    Phoronix: The AMD Radeon R9 Fury Is Running On Linux Right Now

    As an update to last week's article and for those not following me on Twitter, the R9 Fury graphics card is running right now on Linux. The long-awaited AMD Fiji Linux test results are now imminent...

        Just saw the first OpenGL 4K result file pass..... Worse than I expected... I need a drink.

          Huh, don't expect anything without a drink ... if it is CPU capped in some case that is fine

          I am mostly interested in 4K/FullHD Unigine tests, openarena and maybe something that has profile like TF2 eventually CS:GO renamed

            It's not much faster than an R9 290 even in those cases... and no CPU bottleneck, unless just a driver bottleneck, given the much faster NVIDIA results.

              have some good beer and Hunter S. Thompson the article. It's really more about the experience of benchmarking.

                Michael, hm, i don't believe... openarena must show something much better versus Hawaii

                  I pretty much expected that. I've learned from hard experience that Catalyst will let you down pretty much every time.

                  EDIT: Given that the R9 290 results seem to be way too low as well, I doubt very much it's a memory bandwidth bottleneck. So since the HBM memory isn't where the bottleneck is it won't make much difference.

                    Wish I had some good Bavarian beer for this article, but my wife's been making me drink wine lately instead for being "healthier"...
