    Almost all screenshots contain some weird artifacts - are they intentional or I'm hallucinating?

      Good. Unigine and Valve are pushing AMD hard to improve their driver.

        Interestingly nobody mentions an Oilrush demo, does anybody like to buy it without testing? Would be a good candidate for Steam as well...

          Oilrush is on steam, but not the linux version. But yeah, a demo would be nice.

            It shows up in my library as an installable Linux game. However like many games with existing Linux clients, it's not been enabled yet and trying to install it downloads no files, and running it says "missing executable".

              lol @ 4fps @ Fermi with a tiny window. That's one heavy load.

                    Also Nvidia drivers sucks

                    Source
                    There's this strange situation with OpenGL drivers ATM, especially on Linux. Strictly speaking, latest NVidia driver itself is slightly faster in OpenGL/Linux, than in Windows/D3D. However, seems that shader performance when running with it is much lower. This is the 50% speed difference people are talking about. Shader performance is largely a factor of shader compiler embedded in the driver. NVidia is working on this, and if they make it as fast as on d3d, cards like yours will probably benefit the most, due to the aforementioned bandwidth issue.
