No OpenCL on HD4xxx either (at least not on the 4890), due to it using some funky OpenCL implementation.

Thanks to open source drivers developers!
No Unigine benchmarks
Nice work, however:
1) The games used for benchmarks are obsolete. At least add Unigine Valley benchmark.
2) Modern graphics cards are not included.
This benchmark is about the fact that the R600g driver has caught up with Catalyst.

Michael explained it in the first paragraph of the article, actually.
