    Phoronix: The Linux 3.13 Kernel Is A Must-Have For AMD RadeonSI Users

    The Linux 3.13 kernel that will be released in the very near future is very worth the upgrade if you are a RadeonSI user -- in particular, the Radeon HD 7000 series GPUs and newer on the Gallium3D Linux graphics driver -- but other open-source graphics driver users as well may also see nice improvements in the new kernel release. Here's some benchmarks showing off the gains found with the Linux 3.13 kernel for Radeon HD and R9 graphics cards.

    Impressive.

    BTW I've just disabled adblock for phoronix.com domain, I don't know why I didn't that before...

    That's pretty huge. I would love to see the difference in more modern games, however -- perhaps Dota2 or TF2, or if anyone has any comparisons between Wine performance.

    See the note in the article why Source Engine games weren't used.

    I was running on nodebug kernel 3.13 rc8 (beware of my mistakes).

    Maybe now AMD Steam Box can use RadeonSI?

    Hi,

    Anyone know how the FirePro W600 is performing with RadeonSI? I'm wondering about W600 (instead of 2x NVS 510) for a six monitor setup.

    Thanks!

    LOL. When I saw that in the article, I was wondering if anyone would ask the question and what your response would be. I'm surpised and impressed.

    Because as always it's to be read as he's too lazy to do anything that isn't completely automated. I still await the day that the other review sites start using SteamOS as their OS.

    Clearly irony is not a word you are familiar with! If you're really that interested in a certain game's performance you could always test it yourself.
