I really hope that the open source drivers will get better soon. But I have doubts if they could ever run gl2benchmark without glitches. fglrx is in a heavy broken state, especially for Xserver 1.4. Since new codebase gl2benchmark test 3/4 do not run and with Xserver 1.4 and 64 bit it just segfaults... 8.40.4 worked btw... Let's see how long it will take to get really good drivers.
No announcement yet.
