    finally a team of dedicated support. lets hope we see a difference, the radeon drivers have a long way to go to be competitive to basically all drivers, proprietary and open source.
    which OS driver is better as the radon in your opinion?

      In one word:

      AWESOME


      I am hoping to see support for "Audio over HDMI" for Evergreen/N-Islands soon!

        Intel Sandy Bridge is much, MUCH better. I always hated Intel drivers, but they did a damn good work with Sandy Bridge! The HD3000 isn't very powerful (to be honest it sucks compared to Ati GPUs), but nonetheless it performs better than lots of Radeon cards because of better drivers, even better than their Windows driver

        I did some benchmarks in the end of may, now it's even better:

        Unfortunately there is no s3tc support, but you have hardware h264 encode and decode.
        ## VGA ##
        AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
        Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

          HTC just bought S3 Graphics for 300 million dollars, who knows what will happen.

            Are you sure about that? i965 have had S3TC support since, well ages, and I can't find any open bug reports about it missing this with SB.

              However, there aren't any commits for pipe-video for almost a month now...
              On the other hand bridgman mentioned they have something bigger coming down the pipe. No idea, though, if it has any relation to this.
              they don't work for the video codex acceleration in shader because its already done. "ATI Avivo"

              but open up closed source code need time

                  Are you sure? Planeshift does blacklist all intel drivers disabling s3tc texture compression.
                  Anyway I never tested s3tc on sandy bridge.

                    I'm sure about S3TC on G45 at least, haven't tried Planeshift though.

                      Uhm... how does it implement s3tc? I never heard of someone using libtxc_dxtn with intel drivers.
