Tested yesterday at Phoronix was the AMD Catalyst 14.4 Linux performance where several newer, high-end graphics cards were tested from a Core i7 Haswell system. With that hardware, there was little in the way of OpenGL performance changes except for a couple of tests. Several Phoronix readers expressed interest in Catalyst 14.4 AMD AM1 APU tests in seeing if there are any improvements for the new APUs with Radeon R3 Graphics or performance improvements in general out of Catalyst 14.4 for reduced OpenGL overhead on lower-end processors. In this article are Catalyst 14.3 vs. 14.4 Ubuntu Linux benchmarks with an AMD Athlon 5350.

This testing was of the AMD Athlon 5350 APU with Radeon R3 Graphics (Radeon HD 8400) when running Ubuntu 14.04 with the Linux 3.13 kernel and testing Catalyst 14.3 (fglrx 13.35.5 / OpenGL 4.3.12798) and Catalyst 14.4 (fglrx 14.10.2 / OpenGL 4.3.12874).

As usual, all of this benchmarking was handled via the Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
