Isn't one test app enough? That's a test tool, that should test some needed functions which definitely work with nvidia. Of course the production apps are not all opensource. Maybe somebody else knows additional examples.
gl2benchmark is a no longer maintained tool though...
Wow, just read the phoronix article.
I'm really looking forward to the upcomming 8.10 driver, hoping I'll get XServer 1.5 support on my birthday (15th Oct 08)
Well, guess I was right actually
I'm really interested in what has been going on there "behind the scenes", hopefully the coming days clear that thing up.
Maybe ATI is really into public beta testing these days...
But what's so groundbreaking about this driver other than X Server 1.5 support? I don't see what the big issue is..
And also, I have to agree with Kano, 3D apps shouldn't have to make workarounds for ATI cards, one 3D rendering command should work for all..
i hope the ati developers were just trying to get on par with the windowsdrivers, featurewise...
so they are going to fix all the bugs they created on their way with the future releases...
otherwise they will go nowhere with their drivers having a lot of features with none working correctly!
