An overpriced piece of hardware again. No, thank you.
Looking at the cost per performance ratio, I agree, AMD cards do not offer a compelling ratio in linux.

For also those complaining about Nvidia driver support for Linux - try running the shitty FGLRX/Catalyst drivers with a vaguely up-to-date or rolling distro... You will be weeping blood after a few days Personally not had any problems with Nvidia drivers (Arch, Gentoo, OpenSUSE, Mageia) - except for Canonicals insistence on packaging multiple version of the Nvidia driver, all with different kernel module names (perhaps they are too busy developing a phone/tablet OS that will probably never work or sell??)
missing game benchmarks
What the heck?
Why arenīt all game benchmarks Michael ran shown in the article?
There are only graphs for xonotic and openarena, but michael ran als Warsow, Nexuiz, reaction quake 3, unvanquished and counter strike source.
look here http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...SO-GTX780TIN09
If you look at those numbers you see the nvidia gtx 770 winning clearly 5 games, 3 are almost same fps as for R9 290. For the synthetical benchmarks the 770 wins 8 times, and loses 3 times.
