Radeon Gallium3D With Mesa 8.0: Goes Up & Down

The system state was maintained for all graphics cards and for the entire time of testing except for switching to Mesa 7.11 (the mesa-7.11 tag in Git) and then testing under the Catalyst Linux driver. The Radeon X1800XL graphics card could not be tested under Catalyst since its support was dropped in 2009 from the Catalyst driver and that release is no longer compatible with newer Linux distributions. The Radeon hardware support in Mesa 8.0 contains near complete OpenGL 3.0 / GLSL 1.30 support, but it is not 100% there or as rich as the Intel Sandy Bridge DRI driver support of GL3. Hopefully with Mesa 8.1 later in 2012, we will see better GL3 support out of the Radeon Gallium3D hardware drivers.

All of this benchmarking was handled automatically by the Phoronix Test Suite and the data then hosted on OpenBenchmarking.org.
