    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 On Linux

    NVIDIA formally introduced the GeForce 400 "Fermi" graphics card series in late March when rolling out the GeForce GTX 470 and 480. This launch was followed by the GeForce GTX 465 availability in late May and then in the middle of July there was the launch of the GeForce GTX 460 768MB and GeForce GTX 460 1024MB graphics cards. For the past few weeks we have had our hands on the Palit GeForce GTX 460 768MB graphics card that was sent over by NVIDIA to conduct our first tests of the Fermi / GF100 hardware under Linux. While the GeForce GTX 460 isn't clocked as high as the GeForce GTX 480 and has a slimmed down core, its performance is rather nice for being a $200 USD graphics card and is able to pack a performance punch when using NVIDIA's proprietary Linux driver.

    how cares about Oil rush ?????? what does this Oil rush marketshare have? 0 % of all Strategie games ?

    play ta-spring its opensource and if you play the right map and mod its an nice graphic to.

    spring do have OGL 3 effects to like VTF and stuff.

    fglrx is not only the fastest, but also the most featurish. Though, those features are poorly supported.

    in daily use it makes no sence to me do benchmarks all the time...

    i know a lot of linux users and a lot of them just surfing in the web and watch videos and play music and this kind of people use radeon and this people are much more than the geeks using more than that.
    Pretty sure.

    if the radeon driver gets shader based video acceleration and opencl support the catalyst will lose more marketshare be sure !
    "If", this doesn't mean in a timely manner, neither with the same level of performance and functionality. Current OpenCL implementations are rather poor, both on the NVIDIA and ATI side. Some things are still better implemented in either CAL or CUDA. What a mess.

I can't find the link right but I'm sure it showed that fglrx outshone FLOSS ATI driver(s) by almost 2:1. It was in an article here on Phoronix and has been used in quite a few discussions.
    i only have catalyst results in the pts database but right now i use the radeon driver...

    and in the survey i vote for catalyst to....

    yes you read it right openCL+vid acceleration no need for openGL3/4 .....

    in my point of view modern graphic raytracing engines are writen in openCL and modern physic engines are writen in openCL programms like GIMP will be acceleratet by openCL

    there is no fucking need for openGL at all in an modern world.

    how cares about tesselation if you can have an openCL accelerated blender raytracing engine also used in an blender game engine...

    openGL upper than 2.1 ogl3+4 is just death no game use it no one need it clever and smart humans don't want it because they know openCL is the best.

    I'd like to know this too, I'd be surprised if it didn't.
    The series that pre-dates the current 400 series worked very well.

    I'd prefer a lower-end part like the GS420, as it's VA is likely to be just a good.
    But apparently it's only available to OEM's etc.
    In general, GTS and GS series are castrated and pretty low-end. Contrary to the common myth, especially on the mobile side (MXM), you can get NVIDIA Fermi chips at lower prices than an AMD Evergreen part, for the same performance, and even less power consumption. I was the first surprised by that, and I am not talking about 5% marginal difference...

    Heh I suppose you don't use Babelfish very often. Do you?

    Now about that non-economic driven society... what the hell has to do that with the fact that you call us fascists?
    First, I have told you before that every society was, is and will be economic-driven. The open source model is economically viable. If not then maybe Google, Intel, AMD, Nokia and dozens of other companies are full of illusionists... or maybe you believe that one and only one model can be economically viable because it happens to have the lion's part in a specific period!
    But again what that has to do with us being fascists? Because we play clearly and openly and we offer everything for free means we are obligated to open our house to everyone? You are fascist deanjo, you and your alike who get the education the ancestors offer you, you close it and packet it giving back nothing and leave noone to learn from it as if you gained your abilities magically outside from this world and thus you owe nothing and you believe thst you have the right to do so... and all these in the name of the very model you have based this paranoia!
    If we are fascists deanjo then you are what? Destroyers? Murderers? Or just uber selfish and scrooges? What? My english suddenly seems to be very poor to characterize you!
