    Phoronix: Early Open-Source Linux Benchmarks Of The AMD Radeon RX 470

    With my Radeon RX 470 retail unit finally having arrived yesterday, I've been running many benchmarks of this graphics card compared to other AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards under Linux. For your viewing pleasure today is the very tip of the iceberg of many RX 460 and RX 470 Linux benchmarks to be published on Phoronix over the days to come.

    I don't think it's "not getting any love" as much as "no developer being able to reproduce the rumored performance regression yet". As of yesterday (or day before, I forget) we have a bug ticket and can hopefully start accumulating enough info for a developer to be able to repro.

    So when you factor that in...
    This is a big factor! Open-source performing this well is impressive.

    Oh, I meant in Michael's tests. He doesn't seem to include it in testing anymore, at least not frequently. I know there was a big regression earlier, I hope that's been fixed but haven't seen anything about it.

    Michael presents the data, and we draw the conclusions

    My old ati card had sufficient performance, but had problems rendering 3d textures.
    The answer is:
    If you can find an AMD card which has enough performance for you TODAY, go for AMD as it is slower than NVidia, but is more future proof.
    If you can't fullfill your current performance needs with AMD or want a low power media center pc for your living room, you're better off with NVidia.

    Because I have little interest in going through 5 pages of bar plots. Typically, I'd like to read the first page to know the test setup, and a conclusion to get a high level summary. Then if something catches my attention/curiosity I can go through the data as needed.

    And I get and respect that he is busy, but I won't buy that writing a 2-3 sentences summary will increase the workload. There are some articles where he does it, such as this one: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...-anv-wsl&num=5 .
