Last weekend we provided benchmarks for NVIDIA's GeForce GPUs on Enemy Territory: Quake Wars after the native Linux client was released on the previous day. However, we hadn't delivered our ATI Radeon benchmarks since we knew the release of the fglrx 8.42 driver was just days away. Now that the AMD 8.42.3 Linux Driver was released this afternoon, we have ET: Quake Wars benchmarks to share from the Radeon X1950PRO, HD 2600PRO, and HD 2900XT.
With the ATI Radeon X1950PRO 256MB, HD 2600PRO 256MB, and HD 2900XT 512MB, we had run the fglrx 8.42.3 driver with Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. The rest of the system consisted of dual Intel Xeon E5320 Quad-Core processors, Tyan Tempest i5000XT motherboard, 4GB of DDR2-533 FB-DIMM memory, OCZ 750W PSU, and Seagate 300GB SATA 2.0 hard drive.
Like our NVIDIA ET:QW performance article, we had used the time-demos on the Valley, Refinery, and Slipgate maps.
