivers (see the next paragraph).
