    Finally some benchmarks for my rare HD4770 <3. A pity the HD4xxx series was left unsupported by AMD (even on Windows). That's a shame actually. NVIDIA has considerably better legacy support.
    With those benchmarks however I might reconsider my next graphics card to be from AMD. Only the heat production might still cause headaches...

      Yes I'm a hd4770 owner to and sure its better to lose 20% of the speed and use a modern Linux distribution instead. Its just not a option to use old Open-Source software only because a buggy and shitty catalyst driver force you to.

      So for me the Radeon driver is 10000X times better than the catalyst.

      It also saves time to! I just don't care about the catalyst any more.

      P.S. for the AMD management: Why I don't buy new HD7000 class hardware and i buy outdated used dx10 class hardware instead ? simple: the Radeon driver is not in a usable status. So AMD(MAD) loses money on Management failure but who cares? I Don't.

        Well, you are doing them favor. You buy HD4xxx class hardware, that no one else will buy, so you are helping them to get rid of old quantities

          That’s a illusion because you only make real profit with shiny expensive new products.
          And if you buy used products they don't sell any hardware...

          My new computer I bought this month: 8core amd cpu 150€ am3+ mainboard 100€ and a used hd3850 for 20€.......

          AMD CPU division and Chipset division make 250€ (sure endconsumer price) on me

          AMD-GPU division don't make any money on me and that's for sure!

          and this does not mean that i don't need a faster GPU-card... ARMA2 now runs on linux in wine even with the opensource driver but its just hopeless to get "Performance" and the feature level....

          A hd7970 just don't work for Arma2 and opensource drivers...

          I think I can buy a new card next "year" then the opensource driver works for the hd7000 cards.
