    How can I run this exact test suite on my machine?

    If running Debian you can install it via deb package and following the instructions.

      No, those systems are busy with other stuff and testing from Haswell CPU since its faster...

          maybe some test results with games like dota 2 would be nice!

            That's an interesting improvement indeed. It will be interesting to see the next benchmark. A comparison with Catalyst would also be nice.

                I've been able to confirm this so far on a HD 6000 and HD 4000 different GPUs and a completely different PC.

                  Which doesn't really make sense - considering -every- -other- benchmarking site out there does this - is it really that difficult ?

                    Pretty much every other Windows review site out there has multiple reviewers... With everything I am already doing single-handedly and with horrible profit margins, I refuse to do tests manually. Plus all the benefits that test automation brings for accuracy and reproducibility, etc.

                      While I agree I really think you should come out with a solution, is it possible that steam doesn't have any kind of API you can use for benchmarking?

                        Please, include E-350 into the testing mix.

                        I've seen many testimonials of AMD Radeon 4850 owners who were unhappy with Linux 3.11. Couldn't this be simply a bug fix for Radeon 4850?

                            The only thing I can think of that may have improved things is changing the default gart size on r7xx+ asics from 512M to 1024M. If anyone want to test different gart sizes, you can change the gart size with the gartsize radeon kernel module parameter. E.g., add radeon.gartsize=1024 to the kernel command line in grub. Default is 512M for r1xx-r6xx and 1024M for r7xx+.

                              my experience

                              AMD 6850 / Nexuiz

                              Kernel 3.11 old git ( HEAD is now at f7217b9 r600g: enable SB backend by default )

                              NORMAL: 98,5 fps
                              ULTRA: 56,8fps


                              Kernel 3.12 / git commit 453ea2d309c0314bea8a209f536e2b3c2c4d92c6 / Date: Sun Oct 13 19:53:54 2013 +0400

                              NORMAL: 206 fps
                              ULTRA: 108 fps

                              Pretty nice speed up for me.

                                Something strange and potentially wonderful is afoot, methinks.
