    I tried using SNA for the first time a few days ago. Performance is overall *much* better, but sometimes there are some graphical glitches with text becoming stretched and slanted. Selecting the text...

    The open source driver still isn't viable for serious/competitive gaming, but it's getting there. Good seeing so much AMD news lately.

    Your HD 7770 works really well now? I thought the performance on Southern Islands was still much slower than previous generations and unrelated to the DPM.

    What? No.

    You're comparing different operating systems with different drivers, yes. But that's the point... this is what the end user will see. The open source driver is the default/standard on...

    I disagree. The power management on Radeon is apparently very comparable to that of FGLRX now. The performance is still not acceptable for "real" gamers, but for many people it's more than enough.

  6. Font Rendering

    By default, yes. However, Fedora with the Infinality patches has the best fonts I've ever used on any OS.

    Give it a try: http://www.infinality.net/blog/infinality-freetype-patches/

    Shouldn't Haswell be faster than is being demonstrated here? Were the performance improvements exaggerated by Intel or is the driver not quite ready yet?

    I'm not really sure why "fragmentation" is still an argument when referring to Linux, really.

    If I were in the position of making the decision about porting a product (game) to Linux, here's what...

    This is exactly what Canonical and Red Hat do with Ubuntu LTS and RHEL. Things are often backported to the LTS/RHEL releases. You don't have to use the newest Fedora/Ubuntu... that's your own choice...

    I should probably update this, even if it wasn't the original plan.

    I decided to get an NVIDIA card and ignore AMD completely for now. So far, every graphical issue I had is 100% solved. My system...

    Yep, I'm quite aware of what it's intended for. My issues with this card aren't with the performance, but rather with the Fglrx issues that I can't seem to escape from. The open source driver works...

    1. Yep, I am a long time NVIDIA user who decided to give AMD a go after seeing some improvements with the open source stuff. I tried to make do with Fglrx until OSS catches up, but it's just nowhere...

    How would it double the open source team? I'm quite sure that the FGLRX people are restricted due to proprietary bits, etc.

    Indeed- that's pretty much my understanding on the situation. It's just such a shame that I have to sacrifice a proper desktop experience in order to have acceptable 3d for gaming, etc.
