    From a power perspective is 20-30% GPU usage during acceleration worth dropping CPU utilisation by about 6%.
  2. I didn't say you're not allowed to have whatever...

    I didn't say you're not allowed to have whatever opinion you like but it should be an opinion that's on topic. As Wayland is neither currently or at this time planned to be a part of the Ubuntu...

    Do you also go on Porsche forums to let people know you want a Ferrari?
  4. Was that also confirmation at the end of the...

    Was that also confirmation at the end of the video that the next gen Pirate Islands cards from AMD will be arriving in the next 6-12 months?

    Sounds like it has been mothballed pending partners rather than cancelled completely.

    Years ago people were saying the same thing about Linux in data centres but none questions it today. Business isn't about taking the easy paths all the time that it's the surest way to failure, it's...

    I think you should have spent more time at school doing maths, the difference ids less than 50% which is probably predominantly a memory bandwidth issue.

    If you want to cheery pick benches make a...

    Depending on the frequency and duration of the peaks this means the average FPS for the rest of the (non-peak) frames will have actually dropped by more than 10%. This sounds like quite disastrous...
  9. Cards of what calibre? There aren't any top end...

    Cards of what calibre? There aren't any top end cards here from AMD as mentioned in the comments above. The most expensive card tested is slightly cheaper than a GTX 760 (even with the profiteering...

    The lowest performing AMD cards were still able to hit around 120 fps even in their worst performing benchmarks, I'd hardly call that terrible.
  11. This has more to do with the hardware than the...

    This has more to do with the hardware than the drivers, comparing a 780ti to R9 270X you are taking the best Nvidia card ($699 RRP) against a midrange AMD card ($199 RRP).

    Even taking into...
  12. How comes the R9 290 is never benchmarked...

    How comes the R9 290 is never benchmarked recently? I appreciate AMD haven't sent you any new cards but you may as well review the ones you have.

    If it is due to time it would be better to drop...

    It would be really interesting to see if the performance delta between Linux and Windows on the R9 290 card has been reduced in the latest drivers.

    Dan Baker the developer who ported Star Swarm to run on Mantle said 'All we did for Mantle was replace the D3D module with a Mantle one. It's about 3,000 to 4,000 lines of code for the Mantle...

    Thanks Blackout, it was early and I've previously used Nvidia hardware for many years.
  16. GPU processing power has been accelerating...

    GPU processing power has been accelerating exponentially faster than that of CPUs for a long time. This means with each new generation of hardware even the fastest CPUs will increasingly become more...

    Does Mantle complement OpenGL and Direct3D or completely replace them?

    I was under the impression it was a complete replacement API rather than an extension for existing APIs?
  18. Does this mean AMD plan a migration from Catalyst...

    Does this mean AMD plan a migration from Catalyst in the medium to long term if and when the FOSS drivers reach feature compatibility?
  19. An update on the progress of porting Mantle and...

    An update on the progress of porting Mantle and TrueAudio over to Linux and if they will be implemented into the FOSS drivers.

    These are both key features which would help elevate AMD's APU into...

    With the arrival of Steam OS on the horizon and the current state of both existing AMD drivers - Catalyst (buggy) and FOSS (Feature incomplete), if AMD were to release Mantle as both an open format...
