    Well, for me these are both ridiculous high numbers. Has AMD or Nvidia actually a working solution on Linux where you can use such a high end card in combination with an IGP where the total graphics power consumption is less than 10 watt during normal desktop usage just doing a framebuffer refresh?

      Alright, it's not so important.



      I'm happy with the newest catalyst driver - if I don't 'touch' it it works. When AMD will really improve video playback and stability their drivers should be as good as Nvidia. I hope this happen in few months.

          Quite a few people care about GPGPU, personally for me it's more a concern then gaming in linux.

              anmd gpgpu works just fine with STREAM.

              btw, nvidia fanboys:
              intel just sued nvidia about nehalem chipsets. This will be funny to watch.

                      • I guess all the tearing and flickering in videos playing on ATI hardware has screwed with your mind pretty heavily.

                        • except that I don't have any tearing and flickering. How comes? Oh wait! I don't use that broken POS compiz ....

                          • compiz + mplayer/x11, no flickering or tearing here.

                            • I use KDE 4. And in case you all wonder, this is A CONFIRMED problem with modern hardware. "Works for me" ain't a damn cent worth for those where it DOESN'T work.

                              "Works for you?" Great, I'm so happy for you. Doesn't help me though, now does it?

                              • Yes, it is worth a cent. It lets people know that it can work.
                                So it doesn't work with KDE 4 you say? Last time I checked, this was a Linux forum and we shouldn't suffer from lock-in.
