    Wow, so AMD/ATI's ~$100 card slightly beats nVidia's ~$100 card on Linux. Is that a first? I guess AMD/ATI has finally arrived.

    When the improved drivers were first released I saw complaints of bugs etc. I haven't been paying attention since then - are they still buggy? If not, my next card might be a Radeon.

    my 3870 is very quite in linux, no diffrence from windows.

    same goes for 3850 .
    2900 XT makes noise running compiz, no wonder since compiz use gpu

    How do those stream processors perform for non-OpenGL tasks, like BrookGPU applications or alternate rendering algorithms like Metropolis light transport and photon tracing?

    Or, as they say on engadget, "does it blend?"
    I want to use it to decode my .ogg's for me...

    Oops, didn't mention the fan speed in the article. The fan is very quiet using fglrx. I cannot comment for the open-source RadeonHD driver since it doesn't yet contain the RV635 support.

    How noisy is the fan?

    Last week AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 3400 and 3600 series, which are the new low-end graphics processors compared to the Radeon HD 3800 series. These budget graphics cards are branded as the Radeon HD 3450, 3470, and 3650 and are all available for under $100 USD. While they may be cheap, they are the first graphics cards to introduce support for DisplayPort. DisplayPort is the newest digital display interface standard, backed by VESA, and is direct competition to HDMI. DisplayPort has yet to be fully supported by the available Linux display drivers, but the Catalyst Linux driver already supports these new ATI graphics cards and there will be open-source support through the RadeonHD driver in the coming days. At hand today we have the Sapphire Radeon HD 3650 512MB graphics card as we deliver the first Linux benchmarks for this RV635 GPU.

    So, how noisy is the fan and does it stay quiet under OpenSource linux drivers, or does it ramp up to keep the sucker cool? Noise is important to me since I wnat to build a new system which has decent OpenGL performance, but is also quiet.

    Hmm... it would be nice to include a graph of price/FPS in your reviews, if only to show relative costs for a particular frame rate.

    Also, Watts/FPS would be interesting to see to, if only to help gauge efficiency of the cards.

    Thanks,
    John
