The FirePro V3800, V5800, and V8800 graphics cards have all worked quite well under Linux with recent proprietary driver releases. To no surprise at all, so did the V4800 and V7800. Even using the proprietary ATI Linux driver bundled with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS that is the fglrx 8.72.11 release, the graphics cards had worked properly. With Ubuntu 10.04 LTS we also re-tested all of these FirePro graphics cards under this latest Ubuntu Linux operating system release that bears Long-Term Support from Canonical. Ubuntu 10.04 uses the Linux 2.6.32 kernel (x86_64), GNOME 2.30.0 desktop, X.Org Server 1.7.6, fglrx 8.72.11, GCC 4.4.3, and an EXT4 file-system by default.
The test system remained the same with the dual AMD Shanghai Opteron 2384 processors, a Tyan Thunder n3600M motherboard, a SilverStone Decathlon 800W power supply, 4GB of ECC Registered memory, and a 160GB Western Digital SATA hard drive. Results from the ATI FirePro V3800, V4800, V5800, V7800, and V8800 are included in this article. Again, our tests included VDrift, Lightsmark, Unigine Sanctuary, Unigine Tropics, Unigine Heaven, and SPECViewPerf 10.0. The Phoronix Test Suite powered all testing.
