    thatís for sure! i play very well with the radeon driver and my hd4770 card.

    the point is the catalyst makes headache and it doesnít worth it!

    in your right words the catalyst is a "directX" driver! not a openGL driver.

      no, i used heaven on win7 to compare opengl+dx11. but heaven+fglrx is even slower than win+opengl. win+dx11 scales with cf.

        Yeah, and this is why I'm waiting for RadeonSI to be viable. But in the mean time, I have to use fglrx, where I scroll the browser window and have to wait almost a whole second for the driver to catch up. I get a better rendering performance on the Intel driver on my little 965GM.

          the only time i got good performance with a FOSS driver other than intel's was with a dell with a 7xxx chip. the effects were so smooth and fast. I was really impressed. honestly i've never had performance issues with intel drivers from 965 and on. nouveau on the other hand is a crapshoot of kernel panics and artifacts.
