      The list on their website isn't very complete. The real way to find out the supported cards is by having them listed in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

      I'm so glad I stumbled upon Phoronix. This is to the linux world what Tom's Hardware is to the windows world.

      Keep up the good work!

      I usually stay behind the curve on all hardware so the 1600pro or even the 1650pro which doesn't appear to have official fglrx support either would most likely be what I end up with.

        Good review.

        Is there any way of putting all your results in a table of sorts? That way we could compare all the cards you have reviewed in one place. I think a nice little spreadsheet with card name and the various frame rates would be awesome. A kind of one-stop shop for comparing the cards performance under linux. Just an idea.

                Somebody did and it is top dog now - lol. Over 5400 FPS.

                I finally got my 6600gt working in my system so the 9200 is back on the shelf for now. Still POSTs slow but working great otherwise.

                  What's this Free3D-Site being talked about, and where can I find it? Google doesn't come up with anything profound...
