    Xonotic is a dream now? I'm sure I've played it in real life.

    The game developer is often to blame, writing their software for NVIDIA too often.

    What ever happened to HyperZ? Are there plans to get it fixed so it can be re-enabled by default? I know it's a bit undermanned and priorities must unfortunately be made, but the speed up would be amazing.

    I found the opposite. Oh sure, my fps was higher, but it was all jittery.

    Then that means Vadim optimized SB backend for 6870 and other VLIW5 hardware, but not for 6950, etc... So it is in similar situation like GCNs which some months ago all perform slower then 6870, but not today.

    That also may mean VLIW4 might work better with llvm then , but i don't really know - don't have a hardware .

    Mabye VM implementation for VLIW4, like for GCNs in kernel 3.16 can make it fly .

    Frame time measurement is taken to look for "spikes" that might make you lag during gaming. As in, the variance between the average frame time and a frame that took a very long time to render, and how much does this happen during the test.
    ? The box plot has this information. It may not be as intuitive, but you can learn to read it pretty fast.
