    I meant included in the charts together with Kaveri for easy comparison.

    Then he must test it again, because of different mesa used and there will be difference when 6870 tested with CPU on this APU against i7-4790k, etc.

    How is perceived 2D performance with Catalyst? I cannot run it on my A10-5800K on KDE because composited 2D (smooth scrolling in Firefox and Chrome eg) is so choppy when it feels like butter with Gallium.
    I have an AMD A10-5700 APU that I would like to see benchmarked, but the only problem I have is underscan for my 39" HDTV connected through my Marantz AVR-SR5008 receiver via HDMI 1.4 cable. My TV is a Vizio E390-B0 and with Catalyst 14.4, there is no slider to correct underscan. I don't have that problem with Mesa/radeon driver.

    Yes!
    That is why I asked for to include it for fair comparison.

    Edit: And inclusion of Kabini and Richland/Trinity would have been nice too.

    This article just compare fglrx driver vs opensource driver using same APU . It is about changing a driver on the same machine

    So not sure, does some people want to combine this APU with the 6870 dedicated card

    Oh, i think i understand now you wanna bloated charts with no hardware missed .

    No, but some people want to compare the difference between open source and closed source on a dedicated Northern Islands card with Sea Islands in this APU.

    :-(
    Instead of 1, 2, 3 or 4 bars 2, 4, 6 or 8 bars. Bloated charts?

    Do you mean instead of Sea Islands, or are you imagining something like Crossfire across two totally different hardware generations (which AFAIK neither driver supports).

    I just ran these tests on my slackware system with comparable custom package versions.

    The only real problem i'm getting is with l4d2 not rendering/loading the hair for the survivors.

    Can anyone else with mesa 10.3.0-devel check if they are having this issue ?

    When will the new Catalyst driver (the one that uses the open source kernel component) arrive? I'm hoping that will push AMD to become the first GPU choice for Linux gamers, instead of NVidia.
