When setting out on the benchmarking for this article we had no idea that in all of the Enemy Territory: Quake Wars benchmarks, ATI Linux would steal the lead from the latest Redmond operating system. Doom 3 had also performed very well under Linux with the latest ATI driver release. Being surprised by this, we are now going to be performing a much larger cross-platform comparison with multiple ATI Radeon graphics cards and we'll likely run the same set of tests on the NVIDIA side. We'll also throw Windows XP into the mix along with more games/benchmarks. Prior to the introduction of the fglrx 8.41 and 8.42 display drivers, seeing these results would have been impossible. The ATI Radeon HD 2900XT is proving to be quite a splendid graphics card offering for Linux users -- along with the forthcoming official open-source support.
