  1. Since these threads are full of people...

    Since these threads are full of people complaining, let me state for the record:

    Kayden: I appreciate the huge amount of work you guys have done and are doing for mesa.

    Bridgman: The fact that...

    Is this actually true? I would have expected the reduced double precision rate on consumer-level cards would be a hardware limitation, not a driver one. That is, while the same DP hardware is present...

    Thanks Michael, those perf per watt tests were really interesting.

    One of the things that surprises me is that the power consumption of the CPU relative the rest of the system has been steadily...

    Very much so.

    I mainly care about comparing the performance of various cards/drivers and tracking regressions/improvements, so this would be great!
  5. Very impressive stuff. Kudos to all involved!

    Very impressive stuff.

    Kudos to all involved!
  6. The main thing I get out of that picture is that...

    The main thing I get out of that picture is that I should rotate my case 180 degrees. I never use the front, and am constantly plugging things into the back.

    Why have I never thought of this...
  7. Sigh

    For all the people bashing Aspyr with the assumption that they've written off AMD support, please actually read the blog post and comments following it.

    They do intend to support AMD cards as soon...

    Those results are seriously impressive. I remember when this open source driver project first started it was hoped to eventually reach about 70% of the performance of the blob.

    Kudos to the...

    Er, what? I couldn't parse any of that.

    I run Ubuntu, and use OpenMP all the time for high performance numerical simulations. Works well, but it'd be nice to try with Clang rather than GCC.
  10. Ah Valve. You're some of my favourite people.

    Yes, really.

    Say you get a benchmark score of 80 FLOPS, iterations, whatever. Say it took 30 seconds, and the CPU used an average power of 50W over that time. So

    Performance per Watt =...

    I doubt it. I've never seen Michael fix an article, no matter how egregious the error.

    I actually came here to post a comment about the graph fail, but was gratified to see that everybody is...

    I always knew GRUB was the "everything including the kitchen sink" bootloader, but even with that in mind, I boggled at this entry in the changelog:

    Nice set of benchmarks

    That was a great set of benchmarks, Michael. Comprehensive, wide selection of applications, plus performance per watt.

    Thanks!
  15. The performance advantage of Windows over Linux...

    The performance advantage of Windows over Linux in the GPUTest Furmark and Pixmark is almost exactly a factor of two. This holds across all graphics cards from both vendors.

    This suggests it's...
  16. Kudos Michael, that was a good set of benchmarks....

    Kudos Michael, that was a good set of benchmarks. Relevant variables clearly seperated out and compared, with some demanding tests included (even if most of them failed!) rather than just open source...

    A couple of those results look odd.

    The Nexuiz 2.5.2 results are basically identical (to 4 significant figures!) between the 1920x1080 and the 2560x1600 resolutions. Even if that game were CPU...

    Agreed. We use it for stochastic simulations, where each path numerically solves a set of stochastic partial differential equations with different noises. The processes only need to communicate...

    Wow, this is the most enthusiastic I've ever seen you on these forums. In fact, it's the *only* time I've seen you enthusiastic :-P

    Do you work for them?
