    This has got to be the dumbest computer related debate I've seen in a while. While I am an AMD user myself, none of your opinions really matter when tests show that in linux, nvidia is CURRENTLY more cost effective and a better all around product. In the windows world, both brands are about equally as good - it all depends on what you do.

    I feel like it won't be long until AMD's radeon drivers will catch up with the nvidia closed source.

    Sure.
    Code:
    xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1440x900 --scale-from 5120x3200 --panning 5120x3200
    It should work in theory without the panning part, but in practice the mouse will be stuck in the 1440x900 part of the picture, adding the panning option fixes it. Make sure to set panning back when you switch to the original resolution:
    Code:
    xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1440x900 --scale 1x1 --panning 1440x900
    Not sure why you'd want to do that though, it won't look good.

    Maybe he thinks about opensource radeon driver . That driver scale up very well with higher resolutions, but only with hyperz enabled... when i see here fglrx on Radeon 7950 can beat GeForce 780Ti in Counter Strike Source benchmark, i came to think opensource radeon driver with the latest code can beat nvidia blob easely there too .

    Just one who have a cards need to benchmark that scenario .

    That is what I meant. The open source drivers have made very steady progress and are already starting to exceed catalyst. It doesn't matter "how long" people said it will catch up, because it IS catching up. It has a long way to go while at the same time it's completion is just around the corner. Considering how far behind they were before AMD's involvement and considering the lack of support, they're doing an amazing job. Catalyst, however.... I don't see that keeping up for very long.

    Sure, Nvidia "wins".
    Gtx 770 (~300$) beats r9 290 (~360$) in all tests.

    damn even the 7950 is too close in performance with the 290 in some cases... they need to fix the drivers.

    Also good look with crossfires... is not too reliable even on windows games.

    There are 11 tests, r9 290 is not available in 4 of them, that is 7 tests... in those 7 tests GTX 770 beats r9 290 in 5 of them. How you can call that "all tests" ?

    In Europe prices for those two cards are the same .

    That should depend in what part of Europe then, cause I'm European and the prices are far to be the same.

    Spain :S
