    What would be the use of running a 5970 when a 5870 would probably give you the same results (if not slightly better because of the higher clock speed). Dual GPU cards are useless in linux (unless your doing GPGPU and the application can actually use more then one GPU)?

      I just got another palit gtx 265 thats waiting to be put into my computer... I lost all the cables to my modular power source. So SLI is gonna have to wait till i can find or buy two new 6-pin cables...

      But from what i've been reading, I'm only going to get to enjoy SLI in Windows anyways when I do get it running...

        That's the good side effect of a modular psu, you have to search for cables If you are lucky you will find 2 adapters in the gfx adapter's box, but then you would need 4 cables to connect.

          Amen.

          I hope the new Catalyst driver fixes the problems those cards were having so we can have some real comparisons.

              I guess I shoulda expected nothing more or less out of the ATI camp.

                10-8 can run unigine heaven with tesselation. but that seems the only fix visable. the new 2d engine is still pure crap. ati must love compiz/gnome and hate kde4.

                  That's not what Micheal said,

                  Besides the Catalyst 10.8 Linux driver offering OpenGL ES 2.0 support there is also production support for SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop / SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1. In terms of resolved bugs in Catalyst 10.8, it doesn't appear they have yet fixed the show-stopping Unigine Heaven problems for ATI Radeon HD 5000 "Evergreen" series graphics cards, but they have bothered to uselessly fix and note a 6% performance regression for glxgears / fgl_glxgears. Below are their other changes.

                    Well not all bugfixes are mentioned in the official changelog. But that was fixed for win with both beta 10-7 drivers, just not the release version. 10-8 can run definitely run heaven with tesselation.

                      I'll have to take your word for it. I can't justify blowing another cent on AMD gpus to verify until they can actually make it 3 driver releases without some major regression.

                        I hope that Phoronix will be doing some proper real world tests with this game, do you have an FPS counter?

                          do you really point an unigine-benchmark-only-nvidiatesselationcheating-test programm an REAL app?

                          in my point of view an app is an usefull and useable programm like an game or a cad software.

                          is there any unigine based game to buy or to download ?

                          no!..

                          this hole benchmarks are pointless 200fps LOL all results over 60fps are invalid!

                          in my point of view only 3 results are valid lower than 30fps RED no go lower than 60fps but highter than 30fps orange its ok but not optimal and over 60fps green ok.

                          so all results higher than 6xfps are invalid and totally nonsence.


                          and only REAL useable and usefull software are valid for testing hardware.



                          and its pointless to benchmark opengl2 on openGL4 hardware and openGL3 on openGL4 hardware its just pointless

                          you need an REAL usefull useable openGL4 app to benchmark openGL4 hardware!

                            i use kde4+10.8 and for me it works... what is your problem ?

                              Lol, read the article troll. If it don't run the apps it's about as efficient as a rock.

                                the article only talks about bullshit nonsence tests.

                                i don't care about benchmarks on non usefull and non useable and non interacting with mouse and keyboard.

                                all benchmarks target on useable/usefull/mouse+keyboard interacting software is over 60fps and this means its just invalid to read an artikle.

                                thats because you can buy the cheapest slowest worst card and this is fine for you!
