    If this were any other distribution, Phoronix would have gone mental over the fact that it's only just become open source and made an article every few weeks over the last year entitled "WHY ISN'T...

    The 4770 is a "budget" graphics card so shouldn't the rest of the system reflect this too? I mean, people aren't going to be buying one of these to game at the resolution tested.
