    Oh well.
    It is not fast. Compared to the blob.
    But the fps seems clearly playable so it's already quite usable for that purpose. I wonder if I'll fire up my ancient Geforce 2 one day again.

      This level of performance is enough to use a compositing window manager with fancy effects. Before, this was not possible with Kepler unless you used the proprietary driver. I think it is a great step forward and I'm sure performance will improve as they continue working on it.

There is no excuse for such a performance hit. They need to learn programming first before starting to write drivers. The radeon guys have the documentation and yet they still don't get anywhere the official blobs' performance. Shitty programmers, that is all.
        Seriously, what is wrong with you?

          Exactly! That's why you'll never find Linux in HPC... oh wait.

              Donate your hardware to nouveau. Do first and second* good thing in your life!

              Thanks for removing reclocking support, nvidia
              Another 25% performance for radeon and you are gone off linux market.

If they did their work properly we would have the official blobs running correctly without the companies needing to change and adapt drivers every month with every new X.org release.
                What a spoiled brat...

                  hello... is this benchmark done using the bumblebee project.. as nvdia GT 600 series drivers arent used natively on linux?

                  Thanks.

                    Yeah, I modify my kernel every time I want to play flash games. Linux is not f*cking windows with security holes unfixed for years and there are many reasons to not have a stable abi. Man, you have no clue. Go home.
