8-Way AMD Gallium3D vs. Catalyst Ubuntu GPU Benchmarks
Thanks for your reviews Michael, It's great to see how the open driver keeps getting better and better. I'll become a premium subscriber this upcoming Friday in thanks for your efforts.
The numbers look great only the 7850 looks odd in the Xonotic tests using the open driver I wonder what's different about this card? Number seems to be about half of what it should be compared to the rest of the cards in it's range.

These results make it a good Saturday for me. The free driver is constantly getting better. Once it was like a better VESA driver and now it even manages to beat fglrx sometimes on 3D workload. Awesome. Just the 6450 shouldn't be that slow. Well, maybe the devs have to add some quirks here and there for some cards.
I was also surprised that SI was already that much supported. If that also works with the APUs that use SI (Kabini?) then it would be really awesome since I could soon buy myself a nice Kabini board as HTPC. Or just a HD7750 for my main box as an upgrade. I'm sure there's also a passive version of that one around.
It's best to put RadeonSI+ cards on hold until LLVM 3.4 becomes stable and we can actually use it in Oibaf and Trusty Tahr. I can't even play a single Source game without open source drivers on my HD 7950 either CTDing or locking up the system.
For us who do not care at all about the games being used in benchmarking here, would it be possible to add a flightsim? Flightgear and X-Plane? The day X-Plane performs on par with FLOSS drivers as with closed drivers, I'm going fully FLOSS!
