        Great. It would be awsome Linux catalyst vs Linux free driver (plus dpm (with the flag set in performance) + mesa 10.0) vs Windows 8.1. Afterall, this does not happen every day. It is important to know than W8.1 brings improvements for AMD cards.

            Working generally all day (12~14+ hours) and doing so 7 days a week, plus the automated support of the Phoronix Test Suite is a big factor in being able to get tests done properly and accurately and reproducible.
