    Phoronix: ASUS Radeon HD 7850 DirectCU

    Up for review today is the ASUS Radeon HD 7850 1GB DirectCU graphics card. This "Windows 8 Ready" AMD Radeon graphics card is being benchmarked under Ubuntu Linux and compared to an assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.

    HOW?!

    How are you able to get these results??
    I've been furious the last week of not being able to play with my XFX Radeon HD 7850
    Getting 5 fps in every game, benchmarked with unigine valley with 1 fps on low settings and AA disabled.

    I've tried installing proprietary drivers with fglrx + updates, directly from AMD website and beta updates aswell..
    HOW do you install your drivers??

    Same Heaven version? You see the recent update to it slowed it down a lot with more eye candy.
    Not sure.
    How recent?

    Don't worry, there are some bogus results (see my post above) and Michael does not seem to care or comment....

    Something is seriously wrong the nVidia 460 / 550Ti results.
    Last time I checked, my aging 470GTX ran the Heaven benchmark (w/o PTS) at ~30fps at 2560x1440... far, far from 4fps under 1280x1024.
    Granted, my Xeon workstation has more CPU power than the test-bed machine, but 4FPS!??!?!

    I did some initial tests with TF2 but without PTS. The problem i see is that you need overrides for all quality settings otherwise it is not compareable across other systems. As you can parse a log file it should be possible to integrate TF2 into pts. It is just not that much fun as the load times are really long.

    I used to complain about this, but i came to a realization.

    Phoronix is not a site about benchmarking linux or graphics.

    It's a site about showing off PTS.

    Which means, if PTS can't do it, it's not getting on Phoronix.
