Today I upgraded my kernel to 4.6 and I have to admit I can really few a small improvement in the performance this time, possibly due to the fact I’m using ext4. Here is the release announcement. Here is the full list of features that landed!

 Kernel_4.6

uname -a

Linux ubuntumate 4.6.0-040600rc5-generic #201604242031 SMP Mon Apr 25 00:34:15 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

If you don’t believe me here are some benchmarks

And here is how you can get it installed in your system if you also want to try it:

mkdir kernel

cd kernel

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.6-yakkety/linux-headers-4.6.0-040600_4.6.0-040600.201606100558_all.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.6-yakkety/linux-headers-4.6.0-040600-generic_4.6.0-040600.201606100558_amd64.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.6-yakkety/linux-image-4.6.0-040600-generic_4.6.0-040600.201606100558_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Cheers!
