    Phoronix: AMD R600 Gallium3D Is Mixed On Fedora 18

    After yesterday running some Intel Ivy Bridge graphics tests on Fedora 18 as a preview of future extensive benchmarks coming from the "Spherical Cow" release, here's some tests of the AMD Radeon R600 Gallium3D on this week-old Fedora Linux release compared to its "Beefy Miracle" predecessor from 2012...

    Really Michael? You run 3 benchmarks, two of which are just different versions of the same game and try to claim that's enough data to make a definitive statement about r600g's status. Nor do you bother to take the time to use the automated bisecting you bragged so much about to find out what commit caused the drop in framerate for only one version of a game? How about you do some actual investigation before "reporting" on these things?

    I thought Fedora 18 was using a 3.7.x kernel.

    Since F17 and F18 use different versions of mesa it's possible that the games are using different rendering paths or extensions due to the additional features supported in newer versions of mesa.

    It does ... it got released as an update ... F17 should get it soon as well. Testing Fedora without installing updates is not really testing the same that real users actually going to be using (the do install updates after all).
