    Phoronix: Radeon HD 7950 vs. GeForce GTX 680 On Linux

    Should you be looking towards purchasing a new high-end graphics card from AMD or NVIDIA, here are some updated benchmarks of the AMD Radeon HD 7950 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 when both graphics cards were tested under Ubuntu 12.04 with their proprietary Linux graphics drivers.

    How could the reviewer overclock the HD7950?
    I have a HD 7850 and i couldn't find any tool to change the frequencies of the card.

    i've got a 560 (so a step below a '70) and the performance is quite acceptable in Wine, but I haven't tried Skyrim. It seems there's no demo so I can't tell much, because atm Oblivion is being played through (on highest possible settings and non-laggy fps, not sure how get a counter up).

    One thing I didn't see discussed all that much here was performance in wine. I'm actually debating between the 7950/70 and the 670, and I'm thoroughly on the fence at this point due to these benchmarks. I play a ton of games in wine, mostly stuff like Skyrim, and I'd like to know which is better in that respect. Just about all of the reviews and benchmarks I've read favor the 670 in Windows, but that's Windows, not wine. If the fglrx drivers are improving at the rate that the Catalyst drivers are, and the cards are as overclockable as they seem, it looks like the 7950/70 is the way to go in Linux, but I'm still unsure. Anyone here actually use either one?

    I have one of these 680's now. But Not using it with Linux. Seems a bit of a waste to me. Nothing really takes advantage of the card....

    and the "Trivial" part is something like this: he can only make sure Future AMD products become more open-source friendly

    because of this there is a high chance to get opensource functionality on the "VCE" unit and the ( scope/room to move) for the UVD1 and UVD2 and maybe UVD3 unit is near by ZERO.
    the hardware pipeline of amd is 3-4 years this means amd need up to 4 years to chance hardware

    2013 this will be history and people can use opensource on amd hardware without "pain" LOL
    I LoL'd really hard to find that you're now the "Conspiracy Leader" ... xD

    I will believe that when I can see it, not one second earlier.

    Any questions? (Well technically it is not about Catalyst, but still)

    Yes AMD is still working on problems with the new design. In theory it has got a hardware h264 ENCODER like kepler but there is still no software that can access it.
