I have returned to the 5.7.x kernel after using the stock -current kernel for a while now and I still see something I noted in the early 5.7.x kernels: my CPU temp is about 20 degrees warmer than the temp seen with the stock -current kernel. Noted this again with 5.7.7 this morning where idle temp for my AMD Threadripper 2950X is about 53 degrees Celsius while 5.4.50 shows about 33 degrees Celcius.

Has anybody else seen this?

Not running a Threadripper (yet) but AMD FX-9590 Eight-Core Processor. Temp sits at 33 when idling. Seems independent of kernel version.

I know this is OT, but I've always been a bit curious about the performance of an FX-9590 vs. an FX-8370 (which is what I have). I know the TDP is quite a bit higher (220W vs. 125W) but the operating frequency is a bit higher as well (5 GHz vs. 4.2 GHz).

I'm curious to know your experiences with the FX-9590. Was the performance difference worth the higher power consumption?

Thanks for your indulgence. Happy Slacking!

Well, not having an 8370 to compare it to for daily tasks I can't evaluate if it is worth the higher power consumption. First thing I noticed after installing it is that a liquid cooling system is mandatory. Generates a LOT of heat. With all 8 cores flat out it draws about 203 watts and heats up to 57-59 degrees. When the job is done and it is idling it hovers around 32-33 degrees and draws 64-84 watts (based on glances/sensors measurements). Takes about 5'30" to build a new kernel. Builds FF-78.0.1 in 43 minutes with PGO enabled and the memory limiting bit in the Slackbuild commented out (this included building the autoconf, cbindgen and nodejs). Is it worth it? Can't say. Suits my needs. Have had it for some time.

To me that means 5 feet and 30 inches.
Do you mean 5 minutes and 30 seconds or 5 hours and 30 minutes?

Thanks for the response. Definitely satisfies my curiosity. I feel the same about my FX-8370. It suits my needs, and have had it for some time (4+ years). Supposedly better options are out there (e.g. Ryzen), but a) Don't have the cash flow for an upgrade, especially as it would also entail a mobo and RAM upgrade, and b) I don't believe I would experience much better performance over my current processor. Sure, benchmarks for productivity applications and games show remarkable improvement, but for what I do with my computer, those benchmarks are essentially useless. The most demanding productive activity is kernel compilation, and I have assembled an icecream cluster to assist with that. The most demanding game I run, DOOM Eternal, runs at an acceptable framerate, even at the most detailed settings.

As long as my current system does what I need it to do, I see no need to "upgrade". As the old saying goes:

Actually that notation has several meanings. I meant 5 min and 30 sec. Also not 5min and 30 seconds of arc as in 6534'28".

Just double checked and on 5.4.50 I have an idle (right now) of 24 degrees Celsius while 5.7.7 idles on 53 degrees. Looks like I might be the only one though so perhaps a local issue. I will stick with the stock kernel for a while then and listen for any overheating CPU stories...

The iwlwifi driver is still broken in 5.7, it seems. I've got 9260 and 9560 wireless modules from Intel. The firmware loading fails. Currently, I built Linux 5.7 with the directory drivers/net/wireless/intel from Linux 5.4.
