Linux 6.0 Kernel Improves CPU Energy Efficiency and Bolsters Security with Runtime Verification

By ET Bureau - October 04, 2022 1 Mins Read


The 6.0 kernel, the latest version, was released by Torvalds. Since the March 2019 release of version 5.0, the jump to 6.0 represents the first significant version number change.

Enhanced support for Intel Arc A770 GPUs and Intel Habana Labs Gaudi 2 AI accelerators is one of the new hardware drivers in Linux 6.0. Rust was not included in Linux 6.0, but it is now very likely that it will be in the Linux 6.1 kernel release, which may be available by the end of 2022.
