    Phoronix: AMD "RadeonSI" Team Fortress 2 Is Now 75% Faster

    The RadeonSI Gallium3D driver for AMD HD 7000 series GPUs and newer is now 75% faster for the Source Engine Team Fortress 2 game thanks to a new patch-set by Marek...

    Thank you Marek! And thank you AMD for committing to making Open Source drivers for your GPU.

    The kids are running TF2 on a HD7750 and an older Athlon X2 with OK performance. However I am looking forward to being able to sustitute Catalyst with the OS drivers :-)

    I guess southern islands shares a lot with northern islands? How different are the architectures anyway?

    Don't quote me on that but as far as I know, southern islands uses GCN (Graphics Core Next) that is why a new driver is implemented.

    Extremely different at a low level (VLIW4 vs GCN architecture).

    However, there is still a lot of higher level optimizations that can be shared.

    That looks like it probably patched ok. Apparently one of the changes has already been made by another patch. Did you try compiling it?
