In recent months I have delivered a number of R600 SB shader optimization benchmarks for the AMD Gallium3D shader back-end that's part of Mesa 9.2. I've also delivered tests of the R600 LLVM back-end that's also been progressing in recent months and viewed as the future for AMD's open-source driver. This weekend are some independent tests of the R600 LLVM and SB back-ends.
