Too little, too late
Better, but not as good as NVIDIA
The best option for graphics drivers
OpenGL Windows Performance has improved a lot in the last years. It is as good as nVidias Performance "now".
If you knew what I did as a pastime as much as anything else, you'd know that I do not consider the mediocre performance in Windows to be acceptable, let alone the worse performance under Linux. However, having said that, stellar's something that's going to be tough to get for them on a first cut of the new codebase derived drivers- I'm willing to ask for realistic goals, which would be parity with Windows at this point. Parity with what's about to come out for MacOS would be perfect, but I don't see that as a realistic goal for them- though they could surprise us all the same.Would you be happy with that kind of performance though? I wouldn't...
i've got some interesting "news" from this thread (http://www.forum-3dcenter.org/vbulle...d.php?t=378087)
in a german 3d-forum. a "guest" (->anonymous) said that the new driver will be there in ~2 weeks. well, it's kind of rumour i think. (he talks about open source-driver, too. but he also knows the avivo project so it is not too fantastic since not everybody knows projects this kind). you can't take it that seriously, but i think every myth is based on a true event... .
what dou you think? 2 weeks? sounds fantastically^^
well, you're not the only one, i would join^^
on 10th september, they are going to present their new barcelona cpu. perhaps there are similarities/overlapping?! so it seems to be this month because there is still no 8.41?!
You will find out in due time...
