    That's pretty extreme - but I'd say that buying a 4870 was the worst mistake of my PC-building 'career'. It wasn't based on cost, it was to support AMD's "open" approach.

    To be sure I expected...

    Me too. I mailed my rebate back to epic with no return address & just a note to let them know I was proud to support a linux game publisher. Over the next few years UT2004 was the game that just kept...

    So how is Michael getting 80-90 fps on Doom3 in his PTS results for the 4850/4870?

    Come to think of it, I heard that ET:QW was capped too but the PTS results suggest otherwise. Maybe it's a...

    I'm getting 45-60 fps in normal gameplay in etqw (even on v. high detail settings) which is OK by me, but it's the stuttering that is driving me mad and led me to notice the problem in the first...

    OK I'll give it a shot, it'd be nice to be able to make a direct comparison. I'll be Tuesday before I can post back results though.

    Well I guess the PTS results will confirm or eliminate the...

    My figure of 30fps comes from flying around in "free camera" mode before the match starts (ie no bots at all) and zooming back so that a lot of the scenery is visible.


    Something is wrong, for...

    I'm not going to go 32-bit over a graphics card - that's really the tail wagging the dog. But I may install a 32-bit distro to test this issue - if I do, I'll be sure to post my results here.

    I don't think so because UT2004 ships with a 64-bit binary! But if it's true, please can you tell me:

    a) how would I tell?
    b) what can I do about it?

    Sorry if these are "noob" questions but I...

    No, not at all. On that scene in ONS-Crossfire (see my 1st post above), before the game has started, I average about 35 fps with "Catalyst AI" on or off, and with vsync "Always on" or "Always off"....

    No, vsync isn't on. When I look at the sky, or straight into a wall, I can get >200fps, so I'm pretty sure the frame rate isn't being capped.
  11. HD4870 performance is truly awful - fglrx Hardy x86_64

    I'm getting ~30fps in ut2004 with *minimum* in-game settings for everything and 320x240 resolution!

    Thanks for the report, I'm still on the fence myself.

    Could you answer a couple of questions?
    1) Were you using Catalyst 8.7? I've read at least one user reporting that the "system lockup after...

    Will Phoronix review the GTX 260/280?

    I've been hoping for a review of the GTX 260/280 under Linux for some time now. User feedback from the web has been scarce as hen's teeth.

    I know there's a lot of buzz surrounding ATI right now...

    Rotate screen with fglrx? (gets a bit ranty)

    Has anyone managed to get screen rotation working with the fglrx driver? I don't care if it's via RANDR, or the aticonfig utility or wherever. How does it perform? Can you still use OpenGL apps or...

    A very nice review, it was good to see the newer cards distancing themselves a bit more.

    Why were there no results for X-plane at higher resolutions and AA/AF settings? (This was what I was most...
