It would be interesting to see how well it performs on the open-source drivers.
    Agreed! Does minecraft have a benchmark built in?

    I just looked it up and sadly, no. Minecraft doesn't have a built in benchmark.

    But, if you are interested, they have a page where people load the same world, at the same resoltuion, with the same settings and post their performance there. There are several linux entries there if you are curious.

    ps.
    When did they change it so you can only edit a post within 1 minute of posting it?

    I think it's interesting that these AMD GPUs running at 2560x1600 heavily outperformed NVIDIA binary blobs running at 1080p.

    Sadly this isn't enough. Things like mob AI (pathfinding, target selecting, ...), weather and other things are based on random generators. You would have to modify Minecraft to initialize all these generators with the same seeds every time but as Notch is a bad Java programme that might be a lot of work (I mean: protected int k = (new Random()).nextInt(); - seriously? In the same file we have public Random random = new Random(); - but that's just the server, we need the client, too...).
